New sessions added to e-Learning Anaesthesia

Posted on: February 12th, 2021 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked in partnership with The Royal College of Anaesthetists to add new sessions to its long-established Anaesthesia e-learning programme.

The Introduction to Critical Care module comprises 130 sessions and has been extensively revised and updated to match the standard of the UK postgraduate anaesthesia examinations. These revised sessions can act as a guide to anyone redeployed into the intensive care environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. The sessions added include:

  • Handover and the ward round
  • Physiotherapy and rehabilitation
  • Management of the patient with HIV
  • Nasogastric
  • Catheter insertion

Written and edited by anaesthetists, e-Learning Anaesthesia (e-LA) covers the knowledge and key concepts that underpin the anaesthetic curriculum and will help trainees prepare for the Fellowship of the Royal College of Anaesthetists exam.

Alongside the sessions, learners can also access an extensive e-library of articles and interactive multiple-choice questions to support continued professional development in anaesthesia.
e-Learning Anaesthesia was first established in 2007 and is one of HEE e-LfH’s longest running programmes. It also features modules on a range of other topics including basic science, obstetrics, pain management and pharmacology.

New Anaesthesia video tutorials

Posted on: October 30th, 2020 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

A collection of video tutorials for trainee anaesthetists that have been developed by the North West School of Anaesthesia are now available on the Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) Hub.

The Self-IsolAting Virtual Education (SAVEd) project was developed to support the ongoing education and professional development of trainees who have been unable to complete face-to-face training during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The videos, which were created by trainees who were asked to shield or self-isolate after working in COVID-19 areas, cover a range of topics including anatomy, physics and pharmacology and are mapped to the Royal College of Anaesthetists’ curriculum.

To date, 96 tutorials have been developed and viewed more than 7,600 times by trainee anaesthetists.

These videos have now been uploaded to the e-Learning for Healthcare Hub under e-LA National Teaching Repository (North West School of Anaesthesia).
