Background\ud Doctors in training rotate round different organisations, sometimes for short periods of times. Face to face induction and requirements for statutory and mandatory training can be very time-consuming, Streamlining these processes has potential to increase the amount of times junior doctors can spend on direct patient care, particularly important at the key times when new cohorts of doctors start work.\ud \ud Summary of work\ud In 2012, the hospital in Bath developed an on line e-induction package that also met all the requirements for statutory and mandatory training, which was completed by junior doctors prior to starting work in the hospital. The package was based on interactive patient scenarios, with in built assessment. In 2015, the e-induction package was implemented in 17 hospitals., \ud \ud Summary of results\ud Early evaluation demonstrated that 87% of doctors completed the induction prior to and 90% within one month of starting work. Compliance levels with statutory and mandatory training reached 100% within 2 months of starting. There was a reduction in face of face induction time of 90 mins, resulting in an estimated additional 216 hours of availability of junior doctors hours on the first day of work. In 2015, 1244 trainee doctors and 219 non training grade doctors completed the e-induction programme with positive feedback.\ud \ud Discussion\ud When originally developed, the e-induction package was designed to meet Statutory and Mandatory Learning needs. However, in 2015 it was implemented solely as an e-induction package. Work is now underway to develop the package to meet Statutory and Mandatory Training Requirements. This will allow the development of a passport arrangement, whereby training undertaken in one hospital will be recognized in another. \ud \ud Conclusions\ud Induction and statutory and mandatory training requirements for junior doctors who rotate through many different hospitals can take up a disproportionate amount of time and remove them from clinical care.\ud An innovative interactive e-induction package can reduce face to face induction time and increase the amount of time doctors can provide clinical duties.
