Published: 30 March 2017 Ezine

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has added thousands of e-learning sessions to the list of OpenAthens resources. 

OpenAthens is a service that allows people to access a series of online resources free of charge with just a single OpenAthens account.

HEE e-LfH works in partnership with the NHS and professional bodies to support patient care by providing e-learning to educate and train the health and social care workforce. Programmes include:

• Image Interpretation – interactive training to enhance interpretation skills

• Advanced Radiotherapy – exploring advanced techniques through practical exercises

All content is nationally quality-assured and available 24/7. The online training sessions enhance traditional learning, support existing teaching methods and provide a valuable reference point. The sessions are also CPD Now endorsed.

The OpenAthens eligibility criteria, which are managed by NICE, cover anyone working directly with NHS patients and anyone working directly on the development and/or delivery of training materials for either NHS staff or NHS patients within an organisation that provides NHS-commissioned care or commissions care for NHS patients in England. This includes charities, voluntary organisations, local authorities, arm’s length bodies and healthcare students.
