The training team are responsible for the preparation and delivery of training on the Trust's Clinical Systems which include – Rio, EPMA and IAPTUS. We also have E-Learning available if you would like to improve your computer skills; such as; Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Our aim is to provide a first class training service which fully supports the Informatics Training Strategy, to design and deliver training courses that meet the needs of the Trust and to develop the computer skills of staff and support end users in the use of the Trust’s clinical systemsWe can provide you with information on training courses for the Trust Clinical system, all relevant documentation and we can support you after training.

Due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, the Systems Training Team are currently only offering remote training using MS Teams and Zoom.

Please note: Staff who book on to the remote Rio, IAPTuS or EPMA training will need access to a laptop or desktop computer with speakers and microphone to allow them to communicate with the trainer.

The Electronic Staff Record (ESR) is no longer used for booking staff on EPMA and Rio training; we now have a seperate booking system on SharePoint for both NWBH and Mersey Care staff. Below is a guidance video and link to the booking site:
