New Musculoskeletal Primary Care e-learning programme

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has developed the musculoskeletal (MSK) primary care elearning programme to support clinicians working in primary care as first contact practitioners (FCP).

The programme is as a resource to support clinical competency assessment and sign off through a clinical training programme. The programme provides eight modules that take the learner through a range of primary care issues that are commonly seen as part of a MSK FCP assessment.

The modules have been designed to complement the MSK core capabilities framework that outlines the expected clinical capabilities that a competent clinician should be able to demonstrate when working in this field of clinical practice. All the modules have been produced with a person-centred approach (PCA) and it is recommended that clinicians complete the PCA elearning modules that are also available on the elfh Hub.

The MSK elearning programme consists of eight modules:

  • Module 1 – What is primary care
  • Module 2 – Identification of the ill and risk.
  • Module 3 – Mental health
  • Module 4 – Complex decision making
  • Module 5 – Public health
  • Module 6 – Persistent pain
  • Module 7 – Pharmacology
  • Module 8 – Serious pathology

Each module includes self-assessment and a certificate of completion.

The MSK elearning programme is available on the elfh Hub, the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) and via AICC.
