If you are willing to participate please email nhsbmenetworkuk@gmail.com.

We are ensuring core HEE work to support our NHS colleagues continues:

Topol cohort two launched this month

Wednesday 3 February 2020 saw the launch of cohort two of the Topol Digital Fellowship. This cohort consist of 35 clinicians from across the NHS in a wide variety or professions and specialties. It also includes five fellows who are sponsored by the British Association of Dermatologists in a new partnership that will hopefully be the start of a sustainable funding model for the fellowship. Cohort two will be delivered in collaboration with FutureGov through a series of workshops, lunch and learn sessions and an online community for support and soft touch coaching. In addition to this there will be a machine learning online course with the University of Manchester and access to a series of Topol Alumni masterclasses that will be available to the current cohort and all previous alumni.

Q&A webinar for potential applicants to the Scientist Training Programme

The National School of Healthcare Science hosted a webinar on Thursday 28 January 2021 that gave potential applicants to the Scientist Training Programme the opportunity to ask questions about applications, how the programme works and careers after qualifying as a clinical healthcare scientist. Staff from the school included Professor Berne Ferry (Head of School), Andrew Williams (Head of Admissions) and Jane Lynch and Namir Al Hasso (STP Training Programme Directors).

New resources showcase global radiologist programme

A new animation and set of case studies highlighting the Global Radiologist programme which aims to attract and recruit radiologists from overseas for trusts in England was launched at the end of January by HEE. The resources set out how the process around becoming a global radiologist or a host organisation for the radiologist works and outline the benefits of the programme. The programme enables radiologists to support NHS radiology departments whilst learning specialist skills, as part of a three-year earn, learn and return scheme.

Assuming responsibility for Healthcare Education and Training Tariff

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has requested HEE assume responsibility for the development and implementation of the Healthcare Education and Training Tariff payment mechanism from April 2021. In total, the tariff system paid £2bn to placement providers in the 2019/20 financial year (placement tariff and postgraduate salary support). Historically the development of proposed changes to the tariffs (including price changes, extensions to scope etc.) has been undertaken annually by DHSC, who confirm any changes as part of their annual tariff guidance document.

The new Education Funding Function will be responsible for the work as part of wider Funding policy development. For any initial discussions about HEE’s new responsibilities, any issues around the current tariffs, including guidance queries and operational issues, or for further information on tariffs and their coverage please contact educationfunding@hee.nhs.uk.

Consultation for draft standards for the foot health workforce

This consultation for draft standards for the foot health workforce seeks the views of stakeholders on a draft set of standards for the foot health practitioner and podiatry support workforce developed by HEE. The consultation opened on 23 November and will run until 15 February 2021.

New tri-partite agreement for undergraduate medical funding

From April 2021, HEE will be introducing an Undergraduate Medical Education Tri-Partite Agreement (UGME TPA) as a schedule of the new NHS Education Contract. The TPA will provide a consistent, nationwide framework for managing the financial arrangements for providing undergraduate medical education between Medical Schools, NHS placement providers (secondary care and GP) and HEE. It will also align to governance structures that HEE has already introduced comprising of Regional and Local Medical School Liaison Committees. For more information about this work, please contact Diane Hart, Senior Education Commissioner Undergraduate Medicine and Dental, at diane.hart@hee.nhs.uk.

We are making sure all professions have the training they need to make a difference:

Interim Foundation Pharmacist Programme update – Preparing for the GPhC registration assessment

The Interim Foundation Pharmacist Programme continues to help learners to develop their practice and prepare for the delayed registration assessment.

The programme team has developed a series of resources to help learners get ‘exam ready’. These resources aim to focus your revision by helping learners to create a good study plan and provide practical solutions to manage their nerves. Video sessions are available via the Learning Hub and can also be listened to as a podcast. Login to the Learning Hub and type ‘IFPP’ in the search bar.

Learners will also find a new section on our website, called ‘Getting ready for the GPhC registration assessment’. This is intended to help them find the right information quickly and signpost them to sources of help, including the new resources highlighted above.

We encourage all provisionally registered pharmacists to sign up for the programme to benefit from all the support available. The closing deadline has been extended until 10th May 2021 and you can find out more on the IFPP website.

Those working in community pharmacy, primary care and Health in Justice can further benefit by joining the Foundation Pharmacist Pathway 2020/21. Cohort 2 opened last month, and you can find out more on the CPPE website.

