New sessions for pharmacists available within the Educator Training Resource Programme

Posted on: September 1st, 2020 by Rachel Gowland No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked with the HEE London and South East Pharmacy Team (working across London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex) to develop four new e-learning sessions, aimed at developing the knowledge and skills pharmacy educators require for supervising, assessing and evaluating pharmacy students in a variety of primary and secondary care settings.  Although primarily aimed for educators, the modules are also suitable for trainees on pharmacy programmes.

What do the e-learning sessions cover?

The e-learning sessions include:

  • Introduction to supervised learning events (SLE)
  • Mini clinical evaluation exercise (MiniCEX)
  • Care based discussion (CBD)
  • Direct observation of practical skills (DOPS)

Each e-learning session takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and includes videos and multiple-choice questions to test your knowledge.  You may choose to dip in and out of the sessions when it is convenient to you.

These sessions complement the existing resources for pharmacy educators, which include:

  • MRCF (Medicines Related Consultation Framework)
  • Multi-Source Feedback (MSF) (Mini-TAB)
  • RITA (Record of In-service Training Assessment)

More about the Educator Training Resources Programme

Launched in March 2017, the Educator Training Resources are aimed at educators and supervisors across medical professional groups.  Content was originally migrated from HEE Kent, Surrey and Sussex’s e-training for trainers (etft) platform, together with London’s multi-professional Faculty Development modules.  Complementary content from other regions was also included to produce a national resource.

Modules are linked to the Professional Development Framework for Educators and the curriculum for pharmacists has been developed by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, with initial adoption in London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

The framework domains map to professional regulatory standards for education and training including HEE’s Quality Framework standards and are applicable to all educators working in clinical practice and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) as guidance for best practice.

Accessing the e-learning

The new e-learning sessions for pharmacists are part of the Educator Training Resource Programme, accessible via the Educator Hub and the ‘Enhancing Learning Through Assessment’ module.

New content to the Educators Training Resource programme

Posted on: December 12th, 2018 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has added new content to the Educators Training Resource programme to help educators in their role of supporting the careers of their junior colleagues.

The Supporting Career Conversations for Educators content can be found within the course, 06 – Guiding Personal and Professional Development as part of the Educators Training Resource Programme. The content sets out the rationale for providing careers support to more junior colleagues, trainees and learners and the value of this to the organisation.

The course introduces the underpinning principles of having supportive career-focussed discussions with junior colleagues and trainees. The course also offers some techniques, approaches and insights into best practice to better equip colleagues to support learners to help them move their careers forward in a satisfying direction.

The final session explores different ways individuals may make decisions about their careers, introduces a framework to help structure career conversations and demonstrates how even a five-minute conversation can make a positive difference to a colleague’s career.

The programme has several links to further resources to support this role.

The programme is available via the e-LfH Hub and the Electronic Staff Record (ESR).
