Child focused dental practices (CFDP): A series of 11 webinars focussing on the treatment of children and young people with tips and guidance on tools and techniques that can be used in general dental practice. 

General Dentistry e-learning: This series of 13 webinars provides guidance on the assessment, diagnosis and management of patients with general oral diseases.  Each session provides up to date information on current thinking and management. 

Future phases of the programme will include modules on Restorative Based e-learning, followed by the Core Learning Series for Dental Care Professionals (DCP).

NHS staff can register for the elfh Hub for free and the modules and webinars can be accessed online 24/7 so learning content is always accessible and can be completed when convenient. Each completed session provides certification of continued professional development.

It is intended for front line carers who are supporting elderly and vulnerable people both in domestic and care settings. The modules explain the health risks of excess and extreme heat in care settings and demonstrate quick and simple measures to reduce the health risk.

Modules include:

  • Heat exhaustion and heatstroke
  • How to cool down a home or care home

  • Protection from the sun
  • Further precautions

The session is based on guidance published by the UKHSA on hot weather and health.
