Posted on: April 10th, 2019 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has been working with the University of Bradford to review, add new content and update sessions within the e-Dementia elearning Programme.

The programme about dementia care has been designed to enhance the training and education of the health and care workforce. It focuses on the essential knowledge and skills needed to support and enable people living with dementia and their family carers to live as well as possible, wherever they live.

e-Dementia will also be of interest to those responsible for training and educating the health and care workforce. It can be used in a variety of ways including as part of induction; to structure reflective practice with individual staff and teams; for self-paced learning; and to revisit as a form of refresher training.

As part of the e-Dementia update, 14 new sessions have been added and 12 sessions have been retired from the programme.

New sessions added:

Module 1 Dementia awareness

  • Person-centred dementia care

  • Dementia risk reduction and prevention
  • Communication, interaction and behaviour in dementia care
  • Health and wellbeing in dementia care

Place of Birth e-learning programme now live

Posted on: April 10th, 2019 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare has worked with Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, the University of Birmingham, the National Institute of Healthcare Research (NIHR) and the Royal College of Midwives, to develop an elearning programme that focuses on the different place of birth options for healthy, pregnant women who are at low risk of complications.

The programme consists of two elearning sessions to support discussions with healthy, low-risk women about the safety, intervention and transfer rates for the different options for place of birth.

‘Discussing Place of Birth Options with Healthy Low-risk Women’, and ‘Becoming a Place of Birth Lead’ are elearning sessions developed by midwives, for midwives, to support women in their birth place decisions. They are also suitable for others working with pregnant women, such as obstetricians, midwifery support workers and GPs.

The first session aims to ensure that midwives (and other professionals) have the essential knowledge about safety, intervention and transfer rates for different birth place options.

The second session is for midwives who have completed the first session and agreed with their manager to become ‘Place of Birth leads’ in their team, to support their colleagues in improving their place of birth discussions with women.

All the supporting materials for this programme have been written by subject specialists and experts in this field. The elearning programme is available on the elfh Hub, the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) and via AICC links.

Work and Health programme launched

Posted on: April 10th, 2019 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

The new Work and Health elearning programme, developed by Public Health England and Health Education England elearning for healthcare, helps healthcare professionals to recognise the value in talking to patients about work.

The elearning will support them to make brief interventions such as discussing the health benefits of work with patients, talking about return to work and advising on adjustments at work.

Good work is crucial to good health – in fact, unemployment increases the risk of early death by 63%. Healthcare professionals can play a key role in helping patients to improve their health outcomes by remaining in or returning to work.

In recognition of the impact that work can have on our health, the Association of Medical Royal Colleges, the Royal College of Nursing and the Allied Health Professions Federation have published a Health and Work Consensus Statement for Action – this sets out a commitment to support healthcare professionals in supporting this agenda.
