From this experience base, we have learned the characteristics of successful health projects and in particular the learning styles of the health workforce – typically both more motivated and analytical than average but more time poor and fragmented in their available professional development time.  By putting our learner first and respecting their specific needs we have seen consistently better outcomes in this area.
