COVID-19 e-learning module available for paramedics

Rachel Gowland, 25 January 2021

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) and the College of Paramedics developed an e-learning module which provides educational support for paramedics and emergency responders.

Supporting Paramedic Practice During COVID-19 is available within the paramedics e-learning programme and includes interactive learning experiences that are accessible on mobile devices.

Supporting paramedic practice during COVID-19

Written by experienced paramedic e-learning authors for the College of Paramedics, the module includes 5 sessions of varied lengths which learners can select individually, or complete as a whole module.

The sessions include:

  • the assessment and management of COVID-19 patients for paramedics
  • paramedic wellbeing during a pandemic
  • mechanical ventilators used in prehospital care
  • paramedic use of PPE
  • COVID-19 additional guidance for paramedics

By completing the module, you will achieve a greater understanding of virus transmission, assessment and management of COVID-19 patients and contribute to your Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Learners have found the COVID-19 module to be “a very good source of information”, “all very relevant and interesting” and commented that the e-learning is “very clear and easy to understand” and they “will recommend it to colleagues”.

Other modules in the paramedics programme include:

  • clinical decision making for paramedics
  • mental health for paramedics
  • pain management for paramedics

Your feedback and accessing the module

As knowledge of the effects and management of the COVID-19 virus continues to evolve, we welcome your feedback.

You will be invited to rate and leave a comment at the end of each session. Leaving free-text comments helps us to develop learning resources which are relevant to you and your colleagues.
