About Us

About OCB Media

OCB Media was formed in 1996 at the University of Leicester Medical School to develop medical e-learning materials. The company was successfully spun-out of the university and incorporated in 2002, retaining its centre of academic educational personnel and processes.

OCB Media has a central philosophy that underpins all its work:

• to help academics, clinicians and industry develop high quality medical e-learning materials
• to ensure that all developments are supported by an underlying evidence base
• to evaluate e-learning outputs where possible to assess effectiveness and impact on practice.

Proven track record as trusted partners

OCB Media has been partnered with many respected organisations to develop a wide range of training materials, including the Royal College of Paediatrics, RCGP, RCP, Royal College of Nursing, CEM, East Midlands Healthcare Workforce Deanery, the Severn Institute, West Midlands Deanery and the Wales Deanery.

Projects with academia include work with the Open University, the University of Leicester, the Leicester Medical School, University of Warwick, Tokyo Medical University, the University of Birmingham and Aston University.

OCB Media also works with a number of Department of Health/NHS departments, including the National Patient Safety Agency, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, Connecting for Health, e-Learning for Healthcare, Training for Innovation and NICE.

The clients that OCB Media work with in the pharmaceutical industry are equally impressive, with a portfolio that includes GlaxoSmithKline, Chiesi, Boehringer-Ingelheim, Astra Zeneca, Baxter Healthcare, Sanofi-Aventis, Linde Gas Therapeutics, Servier and Shire Pharmaceuticals.

Unrivalled experience

As a result of long collaboration with academia, the NHS and the commercial sector, OCB Media has developed a unique organisational structure which complements both the needs of the project and our partners. The focusing on ‘units of excellence’ within the company structure allows the individual components of any e-learning project to be developed by dedicated personnel, highly skilled in their individual areas. As such, the competency, competitiveness and quality of individual units can be assessed and modified to the needs of individual projects.

Each unit has direct responsibility for the elements of any project it works on. Such an organisational structure reduces the overall time and cost taken to develop projects, as units can often work in parallel in development. Equally, each unit can be quality assured and assessed throughout all stages of project development.

Award winning

OCB Media has won seven national awards for the quality of its medical e-learning materials, including three from the British Medical Association.
