COVID-19 e-learning module available for paramedics

Rachel Gowland, 25 January 2021

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and the College of Paramedics developed an elearning module which provides educational support for paramedics and emergency responders.

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

Supporting paramedic practice during COVID-19

Written by experienced paramedic elearning 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 elearning 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.
