Managing Covid-19 in Primary Care – e-learning and resources

Infection Control training materials for staff

NHS England have pulled together a suite of infection, prevention and control (IPC) training resources to help staff in healthcare settings. These can be found here.

Blue Stream Infection Control Modules Updated

The Infection Control (Clinical and Non-Clinical) modules have recently been offline for maintenance and have now been re-released on the eLearning suite. Following an annual review, there are many changes reflected in the clinical content. We recommend that, although current certificates remain valid, anybody requiring clinical infection control as part of their mandatory training should complete the module that is now available on the system. 

COVID-19 Staff Support Toolkit 

Blue Stream Academy have developed a new COVID-19 Staff Support Toolkit in response to the growing need for up-to-date and relevant guidance during this time.  The Toolkit covers important information surrounding the current pandemic, guidance on protecting yourself and others, plus organisational guidance to help with specific COVID-19-related changes.

This Toolkit is free of charge for all those working in health and social care and can be added to to Profiles by practice managers or system administrators.

E-learning for Health modules

There are some new e-learning resources, specifically for managing Coronavirus in Primary Care available on e-Learning for Health.

These resources include RCGP learning on: 
  • Coronavirus Introduction to Covid-19
  • Clinical management in Primary Care
  • Top 10 tips on what to do in Primary Care
  • Managing patients with chronic respiratory symptoms during a pandemic
  • Palliative Care
 E-learning modules are also available via the above link on PPE and Infection Prevention and Control.

There are a number of courses and training opportunities provided by the CCG and external partners for anyone working in GP practice.  Click on the relevant page link on the left to find out the training available to you.   

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

The monthly educational meetings in protected time are designed to bring at least some of your professional development back into the daytime.

Our aim is to provide you with high-quality learning and an opportunity to network with friends and colleagues, old and new.

Why attend? 

  • Consultant-led educational topics
  • Development workshop done in a speed-dating format in small groups
  • Direct feedback to the commissioners
  • Networking with colleagues
  • Fun and interactive
  • Prioritise education for the benefit of patients
  • Downloadable resources from the monthly events

We appreciate that a half day practice closure is not always feasible. However, if you cannot attend a particular event at Trinity Park, your practice can take advantage of part of the afternoon closure to do some in-house training. We also use the afternoon closures to support 'mandatory' training for your staff and arrange events as per our published timetables.

Happy learning!

Mental Health Education

Tuesday 25 May 2021, 7pm - 8.15pm via MS Teams

Children and Young People's Mental Health: We are delighted to welcome Drs Beth Moseley and Hope Westgate, Clinical Psychologists with the NSFT Psychology in Schools Team.

This is part of a series of FREE educational evenings on mental health and emotional wellbeing designed for primary care practitioners across Suffolk. We have developed a full Programme for 2021/22.

To allow more people to benefit from this teaching, all sessions have been recorded. The videos are accessible to any primary care staff (most do not need a password) and are great way of doing some online learning from home. Resources from each session are also available online.
