Supporting Paramedic Practice During COVID-19 is now available within the paramedics e-learning programme at https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/paramedics.

Comprised of interactive learning experiences that are accessible on different mobile devices, each session has been created to support the needs of paramedics during the ongoing pandemic.

Created by experienced paramedic e-learning authors for the College of Paramedics, this e-learning is aimed at paramedics and those involved in emergency response during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  The module consists of five sessions of varied lengths which learners are able to select individually, or complete as an entire module.
