New sessions for pharmacists available within the Educator Training Resource Programme

Rachel Gowland, 1 September 2020

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with the HEE London and South East Pharmacy Team (working across London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex) to develop four new elearning sessions, aimed at developing the knowledge and skills pharmacy educators require for supervising, assessing and evaluating pharmacy students in a variety of primary and secondary care settings.  Although primarily aimed for educators, the modules are also suitable for trainees on pharmacy programmes.

What do the elearning sessions cover?

The elearning sessions include:

  • Introduction to supervised learning events (SLE)
  • Mini clinical evaluation exercise (MiniCEX)
  • Care based discussion (CBD)
  • Direct observation of practical skills (DOPS)

Each elearning session takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and includes videos and multiple-choice questions to test your knowledge.  You may choose to dip in and out of the sessions when it is convenient to you.

These sessions complement the existing resources for pharmacy educators, which include:

  • MRCF (Medicines Related Consultation Framework)
  • Multi-Source Feedback (MSF) (Mini-TAB)
  • RITA (Record of In-service Training Assessment)

More about the Educator Training Resources Programme

Launched in March 2017, the Educator Training Resources are aimed at educators and supervisors across medical professional groups.  Content was originally migrated from HEE Kent, Surrey and Sussex’s e-training for trainers (etft) platform, together with London’s multi-professional Faculty Development modules.  Complementary content from other regions was also included to produce a national resource.

Modules are linked to the Professional Development Framework for Educators and the curriculum for pharmacists has been developed by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, with initial adoption in London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

The framework domains map to professional regulatory standards for education and training including HEE’s Quality Framework standards and are applicable to all educators working in clinical practice and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) as guidance for best practice.

Accessing the elearning

The new elearning sessions for pharmacists are part of the Educator Training Resource Programme, accessible via the Educator Hub and the ‘Enhancing Learning Through Assessment’ module.
