Updates to End of Life Care for All (e-ELCA) e-learning programme

A new session and two new learning paths have been added to the End of Life Care for All (e-ELCA) e-learning programme.

The Registered Nurse Verification of Expected Adult Death session aims to highlight the processes and responsibilities of a registered nurse when verifying an expected adult death. It is designed to support the Special Edition of Care After Death: Registered Nurse Verification of Expected Adult Death (RNVoEAD) guidance (Hospice UK 2020).

This session has also been added to the e-ELCA Resources to support staff with difficult conversations and end of life care learning path which was created to support staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Two new learning paths have also been added to the e-learning programme.

The e-ELCA Learning Path for General Practitioners with an Interest in Palliative and End-of-Life Care  has been designed for GPs who are looking to develop and maintain their palliative care knowledge. It will also be useful for GP trainees completing a placement in a hospice. It was designed with reference to sessions in the End of Life Care module in the e-GP programme and provides supplementary knowledge to this.

The e-ELCA Renal Learning Path is designed to support health care professionals involved in the care of patients with advanced chronic kidney disease. It includes sessions which focus on the trajectory of illness and planning for the future, discussions around specific interventions, medical management and symptom control.
