Doctors in Training Induction Programme
Health Education England (HEE) have developed and launched a free, national online induction programme for doctors in training. It incorporates key relevant clinical topics which support doctors in training with the additional competences needed as part of their induction to provide high quality patient care.
The content is available as three ‘patient journey’ scenarios and each come with an assessment to confirm competence acquisition. Completing this content in advance allows Trust induction days to focus on welcome, orientation and key local learning; saving time and enhancing the experience. The competencies gained through this online induction package can be ‘passported’ for up to three years as the doctors in training move between Trusts.
The scenarios included in the programme cover the following topics:
- Scenario one – Blood Transfusion and Consent
- Scenario two – Safe Prescribing and Venous Thromboembolism (VTE)
- Scenario three – Mental Capacity Act and Death Certification.
Each scenario also covers the learning outcomes for Risk Management and Record Keeping, where relevant within the patient scenarios.
For more information on this programme, that is free for doctors in training to access, please visit: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/doctors-in-training-induction/
