Survey invites newly qualified paramedics to leave feedback on elearning

Posted on: August 3rd, 2022 by Rebecca Tinnion No Comments

To date there are 15 modules available in the Paramedics elearning programme, developed by Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) in partnership with the College of Paramedics.

As the programme develops, we would like to raise awareness of the modules across the newly qualified and newly registered paramedic community.

Feedback survey

A quick survey has been developed to gain feedback on modules in the Paramedics elearning programme.

By participating in the survey, you will provide valuable insight into the content which is most relevant (and needed) for newly registered paramedics.

Accessing the survey

The online survey, which is open from 1 August to 31 December 2022, can be completed on a mobile device, laptop or PC.

You can access the survey here.

Many thanks for your support.
