New video group clinics e-learning programme available

Posted on: March 2nd, 2021 by Rachel Gowland No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) in partnership with NHS England and NHS Improvement, ELC Works and Redmoor Health are delighted to launch their new Video Group Clinics (VGC) programme; which includes new elearning resources and a toolkit developed for GPs, practice nurses, health and care professionals in community settings and care homes.

The elearning resources support the introduction of video group clinics in different settings by providing learners with an overview and working knowledge of video group clinics and consultations: including the benefits, delivery principles and outcomes of introducing this practice.

Why implement video group clinics?

Combining group consultation and video clinics aims to build a sense of community and facilitate peer support, while enabling health and care teams to stay connected in supporting those with long term conditions, who are in need of regular reviews and are vulnerable to infection. Video group consultations and clinics can be delivered in a single session, or as part of an extended programme of care and support.

About the elearning resources

  • Session 1: Considering video group clinics.
  • Session2: setting up a video group clinic.
  • Educationalvideos and animations.
  • Dedicated video group clinics toolkit.

Learners are required to complete elearning session 1 before session 2, which has been designed to build and assess knowledge about the VGC competency.

The sessions take approximately 20 minutes to complete, and learners can expect educational videos and animations. Certificates are available after the completion of each session.

Additional support

There are a number of additional resources available to those interested in video group clinics, including the Digital First Primary Care and Primary Care Networks within the FutureNHS collaboration platform (sign-up/log-in needed) and the Total Triage elearning which is based on the Total Triage blueprint.
