Posted on: June 21st, 2024 by Vanessa Bassnett No Comments

Access the Foundation elearning programme

The Foundation elearning programme is an official resource designed specifically to support you in completing the 2021 Foundation Curriculum. It is available free via NHS England’s elearning for healthcare hub.  

Topics cover the entire Foundation Curriculum and completing sessions early will help you get more out of your attachments in the Foundation years. Each of these sessions are mapped to the Foundation Curriculum and provide evidence to the General Medical Council that you have completed the Curriculum. The Foundation elearning programme will also help you cover parts of the Foundation Curriculum that you may otherwise not encounter. Your sessions will be recorded in your eportfolio. 

You can sign on to the elearning with your login, supplied by elearning for healthcare, at any time during your foundation training: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/foundation-programme/ 


HORUS and TURAS have deep links to elearning for healthcare sessions from the Foundation Curriculum and therefore accessible to all trainees, making it quicker and easy to access the appropriate session linked to the curriculum. 

New sessions available on stopping over-medication of people with a learning disability and autistic people

Posted on: June 19th, 2024 by Charlotte Murray No Comments

The collection of four new sessions aim to provide a journey through Stopping Over Medication of People with a learning disability and autistic people (STOMP) and how to bring about these improvements in care that are at the heart of programme. They build on the existing, introductory modules 1-6, and focus on challenging inappropriate prescribing and how people can stay well when medication is reduced.

Developed by NHS England’s eLearning for healthcare programme (elfh) and the MindEd platform in collaboration and partnership with NHS England’s STOMP team, the first three sessionsaimed at specialist health and social care professionals, introduce and explain how inappropriate prescribing can be identified and potentially challenged. They focus on how to consider, monitor and evaluate the reduction of medication and how to identify and manage some of the consequences commonly encountered.

The final session is for people with a learning disability or who may be autistic and their family or other carers. It uses a fictional case study to illustrate how to challenge inappropriate prescribing of medication and what alternatives to medication there are so that you can manage your health and stay well:

If you are a person with a learning disability, an autistic person, a family member, support worker or carer, someone with an interest in STOMP or a health or social care professional, there is something for you. Each session will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and will have an introduction outlining who the session is aimed at. Some sessions, written for all, have downloadable easy read PDF versions.

Note that while available widely, this content is written with a UK/England context in mind.

New online learning session for schools, colleges and mental health teams about bullying and cyberbullying

Posted on: June 13th, 2024 by Charlotte Murray No Comments

In this new session learners can find out more about how to integrate whole school and college approaches for bullying and mental health and wellbeing. This includes what this means in practice for young people, families, schools, colleges and local partners. This final module; Collaborating to deal with bullying, builds on the previous three sessions which explore the causes and effects of bullying on children and young people.

Developed by the MindEd programme in NHS England’s eLearning for healthcare programme (elfh) in collaboration and partnership with experts by experience, the four modules provide up-to-date definitions of bullying and cyber bullying and guides the learner through a range of evidence-based interventions to address bullying in a school or college setting.

Each module takes approximately 30minutes to complete and through the use of scenarios and short narrative videos, they provide practical guidance and learning points on how and when to intervene to prevent bullying or cyber bullying.
