City University London

Case study: City University London use online e-learning product to translate skills education into effective clinical practice

“At City we fully advocate blended learning approach to education as it supports the important interaction amongst people that is fundamental to care and teaching. An e-learning platform like Elsevier Clinical Skills allows instructors to really get to know their students’ behaviour and progress, allowing them to decide when, where and how to teach the curriculum according to needs”    

Julie Attenborough, Associate Dean for Education Innovation and Technology


”The ability to refresh your skill base before each placement is invaluable especially when working on a busy ward”

“As a visual learner, the videos helped me link the theory to practice”

“Very interactive and well thought out”

City University London students



University of Southampton

“Response to Elsevier Clinical Skills has been overwhelmingly positive and has now become integral to our teaching programme. Not only does it represent the missing link between theory and practice – supporting our students on clinical placement – but I believe it also has an important role to play in creating consistency in education across healthcare environments. The flexible and customisable nature of the product means we already use it to support paramedics trainees and would fully advocate Trust adoption within acute and community settings.”

Waterford Institute of Technology

“We had been looking for a video based product that was comprehensive in the number of evidence based clinical skills and followed a format similar to our own skills teaching templates. I cannot recommend Elsevier Clinical Skills highly enough. The product has met all of our needs, helping to standardize the teaching of clinical skills across the various disciplines and ensuring the level of consistency that we were looking for. So far the feedback from both staff and students has been excellent, with the product being easy to use, offering high quality multi-media content and invaluable management tools.”
