New interactive online learning tool for clinical waste management

Initial Medical has launched a new online learning tool to help support healthcare organisations in keeping their employees fully up-to-date with best practice and the latest legal requirements for the handling and disposal of clinical waste.

myLearning is an interactive e-learning portal which is fully accessible on any device, providing learning on the go and 24/7. Each myLearning course is split into easy-to-digest modules, and is interactive, using facts, infographics and videos to educate the user in an engaging way. Personalised, downloadable certificates at the end of each module provide evidence of learning and assessment success. Each myLearning module is also CPD accredited, providing professional recognition of course completion.

The Initial Medical online learning platform includes modules on the key areas which all healthcare companies producing clinical waste, need to understand and follow, including:

  • Documentation
  • Duty of care
  • Sharps injuries
  • Waste Management

Rebecca Allen, Category Manager, Initial Medical, comments: “We’re incredibly excited about myLearning as it offers our healthcare care professionals easy access to all of the information they need to be kept fully up-to-date, so as legislation changes, so do the relevant references within the training courses. This online learning portal has been developed in direct response to customer demand for ongoing training.

“Clinical waste management is not something that can simply be managed from the top down. It relies on frontline workers knowing how to segregate their waste properly at the point of disposal and ‘Waste Segregation’ is just one of the modules currently available.”

The online learning portal is suitable for anyone working within a healthcare environment who is required to handle and dispose of clinical waste, for example those working in nursing homes, care homes, beauty clinics, aesthetic clinics, funeral parlours and GP surgeries.
