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 elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) worked in partnership with Health Education England to develop an elearning 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 elearning 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 elearning

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 elearning 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.
