Posted on: July 1st, 2020 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked with the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) to add new content to the e-Learning Programme for Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (e-LPRAS).

e-LPRAS offers a wide range of sessions covering the knowledge-base of plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery and is aimed at plastic surgery trainees from speciality training year 3 (ST3) onwards. The e-learning will also appeal to consultants, non-consultant career grades and allied health professionals who want to increase and update their knowledge base.

Six new sessions have been added to the programme and three existing sessions have been updated.

New sessions are:

  • Axillary Sampling and Axillary Clearance in Breast Cancer (within Module 6 – Breast and Chest Wall)
  • Dressings and Splintage Following Surgery for Burns (Module 9 – Burns)
  • Initial Management of Head and Neck Burns (Module 9 – Burns)
  • Liposuction in the Lower Limb (Module 8 – Lower Limb)
  • Median, Ulnar and Radial Nerve Blocks (Module 5 – Upper Limb)
  • Leg Ulcers (Module 8 – Lower Limb)

Updated sessions are:

  • Pyogenic Granuloma (within Module 1 – Essentials of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery)
  • Skin Ulcers – Aetiology and Pathology (Module 1 – Essentials of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery)
  • Clinical Assessment of Burn Wound Depth (Module 9 – Burns)

e-LPRAS team demonstrate the programme

Members of the team that work on the Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LFH) e-Learning Programme for Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (e-LPRAS) recently supported the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) with its Advanced Educational Course on ‘Limb Reconstruction’.

The event, which took place at the Manchester Conference Centre last month, was very well attended and included a mix of both practical demonstrations and traditional lectures.

Delegates were invited to complete a selection of e-LPRAS sessions as pre-course and/or post-course reading. Session topics included ‘Chronic Osteomyelitis in the Lower Limb’, ‘Acute Compartment Syndrome in the Lower Limb’ and ‘Management of Bone Loss in Open Fractures of the Lower Limb’.

e-LPRAS Stand (002)Team members also manned a dedicated e-LPRAS stand in the exhibitors’ area, allowing them to gather feedback, register new users and spread the word about new developments on the project.

Stephen Gibbons, e-LfH Project Manager said, “As the e-LPRAS project grows, face-to-face events such as these remain vital. They provide an important opportunity for team members to connect with our users and for the project to demonstrate its commitment to the educational role of BAPRAS. Thanks to Kavita Prashar and the rest of the BAPRAS team for helping to make it happen.”

Further BAPRAS Advanced Educational Courses on topics such as ‘Cleft, Craniofacial and Ear Reconstruction’ and ‘Skin Oncology’ are planned for later this year and for early 2019.
