e-Learning for Healthcare sessions in Foundation: Professional Capability: 19 Makes patient safety a priority in clinical practice

Posted on: November 8th, 2018 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

elearning for healthcare sessions in Foundation: Professional Capability: 19 Makes patient safety a priority in clinical practice

Foundation specific elearning is developed by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, in partnership with Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and is approved by UKFPO.

The drive for quality in the NHS has patient safety at its heart. The elearning sessions in ‘Professional Capability: 19 Makes patient safety a priority in clinical practice’ concentrate on safe practice and what to do when things go wrong.

It begins with an interactive case study where learners diagnose and treat a patient, then evaluate the management plan. Moving on, learners examine safe personal working practices when treating patients. The session also looks at the management of febrile illnesses, infection control and disease notification. The focus then shifts to the importance of maintaining the learners’ own health, both physical and mental.

Finally, the sessions look at the building blocks that support quality and safety in the NHS, including how to raise concerns about patient safety, team working, clinical governance, patient outcome and experience.

  • Senior Advice: When to Stop for Help
  • Infection Control: Diarrhoea in an Inpatient
  • An Underperforming Colleague – What To Do
  • Clinical Governance
  • Safe Practice the Doctors Perspective
  • Infection Control: Air and Blood Borne Pathogens

Perinatal Mental Health Competency Framework

Posted on: November 8th, 2018 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England (HEE) has worked with the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust to develop a skills based competency framework for all staff working to support mothers and families across the perinatal care pathway, from preconception to postnatal care.

The framework is designed to increase awareness of perinatal mental health disorders and associated care skills while supporting advanced and specialist practice. Competencies are the skills, knowledge and behaviours that deliver high quality care and enable the continuous improvement of services. The framework has been developed to standardise competencies for perinatal mental health practice across England, thus helping to ensure the workforce is confident and suitably skilled to identify need and deliver care to women who have mental health problems during the perinatal period. This will thereby increase access to appropriate evidence-based specialist treatment.

This framework lists several competencies over separate domains and is divided into categories for different types of healthcare worker; including those who have limited or infrequent contact as well as those who work in specialist perinatal services. Over time, this competency framework may be used for recruitment, training and development, and discussions about career progression.
