NHS Screening Programmes e-learning launched

Health Education England has worked in partnership with Public Health England to transfer the NHS Screening Programmes’ elearning modules on to the elearning for healthcare (elfh) 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 elearning as part of their training and continuing professional development and the new platform allows them to have all their NHS elearning training in one place.

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

This elearning offers comprehensive training for healthcare professionals who offer screening to:

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

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

Access the elearning modules on theĀ elearning for healthcare website.
