Updated Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) elearning programme is now available

Posted on: October 17th, 2023 by Nicola Kipling No Comments

Child development at the age of 2 – 2½ years is a key indicator of health, wellbeing and opportunities later in life. The Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) is an important tool which helps health practitioners to identify areas of developmental need in individual children at the age of 2 – 2.5 years old and can help provide the evidence needed for referrals to other services.

The Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) elearning programme has been developed in partnership with NHS England and the Department of Health and Social Care and is useful for all new practitioners that will be using the ASQ as part of the Healthy Child programme (HCP). The elearning provides existing practitioners with further information on the context and reason for using the ASQ in England and a refresher on best-practice in using the ASQ.

Menopause awareness training to support the NHS workforce

Posted on: March 8th, 2023 by Nicola Kipling No Comments

The NHS workforce is over 1.3 million strong, and 76.5% of the workforce (over 1 million) are women. Women between the ages of 45 and 54 who are likely to be going through the menopause transition make up 1 in 5 of the entire NHS workforce, over 260,000 women.

The Menopause Awareness elearning programme has been developed with NHS England to help colleagues provide a supportive working environment that champions the wellbeing of women and others affected by the menopause transition, so they thrive in the workplace.

This elearning is designed for all colleagues in the workforce. Whether you are a person transitioning through the menopause, or if you are looking for information to help you support a colleague.

The Menopause Awareness elearning session will give learners:

  • an overview of the menopause
  • the common symptoms associated with the menopause
  • scenarios which will help our people better understand the ways in which they can help support themselves and each other

For more information about the programme and to access the training today, please visit the Menopause Awareness programme page.

Updated and refreshed Five Ways to Wellbeing module

Posted on: September 21st, 2022 by Rebecca Tinnion No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) in partnership with the HEE Long Term Conditions and Prevention programme team are delighted to relaunch the Five Ways to Wellbeing module on the Making Every Contact Count (MECC) programme page.

Five Ways to Wellbeing is a standardised framework, containing a set of evidence-based actions to help improve people’s wellbeing. Originally developed in 2008 by the New Economics Foundation (NEF), Five Ways to Wellbeing is part of the wider MECC approach and encourages individuals to improve their physical and mental health and wellbeing through five acts:

  1. connect
  2. be active
  3. keep learning
  4. give
  5. take notice

Individuals who work across health, care, local authority, and emergency services may recognise the Five Ways to Wellbeing framework for public health intervention.
This elearning module is designed to provide information on Five Ways to Wellbeing and support learners to use their public facing roles to improve population mental and physical health and wellbeing.

The recent update includes the addition of new case studies, and a wider review of content to ensure the elearning reflects latest policy and clinical practice.

Inspiring wellbeing through five simple steps, this module underpins existing MECC approaches by highlighting the importance of everyday interactions. On completion of the module, learners should be able to define the term “wellbeing” and appreciate the links between wellbeing and health.  Learners should also feel confident about using the Five Ways to Wellbeing framework to support their practice of MECC.
