2. New Resources

New e-LfH programmes

All Our Health

A series of new e-learning sessions, called All Our Health, aims to improve the knowledge, confidence and skills of health and care professionals in preventing illness, protecting health and promoting wellbeing have been developed. The sessions offer bite-sized information on a range of key public health issues that health and care professionals may face.

Topics and issues include:

  • cardiovascular disease prevention,
  • adult obesity
  • antimicrobial resistance physical activity

Additional sessions will be developed throughout 2019 – 2020.
To access the new e-learning sessions visit: www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/all-our-health/.

Work and Health programme

The new Work and Health e-learning programme helps healthcare professionals to recognise the value in talking to patients about work. Good work is crucial to good health – in fact, unemployment increases the risk of early death by 63%. Healthcare professionals can play a key role in helping patients to improve their health outcomes by remaining in or returning to work.
For more information about the e-learning programme and details of how to access it visit: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/work-and-health/

Place of Birth programme

This e-learning programme focuses on the different place of birth options for healthy, pregnant women who are at low risk of complications. It consists of two e-learning sessions to support discussions with healthy, low-risk women about the safety, intervention and transfer rates for the different options for place of birth. All the supporting materials for this programme have been written by subject specialists and experts in this field.

The e-learning programme is available on the e-LfH Hub, the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) and via AICC links.

Webinars

Open-source Learning: What you need to Know – 24 April 2019 – 2:00 pm ET  (7.00 pm BST)

As decentralisation, openness, sharing, and collaboration become the new norm in many organisations, the idea that anyone can share their expertise broadly, and that individuals and teams can access and build on each other’s know-how perfectly encapsulates this concept of ‘open-source learning’ perfectly.

Conferences/Workshops

Artificial intelligence: the potential impact on the work of the HR function – London – 2 May 2019, 13:30 – 17.00

AI offers the possibility of profoundly affecting the work of the HR function. It may streamline transactional work, speed up recruitment, allow new forms of training and reinvigorate reward and performance management, etc. However, there are serious risks to be considered in technological adoption. These range from data security through opaque decision making processes to unethical design. We need to confront these challenges and find solutions if we are to optimise the use of AI without facing employee or legal objections, or poor business outcomes. This requires a clear sighted view of why AI is being used and how it can best be managed, avoiding the hype and the seductive promises of over optimistic sales pitches of technology providers.
