England: e-learning tools add to healthcare professionals’ skills

05 June 2019

New e-learning tools to boost healthcare professionals’ knowledge and skills in dealing with the biggest issues in public health have been launched by Public Health England (PHE).

The interactive tools offer bite-sized information on key issues, including antimicrobial resistance, physical activity, social prescribing, giving children the best start in life, and supporting those at risk of homelessness. They also offer practical advice about the different approaches in practice, and signposts to further information.

Professor Jamie Waterall, PHE deputy chief nurse, says: ‘With prevention a major priority under the NHS long term plan, it’s vital that every health and care professional has quick access to advice that will help them make the most difference through their everyday practice.’

A further 15 e-learning tools will be published over the coming year.
