Geriatric Medicine (MCE)
The Geriatric Medicine elearning programme is a selection of online media to help health & care staff to provide better care for older people.
Developed in partnership with the British Geriatrics Society, the programme brings together a wide range of high-quality online learning resources, related to the care of older people, into one place.
The programme provides learners around the world, with information on the acute presentation of illness in older people, anaesthesia, dementia care and multi-professional care presented in the form of elearning sessions and podcasts.
The interactive, online learning sessions use a variety of case studies, guidance and learning frameworks, covering topics such as falls, dementia & Alzheimer’s disease, pressure ulcers and discharge planning.
The programme is made up of 11 modules, each consisting of number of sessions. Sessions take between 30 and 60 minutes to complete. The programme also includes a number of excellent podcasts covering a variety of topics. Other modules cover topics such as:
- Orthogeriatrics and peri-operative medicine in older people
- Carer Support and Care
- Elder Abuse / Safeguarding older adults
- Discharge Planning
- Pressure Ulcers / Skin Care
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.
