Updates planned to Statutory and Mandatory e-learning programme

Posted on: September 25th, 2018 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

In 2017, Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) launched a series of e-learning sessions and assessments called Statutory and Mandatory Training, which was based on learning outcomes outlined in the Skills for Health Core Skills Training Framework.

In response to user feedback, HEE e-LfH is re-designing the e-learning sessions and eAssessments to be combined into a single package to enable users to easily access both the knowledge content and e-Assessment in one session.  As part of this update to the Statutory and Mandatory Training programme, HEE e-LfH is also updating the Data Security Awareness Level 1 session and eAssessment to include General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and social care updates.

The new programme will be made available from mid-October 2018.

If you are part way through completing these programmes, please be aware that the previous courses will remain accessible within an archive folder until 31 March 2019,   enabling users and local administrators to access historic certificates and report on learning history.

If you have any questions about the changes to this programme, please contact HEE e-LfH.

Care Certificate e-Learning programme launches Scenario Sessions

Posted on: September 12th, 2018 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has launched five scenario sessions to support the application of the Care Certificate Standards.

The scenarios take place in a range of health and social care settings and include:

  • Primary care
  • Acute care
  • Community/home care
  • End-of-life care
  • Mental health care

The sessions have been written by practitioners working within these specific care settings and are based on the typical duties that a Care Certificate student is asked to perform. The scenarios complement the existing Care Certificate e-Learning programme knowledge-based sessions and provide students with the opportunity to apply the standards within a setting similar to their own, as well as to see how the standards are applied in other care environments.

Kay Fawcett, Clinical Lead for the Care Certificate e-Learning programme, said: “These scenarios have been completed following requests to support more specific application of the Care Certificate for care settings.

“Basing the scenarios in recognisable care environments will support the application of the standards of the Care Certificate across a wide variety of settings”.

The scenarios are available now on the e-LfH Hub and as AICC links for Trusts, to access them visit: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/care-certificate/. They will be available via the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) in September 2018.

Learners that complete the scenarios are invited to provide their feedback via an online questionnaire: https://healtheducationyh.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/care-certificate-e-learning-programme-scenarios. The survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete and the findings will be used to shape the scenarios to ensure they best meet learners’ needs.

Final module added to Literature Searching e-learning programme

Posted on: September 11th, 2018 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked with librarians at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust to launch the final module within its Literature Searching e-learning programme.

The Literature Searching programme aims to support health and social care professionals find evidence for their work and study.

Module 7, How to Search the Healthcare Databases, aims to pull together the learning from earlier modules within the programme and apply the skills learnt here to use the Healthcare Databases Advanced Search , which is provided through a partnership between HEE and NICE.

This final module can also be used in its own right by people who are familiar with literature searching but would like to try searching the Healthcare Databases for the first time or need to refresh their skills. Module 7 is accessible without having completed the earlier modules.

The resource is a mix of explanatory material, video demonstrations and opportunities to ‘check understanding’ via practice search screens.

To access the e-learning visit: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/literature-searching/ . It will be available on ESR shortly.
