An innovative and sustainable approach to clinical e-learning is described. The approach is based on a national federation to provide funding, clinical and educational expertise, IT solutions and program oversight; to develop, curate and champion a resource with multiple courses for healthcare professionals. The approach has resulted in formal recognition by nearly all Australian healthcare organizations and a high course completion rate by individuals. Crucially the approach has succeeded in increasing learner motivation to complete the course and delivered unexpected benefits in process and cost efficiency.
