The trends in these figures would suggest a healthy response to promotional efforts and a realisation in these uncertain times of the value and opportunity offered by on line learning. To date a higher level of engagement is evident among clinical staff for clinical courses that are relevant to the current need.  These courses also have associated with them clear operational links in response to service needs and are heavily promoted by the services or departments that have commissioned and funded them.
