Gold for e-LfH

elfh scoops the Gold Award for the ‘Best elearning project – public sector’ at the 2014 elearning Age awards. The judges “were particularly impressed by the consistent approach to stakeholder engagement, the options for scaling, the variety of learning interventions, and the focus on evaluating the impact on behaviour and marketing. The programme meets different learning styles and abilities for a workforce that requires just-in-time learning and has limited flexibility to train without affecting 24/7 care. Working with thousands of clinical subject matter experts and myriad stakeholders, elfh is now recognised throughout the world for its vision, scope and skills, and its achievements in transforming UK healthcare training and patient care.”

elfh is a NHS England programme in partnership with the NHS and professional bodies
