e-Learning for Healthcare – What’s next?
As part of the further development of the Learning Hub, existing e-LfH content will be migrated to the Learning Hub. As well as the learning content being migrated, users’ accounts will also be transferred to ensure learning records are preserved to provide continuity for learners and employers. It is important to highlight that all the existing functionality that users experience on the e-LfH Hub will be retained and, in fact, accessing e-LfH content via the Learning Hub will provide additional features and functionality for learners. The migration of e-LfH content to the Learning Hub supports the ways of working and the future direction of the TEL team’s work; keeping platforms up to date using the latest technology and providing easy access to many other resources and resource types to further support education and training for the health and care workforce.

Learning Hub

The Learning Hub – Rapid training and education resources for critical care
To support staff being redeployed into critical care during the pandemic, the London Transformation and Learning Collaborative (LTLC) has worked in partnership with Health Education England’s Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team to develop a range of resources.
As part of this work the LTLC has created a toolkit, compiling guidance and resources to support interprofessional cross-skilling and safe, rapid redeployment of the workforce. The toolkit has been added to the Learning Hub to make it easily accessible to members of the health and care workforce throughout the UK: A Toolkit for rapid cross-skilling, supporting safe redeployment.
Other complementary resources, developed as part of the LTLC, have been added to the e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) Hub and more detail is available on the LTLC page on the e-LfH website.


Oral Health for General Practice
Oral health as a brief intervention is available via e-Learning. The module presents the learning through a variety of media and promotes a flexible, convenient and interactive way of assimilating the information. Video content complements  interactive audio/visual demonstrations of  the concepts within the training. These demonstrations are backed up with supporting information and links to other resources or those wanting to investigate specific topics further. The module is broken down into short  sections. Progress is tracked, making it easy to navigate content, digest information, and resume where you left off should you need to pause your learning.
