Experts in dementia studies from the University of Bradford have modernised Health Education England’s online dementia courses – ensuring the perspective and experience of people living with dementia and their family members is central to the learning.

The programme offers a range of research and best practice from the UK and internationally to ensure excellence in person-centred dementia care. It addresses the Prime Minister’s Challenge on dementia by ensuring a compassionate, coordinated and person-centred approach to dementia care from diagnosis to end of life.

The sessions offer a rich learning experience through use of high-quality videos of personal experiences, interactive quizzes and opportunities for self-reflection.

Professor Murna Downs, Chair in Dementia Studies at the University of Bradford, said: “We are proud to play our part in directly addressing the prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia 2020 by supporting all those who care for people living with dementia and their family members, from diagnosis through to end of life”.

Priorities for Care of the Dying Person: End of Life Care (e-ELCA)

Posted on: October 14th, 2015 by Frankie No Comments

The care of people that are dying and support for their families is something that almost all health and social care staff contribute to, consider of great importance in their role and can get great satisfaction from. e-ELCA is a key resource for the development of staff to provide competent, compassionate and dignified care for patients at the end of life and support for their families.

The sessions in e-ELCA have been mapped to the learning objectives of the ‘One Chance to Get it Right’ report of the Leadership Alliance for Care of the Dying Person in 2014. A new training needs analysis session will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and direct you to e-ELCA sessions to support your development.

Also, core and additional e-ELCA sessions for specific staff groups have been defined for:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Allied health professionals
  • Social care managers
  • Social care workers
  • Healthcare managers
  • Healthcare administrators

Visitor and Migrant NHS Cost Recovery Programme

Posted on: October 13th, 2015 by Frankie No Comments

A series of elearning modules and introductory video have been developed by E-learning for Healthcare (elfh), working with the Visitor and Migrant NHS Cost Recovery Programme at the Department of Health. The elearning package is designed to support NHS organisations in their implementation of the Visitor and Migrant NHS Cost Recovery Programme following changes to the Overseas Visitor Charging Regulations in April 2015.  The elearning is not intended as a substitute for the guidance to these regulations but to support understanding of the rules.

The Cost Recovery Programme was set up in July 2014 to improve the systems for charging overseas visitors and migrant for their NHS healthcare in England. The programme aims to support and reinforce the principle of fairness by ensuring that everyone who can should contribute to the cost of the NHS without undermining the principle that the NHS is free at the point of delivery for residents.

The E-learning modules have been tailored to specific roles including Overseas Visitor Managers (OVMs), frontline administrative staff and clinicians.

A video “A guide for clinicians: cost recovery and working with Overseas Visitor Managers (OVMs)” has also been developed with the help of clinicians and OVMs.

The online training sessions enhance traditional learning, support existing teaching methods and provide a valuable reference point. They are designed and built to be engaging and interactive, using quality images, video, audio and animation to help trainees learn and retain knowledge. Content is presented using various templates such as ‘real-life’ scenarios, case studies and ‘knowledge bites’.
