OUR MISSION

Improving the lives of patients

At Learn It Online, we recognise the importance of continuing professional development (CPD) and the crucial role it plays in enhancing patient care. All too often, online education can be unengaging, irrelevant and too far removed from the lived experience of patients and those caring for them. Our holistic approach to both the course design, build and delivery draws on the vision and skills of a select, hand-picked team of experts from a variety of backgrounds. This approach enables us to create courses that are well-rounded, patient-centred whilst ultimately meeting the required learning outcomes.

Vasileios Voulgaropoulos

Independent Clinical Reviewer

My name is Vasileios Voulgaropoulos and I am a senior Clinical Pharmacist for Mental Health. I am genuinely passionate about debunking the stigma surrounding mental disorders, while improving healthcare outcomes which naturally reflect on the patients’ experience.

Everlearning is the core of my practice and I wholeheartedly believe it constitutes a pivotal element for both own’s professional development and improvement of the healthcare services. This thirst for knowledge has driven me through the successful completion of an MSc in Clinical Neuroscience while working full-time. Currently, I have a strong desire to share my knowledge/experience with colleagues or other professionals to support their learning journey. I plan my next steps envisioning a future career where I would be more involved in academia and research.
