Medical Problems in Pregnancy e-learning updated

Posted on: January 7th, 2021 by Hannah Denness No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked with the Wellbeing of Women charity to update the Medical Problems in Pregnancy e-learning programme.

The programme is primarily designed for internal medicine trainees but will also be of use to others in ACCS (Acute Care Common Stem), obstetrics and anaesthesia and allied health professionals.

Every year a small number of women in the UK die in pregnancy or the puerperium. The main causes of maternal death are medical complications including cardiac disease, neurological disease and sepsis.

Trainee physicians only encounter pregnant women occasionally and may not have a working knowledge of either the dynamic physiology of pregnancy or the effect this has on interpretation of examination findings and laboratory investigations. This may lead to a delay in the timely and appropriate management of the acutely unwell pregnant women.

The six sessions within the module have been reviewed and updated to represent current knowledge and guidelines. They are:

  • The physiology of pregnancy
  • Medical disorders complicating pregnancy
  • Prescribing safely in pregnancy
  • Clinical assessment of the pregnant patient
  • Communication and co-ordination of care for the complex obstetric patient
  • Common and important clinical scenarios: sepsis and thromboembolism

Each session includes interactive exercises, case examples and short videos.

More information and access details are available on the Medical Problems in Pregnancy programme page.

The programme evaluation survey is now live and available within the updated sessions.

e-Learning for Healthcare Hub sees highest daily session launches

Posted on: January 7th, 2021 by Leanne Hargreaves No Comments

The number of session launches in one day on the Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare Hub (HEE e-LfH) has reached its highest figure ever.

On Tuesday 5 January 2021, the HEE e-LfH Hub saw a record 190,415 session launches in a single day, with health and care professionals accessing a variety of e-learning sessions from the free 350+ e-learning programmes available. During 2020, e-LfH saw more than 22 million session launches on the Hub throughout the year.

The health and care workforce is continuing to use the e-LfH Coronavirus e-learning resources to support their response to the pandemic and the e-LfH COVID-19 vaccination e-learning programme is 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, which is resulting in the e-LfH Hub seeing a further surge in usage on the platform.  To date there have been more than 710,000 session launches of the e-LfH COVID-19 vaccination e-learning programme alone.

  • Sickle cell and thalassemia

COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca e-learning sessions now available

Posted on: January 1st, 2021 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 the COVID-19 Vaccination e-learning programme.  The e-learning programme is designed to provide the health and care workforce involved in the national COVID-19 vaccination programme with the knowledge they need to confidently promote high uptake of the vaccine and deliver the vaccine 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.

All those undertaking this e-learning should complete the core knowledge session as this is designed to provide essential knowledge about COVID-19 and the key principles of immunisation needed to deliver the vaccine.  Learners should then complete both vaccine specific sessions as these provide more detailed information including how the vaccine works, how it should be stored, prepared and administered and any contraindications, precautions and potential vaccine reactions. The assessment sessions should be completed after each session.

The e-learning sessions describe the national COVID-19 vaccination programme for England. Most of the information in the sessions will be relevant for those involved in the programme throughout the UK and Crown Dependencies. However, those undertaking the programme in Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the Crown Dependencies should be aware that some details as to how the programme will be delivered may be different. Vaccinators should therefore ensure that they refer to any country-specific information available, so they are familiar with the details of the programme for the country they are practising in.

This e-learning programme provides theoretical training.  Practical training in vaccine administration, and assessment and sign-off competency is also required before administering the COVID-19 vaccine.

For more information about the COVID-19 Vaccination programme, including details on how to access, visit the e-LfH website.

e-LfH launches hit 20 million for 2020

Posted on: December 18th, 2020 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) Hub has passed the milestone of 20 million content launches so far this year.  Over the last 14 years there have been 50 million session launches on the e-LfH Hub with 20 million of those being in just the last 12 months.

The health and care workforce have engaged with e-learning and the growth in usage of e-LfH resources indicates there is great demand for a blended approach to learning across the health and care workforce.

Patrick Mitchell, Director of Innovation and Transformation at Health Education England,

“20 million launches in a single year is a very significant milestone and achievement for Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare and reflects how important our role is in providing education and training resources for the health and care workforce. It represents 20 million training interventions to help hard working staff deliver better patient care.

“This increase in use can partly be attributed to our Coronavirus programme, which is regularly being updated to meet the needs of the workforce responding to the pandemic, the NHS Test and Trace resources and the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

“But it is also reflective of changes in working patterns and practices as a whole. There were already high levels of usage for online learning and that has been further heightened by the pandemic, as face-to-face sessions and ‘hands on’ learning have been replaced for many by e-learning and other online learning solutions. “

HEE e-LfH, which is part of the Technology Enhanced Learning team, supports patient care by developing e-learning resources to educate and train the health and care workforce. Currently more than 400 e-learning programmes are available, or being developed, in collaboration with organisations including Royal Colleges, Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England and NHS Improvement and Public Health England.

HEE e-LfH’s programmes cover subjects from audiology to anaesthesia, dentistry to dermatology, electronic fetal monitoring to end of life care, primary care to prescribing, safeguarding children to statutory and mandatory training.
