Healthy Child Programme

Posted on: September 29th, 2016 by Frankie No Comments

We are delighted to announce that the oral health promotion session of the Healthy Child Programme (HCP) on Health Education England’s elearning for Healthcare platform has been updated with new content and video. The resource is aimed at the early years workforce including health visitors, nurses and the child health team working with pregnancy and the first five years of life. The interactive oral health session aims to enhance the knowledge and skills regarding oral health and the factors that predispose to poor oral health. Promoting oral health in the infant and young child forms an integral part of this session.

The session, entitled ‘Dental Health Promotion’, was originally developed by RCPCH and Health Education England’s elearning for Healthcare programme as part of the Healthy Child Programme (HCP). The update to the session was commissioned by Public Health England and a working group which included oral health, public health and health professionals was set up to review the current content and update it to reflect the most recent evidence base Delivering better oral health (PHE, 2014) and provide a public health and preventive focus. A video to support the tooth brushing is also available within the elearning resource which focuses on a health visitor giving key oral health messages and how to establish and maintain tooth brushing to the parents of babies and young children.

Business Continuity

Posted on: September 19th, 2016 by Frankie No Comments

A new elearning resource has been developed to provide learners with an introduction to Business Continuity.

Business Continuity is often described as ‘just common sense’. It is about taking responsibility for the organisational business and enabling it to remain on course whatever the situation.

Business Continuity is about building and improving organisational resilience, it’s about identifying our key services and the most urgent activities that underpin them.

This short elearning course covers what Business Continuity is, what action you should take in the event of an incident, case studies and more.
