Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with the Association for Palliative Medicine to update 5 existing sessions within the End-of-Life Care for All (e-ELCA) elearning programme.
These sessions are:
Introduction to e-learning for end-of-life care – this session introduces learners to the End-of-life Care for All elearning programme (e-ELCA) with a message from the programme’s new clinical lead, Dr Sarah Hanrott.
Registered nurse verification of expected adult death – this session has been updated with the latest guidance document for registered nurses who wish to extend their role to include verifying an expected adult death.
Recognising and managing malignant spinal cord compression – this session now features guidance on adopting a spinal bowel regime for management of malignant spinal cord compression.
Symptom management in people with learning difficulties – this session has now removed information specific to mental health patients as this topic will now be covered in a separate elearning session, available later this year.
Talking about death and dying – this session explores the cultural issues surrounding death and dying in the UK and offers guidance on how to talk about this often-difficult subject.
More information is available on the End-of-Life Care for All (e-ELCA) programme page.
