Making the Most of e-ELCA

Posted on: November 26th, 2015 by Frankie No Comments

The ‘One Chance to Get it Right’ report, produced by the Leadership Alliance for the Care of Dying People in June 2014, set out the approach to caring for dying people in the last few days and hours of life identifying five Priorities for Care. The report also made recommendations on the desired characteristics of education and training programmes. One of the Health Education England (HEE) commitments in the One Chance to Get it Right document was to conduct research into the development and evaluation of education and training methods and programmes which addressed uncertainty and communication when caring for the dying.

The End of Life Care for All elearning programme (e-ELCA) has been recommended as part of a blended learning approach by the ‘Training and Education in End of Life Care‘ report, commissioned by HEE to review the efficacy of existing education and training resources on end of life care.

Why not take a look at the new ‘Making the most of e-ELCA’ guide? It is simple and concise, designed to provide a brief overview of factors that can help organisations maximise the effectiveness and value of using e-ELCA.
