Welcome to your December 2023 update from the Foundation elearning programme. This month focuses on stress and mental health.

All doctors feel stress at some time in their working lives. How do you recognise it in yourself and/or in your colleagues? What are your options to deal with it? The following sessions contain information that can support you, as well as highlighting implications on patient safety.


The sessions cover key areas in your curriculum on:

FPC 4: Communication and Care

FPC 5: Continuity of Care

FPC 6: Sharing the Vision

FPC 7: Fitness to Practise

FPC 8: Upholding Values

FPC 11: Ethics and Law

The Foundation elearning programme has been developed specifically for Foundation doctors by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in partnership with NHS England elearning for healthcare (NHSE elfh), and is approved by the UK Foundation Programme (UKFPO).

The online training has a range of other sessions that might help you. Please log in to the programme page to view more.

You can sign on to the elearning with your login supplied by elearning for healthcare at any time during your foundation training.

HORUS and TURAS have deep links to elearning for healthcare sessions from the Foundation Curriculum and are therefore accessible to all trainees, making it quicker and easier to access the appropriate session linked to the curriculum.
