Foundation programme - November 2019 update

Alex Drinkall, 1 November 2019

Welcome to your November 2019 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 Foundation elearning programme: Professional Capability: 19 Makes patient safety a priority in clinical practice; the drive for quality in the NHS has patient safety at its heart. The elearning sessions concentrate on safe practice and what to do when things go wrong. It begins with an interactive case study where you diagnose and treat a patient, then evaluate your management plan. Moving on, you examine safe personal working practices when treating patients. You look at the management of febrile illnesses, infection control and disease notification. The focus then shifts to the importance of maintaining your own health, both physical and mental. Finally, you will look at the building blocks that support quality and safety in the NHS, including how to raise concerns about patient safety, team working, clinical governance, patient outcome and experience.
