The End-of-Life Care For All (e-ELCA) elearning programme is now available for everyone to access.
Developed by Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) in partnership with the Association for Palliative Medicine, the programme features over 170 resources and 30 learning paths for doctors, nursing staff, medical students, healthcare assistants, admin staff, and volunteers, supporting individuals who are approaching the end of life and their families.
Previously this programme was only accessible on the elfh Hub for individuals with an NHS email address, but wider access means everyone, regardless of their employment status, can access this vital information and advice on how best to offer end-of-life care.
To date, there are more than 73,000 active users of the programme and since it launched in 2009, there has been more than 1.2 million sessions launched. Usage on the programme has trebled since the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please note, the programme covers sensitive topics including death, dying, the different stages of end-of-life and bereavement which may be distressing to some learners.
