January 2020 - Foundation eLFH update

Welcome to your January 2020 update about the Foundation e-learning programme that has been developed specifically for Foundation doctors by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) and is approved by UKFPO.

Do you need to complete parts of the curriculum on your e-portfolio which you do not cover in day-to-day practice? If so, why not try some of our free e-learning mapped directly to the Foundation Professional Capabilities (Training Outcomes) in the 2016 Foundation Curriculum.

The sessions in the e-LfH Foundation e-learning programme:

Professional Capability: 1 – Acts professionally and Professional Capability: 2 – Delivers patient-centred care and maintains trust.

The e-learning sessions explore the relationship between doctors and their patients and how to deliver effective patient-centred care. ‘Handling Complaints’ provides essential information about common factors leading to complaints, how to minimise these, the procedures involved and what your responsibilities are as a foundation doctor. The Mental Capacity Act (MCA) protects the right of vulnerable people and this group of sessions cover topics such as assessing capacity, consent, patient autonomy and safeguarding. You will also consider the multidisciplinary team (MDT) approach to healthcare in the hospital and patient support after discharge.
