About the project
The learning programmes offered by Bettercare started with two titles and has since grown to 20 titles all addressing critical healthcare issues. Bettercare’s learning programmes are used across the healthcare field. Provincial governments have a couple of titles as prerequisites for advanced midwifery. Medical schools and nursing colleges prescribe the learning programmes as part of their curriculum. Private and public hospitals use the learning programmes to train and ups kill their staff members. Private hospitals use the completion of the learning programmes as continuous development points. Overall, the learning programmes are held in high regard. In keeping with the aim of making knowledge accessible, the programmes are written in language that is clear without losing the technical aspect.
Problem: Lack of affordable, high quality, accurate medical learning programmes.
The learning programmes are flexible and mobile. They can be structured to suit the individual or organisations needs. Bettercare even provide a book to guide facilitators. It is mobile because you can do the course on your phone or tablet. Alternatively, if you buy the book you can do the course offline. This allows qualified healthcare professionals to study at their own pace and without having to attend expensive conferences or sessions. In short, Bettercare equips and empowers healthcare professionals to manage their resources optimally, regardless of their geographical location or facility resources. A large percentage of the titles address issues at the primary healthcare level with the limited resources in mind.
