eLearning for Long-Term Care Sales

Prepare your sales team to position your products in the LTC channel.

Long-term care has its own set of regulations, patient demographics, providers, influencers and gatekeepers. Skye Multimedia’s Long-Term Care eLearning will guide your sales team through the challenges – and help them focus their strategies on opportunities in this unique market.

Developed in consultation with Pharmacare Strategies Inc., specialists in training pharmaceutical salespeople to sell into specialty channels, our Long-Term Care eLearning program consists of four modules covering providers and users, regulation, key decision makers, and reimbursement processes.

You have the option of working with our team – including PhD-level specialists, as well as educators and digital media artists and writers – to expand and customize the course for your company, your products and, especially, your people.
