Help us with the development of the Population Wellbeing Portal

Posted on: October 28th, 2019 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Earlier in the year Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) launched the Population Wellbeing Portal (PWP). The PWP offers free access to education, training and professional development resources, to help deliver improvements in public health and prevention. The portal provides a central location for numerous elearning resources, reading material, guidance, toolkits and videos, factsheets and many more resources relating to population health.

HEE elfh is now looking for feedback from users of the portal to help support the development of this resource. If you have used the portal, we would really appreciate it if you could fill out a survey to share your thoughts, suggestions for improvement, and ideas for future content. The short survey should take less than five minutes to complete and feedback will be very beneficial for the development of the PWP.


For more information about this piece of work please email tel@hee.nhs.uk. The survey closes on Wednesday 20 November 2019.

Simulation-based Education design toolkit now live

Posted on: October 23rd, 2019 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has added a Simulation-based Education design toolkit to its simulation faculty development resources.

The design toolkit includes videos and development resources including the Integrated Simulation and Technology Enhanced Learning Design Framework worksheet, example scenarios and workshop activity cards. The resources promote discussion about inclusivity, scalability and sustainability of simulation and technology enhanced learning in healthcare. Learning is consolidated through the completion of exercises and reflections contained in an editable and printable workbook, which may be used as evidence of continued professional development.

The other resources that form part of the simulation faculty development resources include:

  • Introduction to Simulation-based Education
  • Educational Theory and Practice for Simulation-based Education
  • Delivering Simulation-based Education Scenarios
  • Debriefing Simulation-based Education Events
  • An Introduction to Human Factors and Patient Safety.

A project is currently underway with Trent Simulation and Clinical Skills Centre at Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham and HEE’s Technology Enhanced Learning Programme to pilot and evaluate the NHET-Sim faculty development programme. If successful, a full integration of this elearning programme will be undertaken.

New e-learning session added to Sexual Health and HIV programme

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

A new elearning session on chemsex is now available as part of Health Education England elearning for healthcare’s (HEE elfh) Sexual Health and HIV (eHIV-STI) programme.

Chemsex can be described as sex whilst under the influence of drugs that have been taken immediately before or during a sexual session. The most frequently reported drugs (referred to as ‘chems’) used are Mephedrone, GHB and Methamphetamine.

Problematic use of these ‘chems’ is increasingly being identified in UK sexual health clinics and is a risk factor for the acquisition of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.

The elearning’s lead authors Dr Andrew Tomkins, consultant in Sexual Health and HIV in Chester Sexual Health services, and Dr Chris Ward, consultant in Sexual Health and HIV at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, have worked with colleagues in Genitourinary Medicine and Addiction Psychiatry to develop the session which is available here.

eHIV-STI has been developed by the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH), the Royal College of Physicians, The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow and the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh in partnership with HEE elfh.

Further elearning sessions on HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PREP), Diagnosing Mycoplasma Genitalium, Transgender Sexual Health and Domestic Violence, are currently in development.

For more information about the new session please visit: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/sexual-health-and-hiv/

elfh is a NHS England programme in partnership with the NHS and professional bodies
