Ausmed Education

Ausmed Education is an Australian healthcare education provider. Founded in 1987 by a registered nurse, we exist to serve the belief that the health and lives of all people can be improved through the provision of high-quality healthcare education.

Ausmed focuses on enabling health professionals to learn in more effective and meaningful ways so that it improves care.

Regularly reviewed healthcare education and information

The Ausmed online learning platform contains a library of regularly updated healthcare education and information. Our content strives to set and maintain the highest educational standards across all their learning activities.

Ausmed educational design is built on some core principles:

  1. The educational need of our learning activities must be validated by a professional practice gap in knowledge, skill or practice, or opportunity to strengthen practice.
  2. The content of our educational activities is developed and regularly reviewed based on the best available, current evidence to foster the achievement of desired learning outcomes.
  3. Strategies to promote the transfer of learning and actively engage learners are incorporated into our educational activities and their format of delivery.
  4. Learning activities are designed and written by qualified healthcare professionals and are reviewed by the Ausmed Editorial Team prior to publishing.

Our online learning platform is entirely free from any external commercial biases or conflicts of interest and third-party advertising.
