How to use Bettercare learning programmes

We provide the learning programme, you run the course. A learning programme is the curriculum and study material you need to run a course, all in one book. Whether you lead a study group or manage formal training, our learning programmes make your job simpler and easier.

Bettercare learning programmes have helped thousands of nurses, midwives, doctors and students increase their knowledge, boost their confidence, and improve patient care. You can implement Bettercare learning programmes in your institution right now.

Learn with Bettercare: Step 1: Get the book1. Select a learning programme

Each participant should have access to the learning programme material:

The Bettercare Learning Station is a simple website that can be used on tablets, computers or phones. It can also be set up as a dedicated touchscreen Learning Station in your institution. Contact us for details and pricing.

Learn with Bettercare: Step 2: Study in a group2. Set up study groups

Bettercare learning programmes work best when participants form study groups, so that they motivate and learn from each other.

Every study group should have a facilitator, who takes responsibility for organising the group. Anyone can be a facilitator, they don’t need to be an expert. They should read our facilitator’s guide.

We provide free facilitator’s guides with orders of 5 books or more.

Learn with Bettercare: Step 3: Test your knowledge3. Test and track learning

Self-evaluation is the most important part of learning. For every chapter, participants take a short self-test before and after studying each chapter. This way participants can see their knowledge improve, and can address specific weaknesses.

Tests are included in our printed books and ebooks, and participants can take them for free on our Learning Station for instant results.

Learn with Bettercare: Step 4: Get a certificate to show how much you've learned4. Certificates of completion

Participants that complete a Bettercare exam and score 80% or more are entitled to a certificate. You set up, run and mark your own group exam. Read our guidelines here.
