Foundation elearning programme update August 2021

Posted on: August 4th, 2021 by Hannah Denness No Comments

The Foundation curriculum has now changed and we have a new Foundation elearning programme which aligns all elearning sessions with the new 2021 curriculum.

F1 doctors starting in August 2021 and doctors becoming F2 in August 2021 were enrolled to the new Foundation elearning programme on 30 June 2021. The existing Foundation elearning programme, which aligns with the 2016 curriculum, was retired on 4 August 2021 and all history of previous sessions completed will be kept on the elearning for healthcare hub.

The Foundation elearning programme is an official resource designed specifically to support those completing the Foundation Curriculum and is available free via the elearning for healthcare (elfh) hub. Each session is mapped to the Foundation Curriculum and elearning material is designed to enhance and blend with the existing teaching within Foundation schools.

The material has been developed by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in partnership with Health Education England elearning for healthcare and is approved by UKFPO.

We have also included an update about the SCRIPT Medicine and Surgery portfolio for foundation trainee doctors. 

SCRIPT elearning for safer prescribing

Created in 2010, the SCRIPT elearning programme was developed by the University of Birmingham and OCB Media and commissioned by Health Education England.

The elearning is designed to encourage safe and effective prescribing and optimal medicines management among healthcare professionals.

How effective is elearning?

The European Association for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (EACPT) Working Group on education recently conducted a review to identify and assess the effects of digital learning on learner-related and clinically relevant outcomes.

They concluded that “elearning is the most-used type of digital learning for safe and effective prescribing education and is efficacious in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate prescribers the required knowledge, skills, and attitudes“.

About the SCRIPT Medicine and Surgery portfolio for foundation trainee doctors

The SCRIPT Medicine and Surgery elearning portfolio for foundation trainee doctors is a collection of 49 modules, delivered through a dedicated learning platform, that have been specifically designed to help improve the prescribing competency and safety of foundation doctors.  The portfolio is freely available to all foundation schools in England.

A module usually takes approximately one hour to complete but does not have to be completed in one sitting. Content has been authored by a team of expert healthcare professionals and is reviewed and updated on a regular basis.

How do I access the programme?

Anyone with a @nhs.net or @nhs.uk e-mail address can access SCRIPT Medicine and Surgery for free.

Where can I get support with the SCRIPT elearning programme?

In addition to individual access, all foundation schools are provided with a dedicated instance of SCRIPT specific to their region, including a full trainee reporting and monitoring tool. If you represent a foundation school and would like further information on this, please email Nicholas Blackwell to discuss it further.

If you are new to elearning, or have a question about the elearning modules, Nicholas Blackwell will be running virtual live demos on the following dates from 10am to 11am:

  • Tuesday 15 December 2020
  • Tuesday 12 January 2021
  • Tuesday 16 February 2021

During the sessions you will:

  • Have a tour of the SCRIPT user experience
  • Run through a summary of the different SCRIPT variants
  • View some example SCRIPT module content
  • Take a look at the trainee data analytics, management and reporting tool

The virtual demos will be conducted over Microsoft Teams and joining instructions are available by contacting Nicholas.

Foundation Fast Track e-learning programme

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

As part of the COVID-19 response a new programme was created for interim foundation Year 1 doctors who are being fast tracked into their Foundation Training.

This programme has been launched 53,161 times since it went live earlier this month with more than 4700 elfh accounts created.

The Foundation Fast Track elearning programme contains essential learning for Interim Foundation Year 1 (FiY1) doctors who are being fast tracked into their Foundation Training to support the workforce in responding to the pandemic.

The courses include a cut down version of the Statutory and Mandatory programme focusing on the key requirements for FiY1 doctors, and the Doctors in Training Induction scenarios, each of which contains a related assessment. Users will meet patients in each of the scenarios and follow their journeys. Each scenario covers relevant learning objectives and allows users to focus on key professional skills that they will need in their role as a Foundation Doctor.

The following courses from the Foundation learning programme are also included and are aimed at the key areas relating to the treatment of patients during the Coronavirus pandemic:

  • Professional capabilities 9: Recognises, assesses and initiates management of the acutely ill patient (FiY1)
  • Professional capabilities 11: Obtains history, performs clinical examination, formulates differential diagnosis and management (FiY1)
  • Professional capabilities 13: Prescribes safely
