New e-learning module to support detection of early deterioration of patients with COVID-19

Posted on: May 19th, 2021 by Leanne Hargreaves No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked in partnership with other NHS organisations, the West of England Academic Health Science Network, the Wessex Local Medical Committee and the TEL programme simulation and immersive technology team, to develop 2 free elearning resources to support detection of early deterioration of patients with COVID-19.

The NHS @home elearning programme consists of the COVID-19 Oximetry @home and COVID-19 Virtual Wards pathways, offering elearning resources to enable people to be confidently monitored in community settings such as care homes.

 

New COVID Oximetry module

The NHS @home elearning programme provides an overview of pulse oximetry and explains how to monitor oxygen levels at home or in a care home setting.

It is designed to be used alongside the NHS pulse oximetry documents.

People at high risk of becoming seriously unwell from Coronavirus are being provided with a pulse oximeter to monitor the oxygen levels in their blood at home for up to 14 days. This includes people who are clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus and includes people living in care homes.

A pulse oximeter is a small medical device that is put on the tip of the finger. By regularly monitoring oxygen levels it can be easier to spot if Coronavirus symptoms are getting worse and whether people need treatment or support.

People with COVID-19 may become very unwell if their oxygen levels fall too far. This elearning provides an overview of pulse oximetry for carers, including how to take the measurements and how to tell others if they are worried.

More information, including access details, is available on the programme page.

 

New NHS COVID Virtual Wards elearning module

The new COVID Virtual Wards (CVWs) elearning module has been developed to support the non-registered workforce with monitoring of patients on CVWs in community settings.

The COVID Virtual Ward – introduction to monitoring elearning resource explains who the patients are, how they are admitted, why monitoring is important, their role in monitoring, further considerations are also explored.  It is designed to be used alongside call scripts.

 

It is likely that systems will adopt their own approach in terms of delivery of care and as such this learning should be used in conjunction with local training and policies.

More information, including access details, is available on the NHS @home programme page.

New Supervision for Multi-Professional Teams e-learning programme now available

Posted on: April 8th, 2021 by Leanne Hargreaves No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) have worked in partnership with NHS England and NHS Improvement and Health Education England to develop a new, free elearning programme to support multi-professional teams across the NHS to understand the basis of supervision in the workplace.

The Supervision for multi-professional teams elearning programme aims to provide an overview of the Core Supervision model through several resources including a core model and operational resources.

This elearning programme has been developed to support with the ‘Core model of supervision for multi-professional teams’, initiated by The GPN 10 Point Plan. The plan was led by the Chief Nursing Officer for England and its overarching focus is to build and develop the capacity and capability needed to be seen across the whole primary care workforce in order to enable the health and care workforce to manage more people’s health closer to home, as well as building GPN capability to support improved and innovative approaches in delivering health and wellbeing.

 

More information on the ‘Core model of supervision for multi-professional teams’ can be found on the Future NHS Collaboration Platform – Registration required.

 

How to access the elearning

The Supervision for multi-professional teams programme is available to the health and care workforce via HEE elfh.

2020 National Education and Training Survey Results

The results for the recent HEE NETS are out now. NETS is aimed at all healthcare trainees and students across all clinical learning environments. The final number of responses received was 36,686, which is a 20% increase on the 2019 survey.

The interactive NETS Reporting Tool is now available on our website alongside a suite of regional and professional reports. These aim to provide an overview of the survey response data and offer a high-level analysis from the perspective of an NHS Region or professional group. The NETS Reporting Tool provides a granular level of information and includes a series of filterable options to enable the user to view relevant response data and create bespoke reports.

Together, the tool and reports illustrate the experience of students and trainees and offer a valuable insight into the wellbeing of learners during the pandemic.  This information can be triangulated with existing quality indicators, data sources and clinical and professional insights and intelligence to form a comprehensive picture of the clinical learning environment.

Joint plan for inclusive pharmacy practice

A joint plan for inclusive pharmacy was published last week. We are working collaboratively with NHS England and NHS Improvement, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK to develop and embed inclusive pharmacy professional practice into everyday care for patients and members of the public, to support the prevention of ill-health and address health inequalities within our diverse communities. Find out more here.

Establishing the NHS Digital Academy is a workstream within the HEE Digital Readiness Programme. This programme is commissioned by NHSX.

HEE Star: proven to workforce redesign

The HEE Star is a definitive tool for any workforce redesign programme and Health Education England (HEE) has spent three years researching, building and refining the Star methodology and a set of accompanying resources to become the highly effective solution it has become today.

HEE commissioned health economists, Economics By Design, to qualify and quantify the value to providers and systems of applying the HEE Star methodology to planning workforce redesign. Evidence drawn from multiple examples of use illustrate greater results in a shorter time period – saving time for senior leaders and clinicians, as well as generating the potential for faster and more wide-spread change, given the efficiency and breadth of the design process.

 

We are making sure all professions have the training they need to make a difference:

Updates to End of Life Care (e-ELCA)

A new session on the AMBER care bundle has been added to the End of Life Care for All (e-ELCA) elearning programme.

This new session describes what the care bundle is, why it was developed and how to use it in clinical practice. It also explains how the resource will help colleagues to provide high quality care for patients who are facing uncertain recovery and may be approaching the end of life.

Eleven sessions have also been updated within the programme. These sessions are:

 

FURTHER INFORMATION

By following @NHS_HealthEdEng you can keep up to date with new information and resources as they are published. Most importantly are the notifications of webinars being broadcast during the week.

Right now, making sure we are communicating properly is obviously incredibly important. If there’s any information you think is missing on HEE’s webpages, please let us know by submitting your question to the HEE Q&A helpdesk.

HEE e-LfH COVID-19 vaccination programme launches hit 2 million

Posted on: March 4th, 2021 by Leanne Hargreaves No Comments

Health Education England’s elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) COVID-19 Vaccination programme has passed the milestone of 2 million session launches since going live.

The elfh COVID-19 vaccination elearning programme continues to be an essential part of the vaccination recruitment and training process.  Health and care colleagues are using the resource to develop the knowledge needed to confidently promote high uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine and deliver the vaccination programme effectively.

The programme consists of a core knowledge session, the COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 Pfizer-BioNTech session, the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca session and accompanying assessment sessions for each.  New elearning sessions will be added as each new vaccine becomes available.

Since the COVID-19 vaccination programme went live, the content has been updated and amended as more information about the vaccines and the vaccine programme has become available. Further details about the recent updates can be found on the elfh news page.

The wealth of COVID-19 resources available on elfh, including the vaccination elearning, remain free to access by people working in the NHS, the healthcare sector, the independent sector and social care. The online learning resources have proved invaluable to new, existing and returning staff, particularly where traditional learning environments have been unavailable.

More details about the vaccination content can be found on the elfh COVID-19 vaccination programme page.
