Induction by iPod


Two Scottish hospitals have become the first organisations in the UK to use Podcasting to train new staff.

The Voicemap training system is being used at Glasgow Royal Infirmary and the Princess Royal Maternity Hospital to deliver audio inductions comprising a customised tour of the workplace and identification of particular safety issues.

"Using technology - the iPod - means we can make sure all new staff are trained to exactly the same standard, and it's inevitable that that's a big improvement on a system that relies on other staff and can therefore be vulnerable to human error," said Alastair Kirk, NHS Greater Glasgow's training and development manager.

"What is fantastic is that, as well as working to the same standards, it can also be 'personalised' to each department."
