The NSW Health Learning Management System HETI Online recorded 1,533,617 course completions in 2014-15 across the state. HETI Online made a significant impact in ensuring that standardised high quality training was available anytime, anywhere to all NSW Health staff. During the year HETI responded to LHD/SHN identified training priorities by producing 82 training modules covering a range of clinical and non-clinical topics.

HETI’s NSW Health Leadership Program won an award for ‘significant contribution to innovation in Australia’ at the 6th Annual Lawrence Hargrave Awards. This program was implemented in 13 hospitals across NSW.

During the year HETI worked closely with the NSW Institute of Psychiatry (NSWIOP) to support the work required of transitioning to HETI.

In November 2014, HETI hosted ANZMET, the Australian and New Zealand Medical Education and Training Forum. The event attracted over 480 participants from across Australia and New Zealand and featured 171 speakers and presenters.
