To support staff being redeployed into critical care during the pandemic, the London Transformation and Learning Collaborative (LTLC) has worked in partnership with Health Education England’s Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team to develop a range of resources.
As part of this work the LTLC has created a toolkit, compiling guidance and resources to support interprofessional cross-skilling and safe, rapid redeployment of the workforce. The toolkit has been added to the Learning Hub to make it easily accessible to members of the health and care workforce throughout the UK: A Toolkit for rapid cross-skilling, supporting safe redeployment.
The toolkit has been developed to highlight the most important skills for non-registered support staff to hold before starting work on a critical care unit, as identified by senior critical care nurses and educators across London. The resources in the toolkit are also relevant for registered support clinicians, healthcare scientists and paediatric staff.
The toolkit includes hyperlinks and QR codes to take users straight to the core content.
Other complementary resources, developed as part of the LTLC, have been added to the e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) Hub and more detail is available on the LTLC page on the e-LfH website.
The LTLC was established in 2020, aimed at increasing the capacity of the critical care workforce in London to help prepare for a second surge in COVID-19 cases in the capital.
The Learning Hub is a digital platform that provides easy access to a wide range of education and training resources for the health and care workforce. Organisations and users can contribute and share resources for those in health and care to access.
It only takes a few minutes to contribute a resource to the Learning Hub. You can sign into the Learning Hub either using an e-Learning for Healthcare username and password or NHS OpenAthens user account details or by creating an account on the Learning Hub and using those details. Select “Contribute a new resource” and populate the form with details including the resource title, type, description and author details.
