New e-learning on tackling homelessness now available

Posted on: September 22nd, 2020 by Hannah Denness No Comments

A new e-learning programme has been created to support the health and care workforce in tackling issues associated with homelessness.

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked in partnership with the Department of Health and Social Care, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, Public Health England and NHS England and NHS Improvement to develop the programme.

Tackling Homelessness aims to aid colleagues in understanding the health impacts of homelessness, identifying different forms of homelessness, gaining practical steps to making a referral and highlighting ways organisations can implement the duty effectively.

The programme offers two e-learning sessions:
Session 1 – All our Health Homelessness: This session provides an overview of the topic of homelessness to equip health and care professionals with the evidence, data and resources they need to take action on homelessness in your professional practice.
Session 2 – Duty to Refer for Frontline NHS staff: This session describes the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 duty to refer and provides practical steps to identify people experiencing homelessness. This includes information on how to obtain consent to make a referral to a local housing authority and the steps front-line staff and managers can take to implement the duty to refer.

The following organisations were also involved in developing this e-learning: Pathway, Homeless Link, Doctors of the World, Crisis, St Mungo’s, Shelter, Queen’s Nursing Institute.

e-FACE e-learning programme launches new module on consent

Posted on: September 9th, 2020 by Hannah Denness No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked with the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (BAOMS) to develop a new e-learning module on consent.
Sessions within the module have been developed to demonstrate best practice, and are aimed at Dental Core Trainees (DCTs) and Specialty Registrars in oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS).

The module aims to tackle the limited consent knowledge many trainees have by providing consent process training and a certificate is awarded once the module is complete.

The new e-FACE module includes:

  • an introduction to consent that discusses the key principles of the consent process
  • a series of short clinical scenarios that focus on commonly-performed procedures.

The Consent module joins the existing 11 modules that cover the majority of the Dental Core Training Curriculum within the e-FACE programme. The programme is designed to support junior trainees working in OMFS departments. The content is also suitable as refresher material for those starting their speciality training.

e-LfH is a Health Education England Programme in partnership with the NHS and Professional Bodies
