A new elearning programme has been developed for internal medicine training (IMT) trainees and trainers by Health Education England (HEE), elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh), the Severn Deanery and the Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board.
The programme includes new sessions on delivering outpatient care and outpatient training, applicable to many training programmes, but primarily aimed at internal medicine trainers and trainees. The sessions comprise the following topics:
- Managing patients in an outpatient clinic
- Resources for evidencing internal medicine training (IMT) capabilities in practice (CiPs)
- Procedural skills video resources from the NHS Lothian Mastery Skills Pathway
- An introduction to Internal Medicine Training
- How to optimise outpatient training
Within the ‘Managing patients in an outpatient clinic’ session trainees will learn about the delivery of high quality outpatient care, meeting the curricular requirements in this field, and adapting their skills for virtual clinics. A trainer’s session on ‘How to optimise outpatient training’ will support the development of skilled educators in delivering learning in an outpatient clinic environment.
For IMT trainees there is also a newly developed list of available resources within the programme relevant to the IMT CiPs, alongside links to the procedural skills videos created by the NHS Lothian Mastery Skills Pathway.
