The Paediatric Surgery project is a collaborative project involving the British Association of Paediatric Surgeons (BAPS) and HEE e-Learning for Healthcare.
Improving the provision of services for the General Paediatric Surgery of Childhood is a Government priority. The project aims to achieve genuine improvement in patient care as well as reduced Health Service costs through better targeted referrals and more local care nearer patients’ homes.
The Paediatric Surgery curriculum has three modules of e-learning designed to support GPs, Paediatricians, Neonatal Nurses, Adult Surgeons operating on children in District General Hospitals and all core surgical trainees who see children. Over 30 sessions of e-learning, in total approximately 20 hours of online training, will be available.
