New Robotic Process Automation elearning programme now available 

Posted on: October 17th, 2022 by Rebecca Tinnion No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked in partnership with NHS Transformation Directorate to develop the first NHS elearning programme on Robotic Process Automation (RPA).  

 

RPA is software that automates routine and mundane tasks. In recent years the NHS has increased its adoption of RPA to improve the efficiency and productivity of clinical and non-clinical admin processes.  

 

The new RPA elearning programme has been designed to support NHS health and social care organisations to develop, procure and implement this technology in-house and create a skilled workforce capable of overseeing RPA enabled processes.  

 

The programme is aimed at senior leaders and wider NHS users who want to build confidence in taking RPA forward in the workplace.  

 

This elearning programme is comprised of 5 modules, which build on each other. The first 2 modules, Introduction to Robotic Process Automation and Getting started with RPA, are available to health and care professionals with no prior knowledge of digital technologies. The latter modules build in complexity and are suited to learners with more specialist knowledge of RPA.

Updated and refreshed Five Ways to Wellbeing module

Posted on: September 21st, 2022 by Rebecca Tinnion No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) in partnership with the HEE Long Term Conditions and Prevention programme team are delighted to relaunch the Five Ways to Wellbeing module on the Making Every Contact Count (MECC) programme page.

Five Ways to Wellbeing is a standardised framework, containing a set of evidence-based actions to help improve people’s wellbeing. Originally developed in 2008 by the New Economics Foundation (NEF), Five Ways to Wellbeing is part of the wider MECC approach and encourages individuals to improve their physical and mental health and wellbeing through five acts:

  1. connect
  2. be active
  3. keep learning
  4. give
  5. take notice

Individuals who work across health, care, local authority, and emergency services may recognise the Five Ways to Wellbeing framework for public health intervention.
This elearning module is designed to provide information on Five Ways to Wellbeing and support learners to use their public facing roles to improve population mental and physical health and wellbeing.

The recent update includes the addition of new case studies, and a wider review of content to ensure the elearning reflects latest policy and clinical practice.

Inspiring wellbeing through five simple steps, this module underpins existing MECC approaches by highlighting the importance of everyday interactions. On completion of the module, learners should be able to define the term “wellbeing” and appreciate the links between wellbeing and health.  Learners should also feel confident about using the Five Ways to Wellbeing framework to support their practice of MECC.

To access more information about MECC, including the recently updated Five Ways to Wellbeing module, please visit the Making Every Contact Count programme page.

Making Every Contact Count Toolkit now available

Posted on: August 24th, 2022 by Rebecca Tinnion No Comments

The Long Term Conditions and Prevention programme team in Health Education England have worked with Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh), to develop a Making Every Contact Count (MECC) toolkit.

The toolkit is populated with reviewed resources and information previously hosted on the making every contact count microsite and aims to support individual learners and organisations to use MECC effectively.

MECC is an approach to behaviour change that utilises the millions of day-to-day interactions that organisations and people have with other people to encourage changes in behaviour that have a positive effect on the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and populations.

The wider MECC elearning programme, consisting of 4 elearning sessions, supports learners with developing an understanding of public health, emphasising how asking questions and listening effectively to people is a vital role for us all.

The new toolkit compliments existing elearning sessions by bringing together a library of national and local resources to further support the development, evaluation and implementation of MECC.

Containing more than 130 new resources, this toolkit has been structured so you can either use it whole or select relevant sections to revisit over time.

You can read more about the toolkit, including how to access it, by visiting the Making Every Contact Count programme page.
