e-Learning for Healthcare

ACUMEN, which covers all aspects of acute medical care, allows you to practise your skills in diagnosing and managing a whole host of conditions. It is aimed at clinical trainees specialising in acute medicine. The themes are relevant to trainees across the world.

Interactive training on emergency medicine 

The knowledge sessions, which have been written by practising clinicians from the UK, include many interactive features, such as videos and self-assessment exercises, to reinforce learning.

Relevant to clinical trainees globally

Using scenario-based exercises, you can practise your skills in managing various emergency medical situations in the safety of a virtual ward, with ‘patients’ experiencing symptoms from cardio-respiratory arrest through to breathlessness and chest pain. You can learn how to:

  • review a medical history
  • perform a virtual examination
  • create a management plan
  • review the patient outcomes

You can compare your performance with that of an expert clinician, helping you to identify any knowledge gaps.

eIntegrity programmes are developed by NHS Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare programme (HEE e-LfH). 

The programmes are high quality self-directed learning programmes.  They are designed to support training and CPD and are excellent resources alongside other traditional teaching methodologies.  They have been developed by the UK NHS for use in the NHS.  However, many of the programmes have international relevance, particularly the specialty training programmes which are often mapped to UK specialty training curricula.
