Stakeholder Briefing – Issue 46

Posted on: November 1st, 2021 by Hannah Denness No Comments

Key Messages and links to 28 October 2021

Welcome to Health Education England’s regular stakeholder bulletin. In this bulletin we will provide:

  • COVID-19 latest updates
  • Overview of HEE education and training news
  • An update from your regional office

HEE COVID-19 latest updates

We have created a COVID-19 update webpage that provides guidance and information from HEE, which applies to all students and trainees. This webpage also includes HEE COVID-19 surge guidance.

To keep up to date with plans for medical training recovery, visit HEE COVID-19 webpages.

Our key objective has been to unify and integrate service and training recovery
This month, we published an interim review into the ambitious programme of work that HEE and our partners are collaborating on – the medical training recovery programme. There is still so much to be done, but it has been important to pause and evaluate our progress, note our successes and consider the remaining challenges, as we take the next steps in managing the continued progression of England’s 55,000 doctors in training, and support the management of the significant NHS care backlog post-pandemic. Read the full update from HEE’s Deputy Medical Director, Prof Sheona McLeod here.

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

Medical

HEE launches new medical degree pilot as part of Blended Learning programme

Prospective medical students in England will soon be able to choose to study flexibly thanks to a new pilot scheme launched by HEE and delivered by Queen Mary University of London.

The new programme aims to give students wanting to complete a medical degree more flexibility over how they study and a greater choice of where the University can provide practice learning opportunities to complete their training.

Nursing and Midwifery

Nurses and midwives offered increased incentive to return to practice

Former nurses and midwives wishing to re-join the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register and return to practice will be offered £1,000 to help with studying and living expenses. All information required for all routes of Return to Practice are available on the Return to Practice Health Careers website.

Pharmacy

Trainee pharmacist foundation year

Roll-out of the e-portfolio continues. This new tool is directly supporting the use of the HEE Foundation Year Assessment Strategy, to support practice-based assessment against the 2021/22 interim learning outcomes set by the General Pharmaceutical Council Standards.

A record 85% of trainee foundation pharmacists are already set up on the system. If your trainee has not yet registered, please ask them to complete the HEE survey now and before the deadline of 12 December 2021.  Access is now also being rolled out to designated supervisors and education programme directors. Find out more on the Trainee Pharmacist Foundation Year website.

Undergraduate clinical placement models

We are working with Schools of Pharmacy in England to explore the introduction of cross-sector clinical placements as part of the MPharm degree. Find out more on our website.

HEE newly qualified pharmacist pathway

This new (optional) pathway aims to link the initial education and training reforms to a continuum of development into post-registration. It is designed for learners across all sectors of pharmacy, to help them meet their development needs as they enter newly qualified practice. Find out more on our website.

Mental health

New IAPT high-intensity psychotherapeutic counselling training pilot

An exciting new training pilot, launched by HEE, offers a three-year salaried and funded training pathway for 60 trainee psychotherapeutic counsellors to work in NHS Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services to deliver specified IAPT services for adults with depression.

The IAPT High-Intensity Psychotherapeutic Counsellor training pilot will support the NHS to expand access to a range of quality, evidence-based psychological therapies, as part of a wider programme to offer these interventions to an additional 380,000 adults and older people with common mental health problems by 2023/24, as set out in the NHS Long Term Plan. Find out more on our website.

Psychological professions week conference

Building on the success of last year, the Psychological Professions Network (PPN) is excited to announce the second national conference for Psychological Professions Week 2021. The free conference will run from 15-19 November 2021 and will feature sessions aligned to the National Vision of the Psychological Professions.

The PPN is a membership network for all psychological professionals and other stakeholders of NHS commissioned psychological healthcare. They inform, enable and influence NHS commissioned healthcare to maximise the benefits of the psychological professions for the public. You can register for the conference on PPN Psychological Professions week website.

Workforce and education initiatives

New patient safety training for all staff, now available

In partnership with NHS England and the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, HEE has published new patient safety training materials. The training materials can be found on the elearning for healthcare hub. The training has five levels, which build on each other, the first two levels Essentials for patient safety and Access to practice are available now. The first level, Essentials for patient safety, is the starting point and all NHS staff, even those in non-patient facing roles are encouraged to complete it. Level two, Access to practice is intended for those who have an interest in understanding more about patient safety and those who want to go on to access the higher levels of training.

The training has been devised following the publication of the NHS Patient Safety Strategy which contains a patient safety syllabus. The syllabus sets out a new approach to patient safety emphasising a proactive approach to identifying risks to safe care while also including systems thinking and human factors, all of which has been incorporated into the training. Levels three to five of the training are expected to be available by the end of March 2022.

Global Learning Opportunities and Provision Surveys

HEE and Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network (YHAHSN) have teamed up to find out more about those who have undertaken an international element to their Health and Care work or course and those who would like to.

Please fill in the survey here.

We are also working with YHAHSN to gather information from all NHS secondary care provider organisations and higher education institutions to understand current attitudes toward and provision of global health activities for current and future NHS staff. We would be grateful if those responsible for global health activities in OD, business management or HR department could complete the survey here.

The deadline for both surveys has now been extended until 26 November 2021.

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.
