Health Literacy

Posted on: March 19th, 2020 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and Health Education England (HEE) have collaborated to develop a new, free e-learning module for people working in health and care to understand the role health literacy plays in the health and social care systems.

Health literacy is about people having enough knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence to use health information, to be active partners in their care, and to navigate health and social care systems. Therefore, to access, assess and apply health information, people need to be health literate. People working in health and social care need to be aware of health literacy and of the techniques that can help to increase understanding.

The e-learning resource takes about 30 mins to complete. At the end of the module learners will know why health literacy is important and how to use some simple techniques including TeachBack, chunk and check, using pictures and simple language to improve communication and check understanding with others. After each section learners complete an action plan detailing how they plan to use the techniques in practice. This plan can be used as evidence of learning in appraisals or professional portfolios.

This e-learning resource is pitched educationally as an introduction to health literacy, why it is important and the core techniques that can be used to improve health literacy. The resource supports a more blended approach to learning and spreading awareness of health literacy, building on the NES resource in The Health Literacy Place and HEE’s health literacy toolkit .

How can a new radiology trainee approach the level of knowledge required to complete the Fellow of the Royal College of Radiologists (FRCR) examinations and core radiology training?

Posted on: March 12th, 2020 by Alex Drinkall

The knowledge and skills required are broad, but the trainee is also required to know them in detail. Add to this the fact that much of this knowledge is new, as radiology, particularly the physics, is not well covered during medical school or foundation training. There is so much to cover, with so many possible resources out there. Books provide a lot of information, but can be difficult to digest and retain, and can become out of date quickly in such an ever-changing field. There are many online resources, but it is hard to know which to trust.

Dr Mark PhillipsThe Radiology Integrated Training Initiative (R-ITI) was developed by the Royal College of Radiologists in collaboration with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare to address this issue. I have used it throughout my training and have been successful in all of my FRCR exams on first attempt and have progressed from core training into sub-specialty training satisfactorily.

The R-ITI modules cover all the required knowledge of the curriculum, and practical skills such as procedures. The interactive nature makes them more engaging, which is essential for long revision sessions! They also undergo regular review and updates, so as to remain relevant.

If you are finding the prospect of tackling the entirety of the FRCR syllabus daunting, then I would highly recommend looking at the R-ITI modules on offer, as a way of breaking it down into more manageable blocks. Alternatively, you may have a specific topic in your subspecialty interest that you have been struggling with, in which case you may wish to check the R-ITI library for an interactive module to help you.

Whatever your need, check with R-ITI first.

Embedding public health into clinical services e-learning programme now live

Posted on: March 5th, 2020 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare has worked in partnership with Public Health England and NHS England and NHS Improvement to develop an e-learning programme to help embed public health in clinical services.

There has been a growing interest in public health by health and care professionals, and the policy framework is placing increasing priority on prevention, NHS services have traditionally been established to provide specialist treatment rather than prevention.

This e-learning programme is intended to support leaders and service managers to guide their teams through the process of re-designing services to support prevention.

Designed as a 5-step process, the programme provides a practical toolkit of useful resources to help individuals and multidisciplinary teams identify their unique contribution to implement quality improvement initiatives to transform services.

The e-learning content is pragmatic and iterative, recognising the competing pressures on front line teams. The tools and resources highlighted can be useful in more than one stage of the 5-step process and will be inter-dependent with wider improvement initiatives.

Antimicrobial Stewardship for community pharmacy staff

Posted on: February 26th, 2020 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England (HEE) has worked in partnership with Public Health England, British Society of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, Royal Pharmaceutical Society, University of Leeds and University of Nottingham to develop an e-learning session for community pharmacy staff on the impact of antimicrobial resistance.

This e-learning session will help community pharmacy staff to understand the connection between antibiotic use and antibiotic resistance and identify their role in optimising antibiotic use in the general population who visit their pharmacy.

The resource also includes information on using the Antibiotic Checklist to personalise patient advice when dispensing antibiotics and awareness of the global impact of antibiotic resistance.

The e-learning is available to access for free on the HEE e-Learning for Healthcare Hub and will soon also be available on the Electronic Staff Record (ESR).

New e-learning on hypertension now available

Posted on: February 5th, 2020 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England has worked with NHS England & NHS Improvement and Public Health England to develop an e-learning programme to address the huge underdiagnosis and inaccurate diagnosis of hypertension.

The Hypertension upskilling programme incorporates up to date guidelines and evidence-based aims to aid front-line primary care colleagues in the diagnosis and management of hypertension and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk – including familial, hypercholesterolaemia, artrial fibrillation, dyslipidaemia and other cardiovascular disease related conditions.

The NHS Long Term Plan makes hypertension one of the top three cardiovascular priorities, alongside artrial fibrillation and lipid management. This plan has set a target of, over the next ten years, 80% of the expected prevalence of hypertension should be diagnosed and, of those diagnosed, 80% treated to target as per NICE guidelines.

The programme was funded by Health Education England and developed in partnership with NHS England & NHS Improvement, and Public Health England. It consists of a webinar and a short quiz to test knowledge and understanding of the topic.
