HealthCareCAN and Leading Edge Group are delighted to announce an expanded strategic partnership that provides a wide range of education and training offerings that support the learning needs for healthcare professionals in the areas of quality improvement, change, leadership and management.
Equipped with this learning, healthcare professionals will have greater capacity to effect real and meaningful change and improvement with benefits that can include improved patient access to key services; decreased patient wait times; increased satisfaction; and cost savings/avoidance.
CHA Learning, the professional development division of HealthCareCAN, is a national leader in the delivery of online education to those working in healthcare and has been a trusted learning provider to health professionals since 1951. It has made significant investments in recent years to expand its suite of essential and relevant education for those in healthcare.
CHA Learning’s mandate is to develop ‘people’ capacity within the health system. It is critical to our ability to serve our healthcare members that we establish strong partnerships with other innovators and leaders in the area of professional development. Healthcare doesn’t need more people inventing the same wheels. They need us assembling these wheels and lining them up to move everyone forward as effectively as possible. That is our value to our members.