FURTHER INFORMATION

By following @NHS_HealthEdEng you can keep up to date with new information and resources as they are published. Most importantly are the notifications of webinars being broadcast during the week.

Right now, making sure we are communicating properly is obviously incredibly important. If there’s any information you think is missing on HEE’s webpages, please let us know by submitting your question to the HEE Q&A helpdesk.

New sessions added to e-Learning Anaesthesia

Posted on: February 12th, 2021 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked in partnership with The Royal College of Anaesthetists to add new sessions to its long-established Anaesthesia e-learning programme.

The Introduction to Critical Care module comprises 130 sessions and has been extensively revised and updated to match the standard of the UK postgraduate anaesthesia examinations. These revised sessions can act as a guide to anyone redeployed into the intensive care environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. The sessions added include:

  • Handover and the ward round
  • Physiotherapy and rehabilitation
  • Management of the patient with HIV
  • Nasogastric
  • Catheter insertion

Written and edited by anaesthetists, e-Learning Anaesthesia (e-LA) covers the knowledge and key concepts that underpin the anaesthetic curriculum and will help trainees prepare for the Fellowship of the Royal College of Anaesthetists exam.

Alongside the sessions, learners can also access an extensive e-library of articles and interactive multiple-choice questions to support continued professional development in anaesthesia.
e-Learning Anaesthesia was first established in 2007 and is one of HEE e-LfH’s longest running programmes. It also features modules on a range of other topics including basic science, obstetrics, pain management and pharmacology.

To access the new sessions and explore the whole programme, select the e-Learning Anaesthesia programme page.

New session added to Suicide and Self-harm Prevention module

Posted on: February 11th, 2021 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare has added a new e-learning session to its adult Suicide and Self-harm Prevention module within the MindEd programme.

In the session – Postvention Support for Staff and Organisational Response – learners will gain an understanding of the impact of bereavement by suicide on family, colleagues and friends, including during the COVID-19 pandemic, by following the story of two people affected by a suicide. The session explains how effective and timely support after a suspected death by suicide can reduce the distress experienced by people affected, and how colleagues can support those affected by suicide on their return to work.

The Suicide and Self-harm Prevention module, which is free to access, offers guidance and advice to anyone who is directly involved with caring for or in contact with those who have suicidal ideas, with or without self-harm, or those who self-harm, with or without current suicidal ideas. This could include health and care professionals, parents, carers and teachers.

It is designed to support learners with knowledge-oriented sessions to help identify the dos and don’ts in these difficult situations – such as remaining calm and compassionate when reacting to self-harm or suicide attempts – and skills building sessions which equip them with the skills to act.

The latest session complements 3 existing sessions on self-harm, making an assessment and therapeutic consultation competencies.

A further 2 sessions on assessment and formulation and structured care and intervention including safety planning will be available soon.

For more information and to access the session, visit the Postvention Support for Staff and Organisational Response session.

There are 2 existing modules also on suicide and self-harm to help teachers and others working with children and young people available on the MindEd Suicide and Self-harm Prevention programme page.

MindEd is a free educational resource for mental health support. The variety of free resources aims to provide adults, across professions and organisations and including parents and carers, with the knowledge to support wellbeing, the understanding to identify young and older people at risk of a mental health condition and the confidence to act on their concern and, if needed, signpost to services that can help.

We are supporting all professions to rapidly grow to meet the needs of patients by:

Supporting trainees through the pandemic

Health Education England (HEE) is continuing to support the collective response to this pandemic. We are working to support the wider system in delivering vital services, but also need to fulfil our responsibility to look after our trainees and meet their educational and training needs to become the future specialist workforce.

We are all aware of the tremendous work done by doctors during the pandemic, many of them have had their training disrupted as they provide support to patients suffering from Covid and as routine services have been affected. HEE is working closely with medical royal colleges, the GMC, NHSE &I, hospitals and trainees themselves to ensure that we get training back on track as we come out of the pandemic.

View our latest update for medical and dental trainees from Professor Simon Gregory.

The impact of COVID-19 on the future of advanced and consultant practice

In May 2020, Health Education England (HEE) commissioned a two-week, crowdsourcing, online workshop to generate insight into the lived experiences of advanced and consultant practitioners during the COVID-19 pandemic. Key findings: Advanced Practitioners skills and abilities were recognised and trusted, they were used to their full capability and potential and were able to embrace the challenge of COVID-19. But more needed to be done to ensure their skills are recognised and unleashed across the board.

