e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) works in partnership with the NHS and professional bodies to support patient care by providing free, high quality e-learning for the training and education of the healthcare workforce across the UK.
Over a dozen e-LfH topics are also available to the wider public in open-access format, including sessions on modern slavery, dementia, and the two featured here: Child Sexual Exploitation and Perinatal Mental Health. Sessions are designed and built to be engaging and interactive, and use high quality images, video, audio and animation to help users understand and retain knowledge. Content is presented using a variety of templates such as ‘real-life’ scenarios, case studies and ‘knowledge bites’.
Child Sexual Exploitation
This single e-learning session provides an introduction to Child Sexual Exploitation for all clinical and non-clinical healthcare staff. It should take between 30-45 minutes to complete. Link: http://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/child-sexual-exploitation/open-access-session/
Perinatal Mental Health
These three e-learning modules developed by the Institute for Health Visiting, look at:
- Module One – Perinatal depression and other maternal mental health disorders
- Module Two – How to recognise perinatal anxiety and depression
- Module Three – Interventions for perinatal anxiety, depression and related disorders
Each module takes about 45 minutes to complete, and to complete the package there is a short video ‘Marias Story’, which tells of Maria Bavetta’s experience with perinatal OCD.
These are all high-quality modules, which has led to the e-LfH programme receiving many industry awards for best practice in e-learning, and the general public do not have to log in to study the open-access or sample modules. New topics are added regularly – to see the full range visit http://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/
