New Supervision of COVID-19 Displaced or Shielding Trainees e-learning resources for educational supervisors

Rachel Gowland, 6 April 2021
Supervision of COVID-19 displaced or shielding trainees

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) worked in partnership with Health Education England to develop an e-learning resource for the educational supervisors of displaced or shielding doctors in training. Supervisors and educators of trainees in other settings may also find it useful.

The e-learning content was developed in collaboration with displaced trainees who share their experiences of being displaced, and demonstrates how they can be supported to progress in their training.

About the e-learning

This session aims to support educational supervisors in:

  • defining what a COVID-19 displaced trainee is and recognising if your trainee falls into this category
  • explaining the 4 stages in the suppoRTT framework and how to implement it
  • understanding how to support your trainee to maximise their educational and learning opportunities
  • identifying activities that the displaced trainee can complete either at home or at work, dependent on their personal and professional needs and how these fit into the curricular and e-portfolio requirements for progression
  • case studies with interactive videos and reflective questions
  • signposting to key resources for displaced trainees and their supervisors
  • checklists and guidance on risk assessments, pre-return, return and ongoing review meetings
  • enhancing the supervisor’s understanding of the experience of displacement and its impact on a trainee, both professionally and personally, and enabling them to discuss these confidently with the trainee
  • guidance for educational supervisors on communicating to the wider team regarding the experience of displacement and the support available to displaced trainees

The e-learning session takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete and enables educational supervisors to reflect on key learning points. A certificate can be downloaded on completion of the session.
