Patient safety modules launched for acute care professionals

Acute Care professionals can now access new modules of the Patient Safety Syllabus training elearning sessions on the elfh portal which have been tailored to support the specific needs of their profession. 

Patient safety is a collective responsibility and a key priority for health and care. This training is available to NHS and healthcare staff and supports the NHS Patient Safety Strategy, emphasising a proactive approach to identifying risks to safe care.  

Content for both Levels 1 and 2 of the syllabus training have been updated and include improvements to usability, interactivity, and navigation and a certificate of completion and five sector specific patient safety case studies in total for Mental Health, Maternity, Healthcare mangers and administrative staff care, Primary Care and Acute Care. 

All updates to the content and functionality have been made in response to feedback from users. There is also a self-assessment for the Access to Practice module which learners must pass to move on to the sector-specific sessions and a Certificate of completion for each case study area. 

Acute session content covers: 

  • Acute care in the NHS hospitals  
  • Elective and emergency care 
  • Systems thinking in acute care  
  • Safety culture in hospital acute care  
  • Human factors in hospital acute care 
  • Areas of risk and risk factors
