The Learning Management System

Suncoast Hospice Institute offers a way for organizations to enjoy all the features of an award-winning Learning Management System (LMS) without the start-up expense, technical resources (IT and course instructional design and development) and time it takes to develop and implement on your own.  The LMS comes with a course library covering hospice and palliative care, computer software, leadership and business as well as a resource library.

The standard LMS subscription package comes with unlimited access to all courses and all newly-developed courses. Call us toll free: (877) 523-4144 for more information or email Customer Service to request access to the LMS demonstration site.

The feature-rich Learning Management System includes:

  • 24/7 access to self-paced, engaging interactive instruction
  • Accommodation of instructor-led training and management of enrollments (wait lists, class rosters, class size)
  • Customizable corporate branding
  • Track employee/volunteer training and compliance progress and transcripts
  • Training can be ‘pushed’ out to users
  • Real-time reports – run more than 100 canned and ad hoc reports, even at the supervisor/team manager level

The Learning Management System also includes hospice and palliative care courses:

  • Provides media-rich courses with post tests and contact hours
  • Incorporates the knowledge gained from more than a quarter-century of hospice leadership
  • Allows staff and volunteers to take as many courses as they like, as frequently as needed to promote retention, remedial learning and self-learning
