Accountable to the Scottish Government, NSS - a Non-Departmental Public Body which works at the heart of the health service, providing national strategic support services and expert advice to NHS Scotland - carried out a competitive tender process and eCom won the tender to produce these learning materials.
"Ensuring they met all of the CEN Network requirements, along with ensuring compliance with the current accessibility legislation for eLearning content, the modules have been designed to have an intuitive user interface - to instil confidence in using the modules to learners with widely varying levels of IT skills," said Wendy Edie, eCom's Managing Director.
"The CEN Network wanted the modules to encourage learners to reflect on their personal attitudes, beliefs and work practices," explained Wendy Edie. "In addition, it wanted the modules to get learners to reflect on how they interact with children and young people who have communication issues, along with their families – especially those children who're in need of greater coordinated care."
This is one of many projects that eCom has carried out successfully for NHS Scotland. For further details of this project, visit https://www.ecomscotland.com/
