New e-learning programme to support Mentorship for Prosthetists and Orthotists

Posted on: April 16th, 2018 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

A new elearning programme to support prosthetic and orthotic practitioners who educate and/or mentor both students and newly qualified colleagues has been developed.

The programme content has been informed by practitioners and is designed to help provide flexible work-based support to complement current learning. It comprises three 20-minute sessions: developing an effective mentor mentee relationship; providing effective feedback and supporting the mentee in difficulty.

Sessions are designed to be interactive and are suitable for any allied health professional who is new to mentorship, looking to update current skills or as pre-reading material prior to attending a face-to-face session.

The programme has been created in partnership with Health Education England (HEE), the University of Salford and The British Association of Prosthetists and Orthotists (BAPO).

The programme team is continuing to welcome feedback about the elearning programme via the elfh Hub.

To access the programme you may need to register for an OpenAthens account. To register for an OpenAthens account please visit: <> or for more information about accessing elfh resources via OpenAthens visit the elfh support page.
