New Musculoskeletal Primary Care e-learning programme

New Musculoskeletal Primary Care e-learning programme

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has developed the musculoskeletal (MSK) primary care e-learning 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 e-learning modules that are also available on the e-LfH Hub.

The MSK e-learning 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 e-learning programme is available on the e-LfH Hub, the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) and via AICC.
