NHS Screening Programmes e-learning launched

Health Education England has worked in partnership with Public Health England to transfer the NHS Screening Programmes’ e-learning modules on to the e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) online platform.

There are 11 NHS Screening Programmes in England. These programmes are commissioned and managed based on the recommendations provided by UK National Screening Committee.

Screening is a way of identifying people who are at higher risk of a health problem, so that treatment can be offered or information given to help them make personalised informed decisions about their care.

Healthcare professionals use e-learning as part of their training and continuing professional development and the new platform allows them to have all their NHS e-learning training in one place.

The e-learning, which was previously available on theĀ CPD Screening website, is regularly updated to reflect national standards.

This e-learning offers comprehensive training for healthcare professionals who offer screening to:

* pregnant women
* newborn babies
* adults (abdominal aortic aneurysm).

It does not currently include e-learning for Cancer Screening or Diabetic Eye Screening, but will in future.

Access the e-learning modules on theĀ e-Learning for Healthcare website.
