Health Education England (HEE)
The Coronavirus programme has been created by Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH).
It is freely available to colleagues working in the NHS, independent sector and social care. The resources are organised by role. Online registration is required to access the modules.
HEE has also produced a PowerPoint presentation setting out its support for care homes during COVID-19. The presentation includes local contact details, e-learning resources and comprehensive listings of HEE YouTube training and information videos for care homes, including sepsis and soft signs of deterioration.
Skills for Care
Skills for Care has created three packages of COVID-19 learning. Each package provides essential learning for the social care workforce, as follows.
- rapid induction programme, for new staff
- refresher training, for existing staff
- volunteer programme
Skills for Care have produced a number of resources that include practical ways for frontline care managers to help manage their time. It covers time management techniques and provides access to a new self-assessment tool. It also provides examples of how other managers have successfully been able to prioritise their time in response to COVID-19 and share their tips with others.
Creative Connection have produced a delirium awareness video. Acute infections like COVID-19 may be linked to delirium. Delirium is a condition that is sometimes misunderstood and like many conditions needs early intervention and management to enable a positive outcome. Typically delirium can affect a person post operatively and can be quite alarming to carers and loved ones. This video describes the condition and can be quite reassuring to those caring for a person who may have presented with delirium. If you are concerned about a person in your care please contact your local health care team for guidance.
