Welcome to the Department of Health - Electronic Learning Management System (ELMS)

Dr David Russell-Weisz

On this site you will find online courses on a variety of important topics. The online system was chosen as it is easy to access, cost effective and training can be fitted around work commitments. You can complete the courses in one session or in stages. The system remembers your progress so you can start where you left off.

Current courses on offer include:

Accountable and Ethical Decision Making - This course was developed to support you in making accountable and ethical decisions by improving awareness and understanding of public sector accountability requirements. This course content is considered to be mandatory for all staff. Contact aedm_support@health.wa.gov.au with any enquiries on this course.

Disaster Management Training - This course was developed to introduce users to emergency management principles and arrangements within a health context. It is aimed at staff from within Health and other emergency response organisations who would like to develop their awareness of the health aspects of emergency management. This course is not mandatory but recommended for anyone who may have a role in preparing their health service for a mass casualty incident and/or those who wish to pursue further disaster preparedness education and training courses. Contact dpmutraining@health.wa.gov.au with any enquiries on this course.

Recordkeeping Awareness Training - The online Recordkeeping Awareness course will inform you about good recordkeeping practices and explain your responsibilities in managing records under the State Records Act 2000. The course material includes interactive activities and opportunities to test your knowledge before completing a short online assessment. Recordkeeping is an important part of most work activities, so this course is considered mandatory for all staff.
