e-learning for health and work is launched

Frankie, 18 May 2010

A new and free elearning resource supporting primary care professionals with dealing with patient issues relating to work and health is now available.

Health e-Working has been developed by the Faculty of Occupational Medicine in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitioners, The Society of Occupational Medicine and elfh.

It offers six easy to use, interactive elearning sessions, each taking around 20 minutes to complete to fit in with busy schedules. The sessions cover subjects such as making the occupational link, advising on fitness for work, the implications of the Disability Discrimination Act and worklessness and unemployment.

Debbie Cohen, Clinical Project Lead for Health e-Working said, ‘Enabling people to return to work is good for their long term health, however, many patients need active support from their GP or other healthcare professionals. Health e-Working helps develop the knowledge, skills and confidence of GPs, trainees, primary care nurses and practice managers in dealing with the clinical issues relating to work and health. Designed in a flexible and engaging way, Health e-Working will help GPs and their teams provide the best possible patient care.

Health e-Working is available in e-GP, elearning for General Practice. e-GP has been developed by the Royal College of General Practitioners and offers a comprehensive programme of elearning sessions covering a broad range of primary care topics. Access to Health e-Working will be automatically granted to those primary care professionals already registered with e-GP. Those wishing to register can do so at https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/general-practitioners.
