New Respiratory Surge in Children programme now available

Posted on: September 29th, 2021 by Hannah Denness No Comments

Health Education England, supported by NHS England and NHS Improvement Paediatric Critical Care Operational Delivery Networks and the Paediatric Critical Care Society, has launched a new programme for all NHS healthcare staff who care for unwell children in preparation for the anticipated surge in respiratory infections in 2021-22.

The Respiratory Surge in Children programme is a digital repository of training resources for self-directed learning, as well as for trainers and educators, to support the cross-skilling of the workforce to increase capacity and enhance capability in response to the expected and experienced increase in prevalence of respiratory illnesses in children.

Launched in draft form earlier this year, the programme continues to develop with the aim of providing content that is appropriate for various settings where a child will present with respiratory illness, including home, primary and community care, and across the acute hospital environment.

The programme presents elearning as a mix of short videos, narrated presentations, PDFs and links to blogs and webinars – all designed to let the learner access the content they need, in an educational form that suits them.

The Respiratory Surge in Children programme, which is hosted by HEE’s elearning for healthcare, is underpinned by an interprofessional skills matrix mapped to professional standards and frameworks. It is available free of charge to the health and care workforce.

The team continues to seek additional content, and feedback, on the work so far to co-create a programme that meets the needs of the workforce. You can get in touch to discuss specific needs, provide feedback, or share resources by emailing LTLC@hee.nhs.uk.

New learning path for foundation supervisors

Posted on: September 14th, 2021 by Hannah Denness No Comments

Health Education England (HEE) has developed a new resource for clinical and educational supervisors of foundation doctors.

Many individuals are involved in the development of a foundation doctor, including educational and clinical supervisors who play a key role in terms of guidance and support. It is important to ensure that they are trained to identify and meet the needs of those going through this level of medical training.

Training for the foundation supervisor supports the professional development of educators and includes video-based practical modules on topics such as supervision, feedback, workplace based assessments, dealing with doctors in difficulty and Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP).

Sessions may also be relevant to supervisors of speciality and GP trainees.

HEE has worked with elearning for healthcare (elfh) to review and update existing supervisor modules and create a new learning pathway which is available on the elfh Hub.
