New eLearning Modules for IMTs

Four new online eLearning modules have been launched on the eLfH page for IMTs about developing skills in an outpatient setting. Doctors in training in Bath and Swindon worked hard to develop three dynamic, engaging and interactive sessions for the benefit of foundation doctors and a session for outpatient trainers too. Learning materials can be accessed here:

A team of Severn trainees have also developed a new list of all the available eLearning materials for IMTs on the eLfH site: This comprehensive list is a helpful resource for facilitating access to IMT suitable learning materials, as a means of evidence-basing personal development in each CiP area, with resources that can be linked to the ePortfolio. The new IMT eLfH page also includes access to exemplar videos for procedural skills.

If you have ideas for learning materials, please contact Tina Mehta on
