New e-learning launched to enhance the use of NICE guidelines

Health Education England’s elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) programme and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) have developed an elearning resource focusing on NICE Guidance.

The elearning offers practical advice about how to use evidence based medicine in daily practice. The elearning resource includes content that has been adapted from NICE guidelines and illustrates application of the guidance using practical examples.

There are eight sessions of elearning that cover:

  • Evidence-based medicine
  • Principles of decision making in healthcare
  • Changing clinical practice
  • Audit and feedback.

The elearning, which has been developed in conjunction with Leeds and St George’s medical schools, is designed to improve the understanding and enhance the implementation of NICE guidelines among healthcare professionals.

The elearning will help users to follow the guidance for evidence-based medicine, make decisions in an evidence-based and fair way, understand, identify and overcome barriers to change as well as conduct an audit and provide feedback.

Professor David Haslam, Chair of NICE, said: “We are delighted that these important educational resources are now available to users. Our ‘evidence into practice’ elearning modules will be invaluable to anyone looking for real-life, practical advice on putting evidence-based medicine into practice. I’d urge anyone, whether you’re a medical undergraduate or a clinician who’s been practising for years, to use these free modules to bridge the gap between understanding evidence-based medicine and knowing how to use it effectively to drive up standards of care.”