The Impact of COVID-19 on Students’ Survey

HEE’s RePAIR (Reducing Pre-registration Attrition and Improving Retention) team have published the results of a survey to capture the experience of pre-registration nurses, midwives and AHPs (Allied Health Professionals) during wave one of the pandemic. Read The Impact of COVID-19 on Students’ Survey – Key Findings

Learning resources to support the workforce in responding to the pandemic

The HEE e-Learning for Healthcare Coronavirus e-learning programme was launched in March 2020 and includes resources for all members of the health and care workforce.  To date it has seen over 4million session launches.

Three animations have recently been added to the Coronavirus programme.  The animations are designed to support care home staff in preventing future outbreaks of COVID-19 in care homes.   The videos are designed to be used by social care staff from a variety of backgrounds.  The videos contain clear simple messaging around PPE, the NHS Test and Trace processes and keeping safe while getting to and from work.

The animations can be accessed in the Resources for Health and Care Home Staff in Care Home Settings area of the programme.

Rapid training and education resources for critical care 

To support staff being redeployed into critical care during the pandemic, the London Transformation and Learning Collaborative (LTLC) has worked in partnership with HEE e-LfH to develop a range of resources to support staff.

This includes:

Follow the links above to access each resource and visit the LTLC page on the e-LfH website for further support.

The website includes key resources to help individuals, educators and systems prepare for and work during surges in capacity. In recognition of the time pressure staff are under, these are designed to be short bite-sized learning that can be read or watched in advance, on the move or on the ward. The resources are for all staff, regardless of profession, and can be undertaken as self-directed learning or delivered by educators or trainers.

Please share these resources with those who may find it helpful – whether that’s individuals who have been or may be redeployed and those supporting them.

The LTLC was established in 2020, aimed at increasing the capacity of the critical care workforce in London to help prepare for a second surge in COVID-19 cases in the capital. If you need to get in touch, email ltlc@hee.nhs.uk.

COVID-19 vaccination e-learning resources

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare has worked in partnership with Public Health England and NHS England and NHS Improvement to develop the COVID-19 Vaccination e-learning programme.  The e-learning programme is designed to provide the health and care workforce involved in the national COVID-19 vaccination programme with the knowledge they need to confidently promote high uptake of the vaccine and deliver the vaccine programme effectively.

The programme currently consists of a core knowledge session, the COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 Pfizer-BioNTech session, the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca session and accompanying assessment sessions for each.  Additional sessions will be added as new vaccines are approved.

This e-learning programme provides theoretical training.  Practical training in vaccine administration, and assessment and sign-off competency is also required before administering the COVID-19 vaccine.

To date there have been more than 1.6million session launches of the e-LfH COVID-19 vaccination programme with more than 43,000 nursing and midwifery professionals and over 34,000 medical and dental professionals already completed the e-learning sessions.

For more information about the COVID-19 Vaccination programme, including details on how to access, visit the COVID-19 vaccination programme page.

Updates that have been made to the vaccination e-learning programme content since they were launched will be available on the e-LfH website.

The Learning Hub – A guide to compassionate care and communication during the pandemic now available

The Learning Hub is a digital platform that provides easy access to a wide range of education and training resources for the health and care workforce. Organisations and users can contribute and share resources for those in health and care to access.

The guide, Talking to relatives – COVID-19 compassionate phone communication is now available on the Learning Hub and provides health and care professionals with a simple framework for communicating concepts including uncertain recovery as well as tips for compassionate conversations.

During the COVID-19 pandemic there has been, and continues to be, a need to support health and care staff with compassionate care and communication with each other, patients and their relatives.  The guide has been developed by Dr Antonia Field-Smith and Dr Louise Robinson from the Palliative Care Team, West Middlesex Hospital, Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust.  As palliative medicine physicians, Drs Field-Smith and Robinson wanted to share a simple framework for health and care professionals and support those who may have been deployed to a setting this is unfamiliar to them and who may not be so experienced in these conversations.

It only takes a few minutes to contribute a resource to the Learning Hub. You can sign into the Learning Hub either using an e-Learning for Healthcare username and password or NHS OpenAthens user account details or by creating an account on the Learning Hub and using those details. Select “Contribute a new resource” and populate the form with details including the resource title, type, description and author details.

For more information about the Learning Hub follow us on Twitter: @HEE_TEL and visit the Learning Hub website to read about our journey so far.
