Foundation programme – February 2020 update

Alex Drinkall, 19 February 2020

Welcome to your February 2020 update about the Foundation elearning programme that has been developed specifically for Foundation doctors by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in partnership with Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and is approved by UKFPO.

Do you need to complete parts of the curriculum on your e-portfolio which you do not cover in day-to-day practice? If so, why not try some of our free elearning mapped directly to the Foundation Professional Capabilities (Training Outcomes) in the 2016 Foundation Curriculum.

The sessions in the elfh Foundation elearning programme:

Professional Capability: 3 Behaves in accordance with ethical and legal requirements; the Mental Health Act protects the rights of vulnerable adults and children; a group of the elearning sessions outline the responsibilities of the people who care for them.

You will find out how the GMC supports your career development, looking at the topics of registration, the Foundation Programme and your career development.

There are sessions which focus on the safeguarding of adults and children in primary and secondary care. Finally, the importance of protecting data is explored in sessions about information security and the Data Protection Act.
