In order to access any e-LfH programme, you will need an e-LfH account. If you do not have one, then you can register by selecting the ‘Register’ button in the top right hand corner of the page.
If you already have an account with e-LfH, then you can enrol on to the Improving Mouth Care programme by logging in to the e-LfH Hub, selecting My Account > Enrolment and selecting the programme. You can then access the programme immediately in the My e-Learning section.
Care home or hospice staff
To register for the Improving Mouth Care programme, select the ‘Register’ button in the top right hand corner of the page. Select the option 'I am a care home or hospice worker' then enter your care home / hospice name or postcode and select it from the options available in the drop down list. Finally enter your care home / hospice registration code and select 'Register'. You may need to see your employer to get this code.
If your employer does not have a code, then they need to contact the e-LfH Support Team. The Support Team can either give the employer the registration code or arrange a bulk upload of all staff.
Social care professionals
Access to e-LfH content is available to all social care professionals in England whose employers are registered with the Skills for Care National Minimum Data Set for Social Care (NMDS-SC). Every employer providing NMDS-SC workforce information to Skills for Care has been given a user registration code for their staff. This code enables you to self-register for access to Improving Mouth Care. Please contact your employer for more details about the registration code. For information about registering your organisation with the NMDS-SC your employer should access www.nmds-sc-online.org.uk or contact the Skills for Care Support Service on 0845 8730129.
