The Educator Hub

Posted on: April 18th, 2017 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England’s (HEE) Educator Hub is a new elearning resource aimed at educators and supervisors of doctors, nurses, midwives, dentists, pharmacists, allied health professionals and healthcare scientists and it is now live.

The content, which is hosted on the HEE elearning for healthcare (elfh) Hub, includes both academic and video-based practical modules, such as supervision, feedback, workplace based assessments and Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP). These have been migrated from HEE Kent, Surrey, Sussex’s e-Training for Trainers (etft) platform together with London’s Multi-professional Faculty Development modules. Complementary content from other regions will also be included to produce a national resource.

Modules are linked to the new ‘Professional Development Framework for Educators’ which is being adopted in London and South East in the first instance. The framework domains map to professional regulatory standards for education and training including HEE’s Quality Framework standards and are applicable to all educators working in clinical practice and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) as guidance for best practice.

Professor Elizabeth Hughes, Dean and Director of Education, HEE, London and South East said: “The Educator Hub elearning modules support the professional development of educators. They include formative and summative assessments followed by certification allowing the educator to demonstrate their learning”.

Updated and refreshed statutory and mandatory e-learning

Posted on: April 12th, 2017 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England (HEE) has updated and refreshed the elearning training sessions for the ten core statutory and mandatory topics as defined in the UK Core Skills Training Framework for the health and social care workforce.

The elearning sessions, which can be accessed free of charge via HEE’s elearning for healthcare (elfh) hub and via the Electronic Staff Record (ESR), have been updated with content provided by subject matter experts across the ten topics which include:

  • Conflict Resolution (L1)
  • Equality, Diversity and Human Rights (L1)
  • Fire Safety (L1)
  • Health, Safety and Welfare (L1)
  • Infection Prevention and Control (L1)
  • Moving and Handling (L1)
  • Preventing Radicalisation (L1)
  • Resuscitation (L1)
  • The elearning sessions on Safeguarding Children, Safeguarding Adults, Information Governance and level 2 sessions will be updated and available by end of June 2017.The existing elearning sessions for these topics will remain available on the elfh hub and ESR for staff to access.

Alan Ryan, Director of National Programmes, HEE said: “The updated suite of core statutory and mandatory elearning sessions will ensure consistency in quality and the definition and delivery of such training. This will also make the completion of statutory and mandatory training more efficient thanks to the centralised approach for both learners and trainers, especially as the elearning is available to the whole health and social care workforce, including students on placement.”

In addition to including updated content the sessions also have more graphically rich and engaging content as the programme has been redeveloped using a new authoring tool, Adapt, which allows greater interactivity to reinforce learning.

The short and high-impact sessions have been developed to allow learners to complete the training and then progress to the assessment. There is also the option for learners to proceed straight to the assessment without completing the training, if they are confident in the subject area.

NHS Screening Programmes e-learning launched

Posted on: April 4th, 2017 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England has worked in partnership with Public Health England to transfer the NHS Screening Programmes’ elearning modules on to the elearning for healthcare (elfh) online platform.

There are 11 NHS Screening Programmes in England. These programmes are commissioned and managed based on the recommendations provided by UK National Screening Committee.

Screening is a way of identifying people who are at higher risk of a health problem, so that treatment can be offered or information given to help them make personalised informed decisions about their care.

Healthcare professionals use elearning as part of their training and continuing professional development and the new platform allows them to have all their NHS elearning training in one place.

The elearning, which was previously available on the CPD Screening website, is regularly updated to reflect national standards.

This elearning offers comprehensive training for healthcare professionals who offer screening to:

* pregnant women
* newborn babies
* adults (abdominal aortic aneurysm).

It does not currently include elearning for Cancer Screening or Diabetic Eye Screening, but will in future.

Access the elearning modules on the elearning for healthcare website.
