STAR is a high quality web-based system designed to provide training and produce evidence of its uptake in relation to specific groups of senior medical staff.

STAR logo

STAR offers a range of bespoke training content specifically designed for the senior medical audience, which often incorporates video and video-based animation. This includes training to support faculty development and key generic learning, e.g. in DNACPR.

The system tailors delivery of content to the profile of users and also provides a reporting system demonstrating participation through the provision of certificates and board-based reports.

STAR was created by and is maintained by NHS Lanarkshire on behalf of NHS Education for Scotland.

All trained doctors in Scotland are able to have access to STAR and its modules. Local Board-based contacts are available to facilitate individual user registration. A list of these is available on the STAR website. For information about the development of modules or access from outside of Scotland, please view the demo website or contact
