e-Learning for Healthcare

The Foundation e-learning programme is a free e-learning resource for foundation doctors

The e-learning sessions are mapped directly to the Foundation professional Capabilities (Training Outcomes) in the 2016 Foundation Curriculum. They can be found from quick links on each line of the curriculum in the e-portfolio. The material has been developed by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in partnership with e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) and is approved by UKFPO.

 

Each session takes around 20 minutes to complete, designed to fit in with busy work/study schedules and can be used:

  • As a reference tool
  • To revisit topics to refresh learning
  • As directed preparation for a formal education session
  • To ensure coverage of aspects of the curriculum that are not often encountered in the work place

 

The Foundation e-learning programme is designed to underpin practical clinical experience and ensure the application of pre-existing knowledge in a safe manner.

The e-learning material is designed to enhance and blend with the existing teaching within Foundation schools.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • Safe Prescribing
  • Acute Illness
  • Nutrition
  • Safe Patient Care
  • Safeguarding Children
  • Blood Transfusion
  • Infection Control
  • Supervised Learning Events: mini CEX, CBD, MSF and DOPS
