Celebrating Nurses Day: Three case studies in health

If the past two years have taught us anything, it’s that our people in healthcare are the backbone of our communities. This Nurses Day, Androgogic celebrates our client-partners in healthcare and their amazing achievements in the health industry. In this blog, we celebrate just three of our award-winning client-partners in healthcare.

Austin Health

Austin Health excels in high quality healthcare, training, and research across four main sites in Melbourne.

In addition to their work in healthcare, Austin Health is working with Androgogic, Eastern Health, and the Melbourne Academic Centre for Health (MACH) on a research project aiming to make it easy for hospitals to transfer training data.

This means that nurses, doctors, and other hospital staff won’t need to conduct the same basic training courses over again when onboarding at different institutions. Using xAPI and Androgogic’s learning records store (AndroLRS), Androgogic has worked together with Austin Health to successfully transfer this data automatically and securely.

Eastern Health

Eastern Health is one of Melbourne’s largest metropolitan public health services with over 50 facilities and supporting learning and development for over 10,500 staff, plus nursing, allied health and medical students. Providing clinical services to over 750,000 people plus a range of services including emergency, surgical, maternity, palliative, mental health and more, Eastern Health is a core part of Melbourne’s healthcare landscape. 

Eastern Health also offers a scholarship program to staff wishing to undertake further study in their chosen field. This scholarship ensures that nurses can broaden and deepen their knowledge to ensure the best possible level of care for patients. 

Androgogic is committed to supporting the Eastern Health Staff Development Scholarship, and has funded scholarships for several years.

Eastern Health is also a proud winner of a LearnX award in 2021 for their outstanding pandemic response. In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic meant that all face-to-face training at Eastern Health had to stop, and a rapid transition involving the development of online resources had to commence immediately. The transition to online learning, supported by Androgogic, allowed learners the same freedom and flexibility as face-to-face learning. 

The McGrath Foundation

The McGrath Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation committed to providing specialist breast cancer nurses to support people experiencing breast cancer in Australia. 

So far, the McGrath Foundation has 

  • Funded 177 McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia
  • Supported 100,000 families since 2005
  • Completed 253,422 hours of McGrath Breast Care nursing for individuals and their families in the last year

Breast cancer patients often require specialist care, which is why every McGrath Breast Cancer Nurse is trained in the McGrath Model of Care, an evidence-based program which supports breast cancer patients and their families.

All of Androgogic’s products and services are provided to the McGrath Foundation either at no cost, or at a discounted rate in order to help them achieve their mission in Australia.

In 2021, the McGrath Foundation and Androgogic won two LearnX awards for Best Blended Learning Model and Best Content Curation Project. These awards truly recognise the amazing work the McGrath Foundation has done in providing the best learning and development to their nurses.
