e-Learning for Healthcare
Endorsed By
Department of Health, NHS England

This e-learning resource about caring and compassion is designed to support the work of all nurses, midwives and care staff in the NHS and social care. Compassion in Practice will consider the theory of compassion and apply compassionate care through a new model of the compassionate mind.

Care and compassion sounds as if it should be an innate ability, however, the theory and practice underpinning these values is often multi-faceted and can be difficult to understand. These e-learning sessions will help you to re-evaluate your practice and to challenge your fundamental beliefs and value systems. They will offer insights and suggestions to support you in improving care and compassion in your practice.


High-quality learning on compassion in care

The programme focuses on six main areas of action:

  • helping people to stay independent, maximising wellbeing and improving outcomes
  • working with people to provide a positive experience of care
  • delivering high-quality care and measuring the impact
  • building and strengthening leadership
  • ensuring the right staff with the right skills are in the right place
  • supporting positive staff experiences

These areas are all aligned to the UK health and social care sector’s ‘Vision for Nurses, Midwives and Care Staff’, although the themes are relevant to healthcare professionals globally.

Written by a multidisciplinary team from across the UK, the programme has been developed by the UK Department of Health and NHS England.


24/7 access online

The Compassion in Practice e-learning course is available online so you can study at home, in the workplace or even on the move.



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.
