Elearning for pharmacy practice and educational supervisors available
Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) with the University of East Anglia, De Montfort University and Keele University are delighted to launch new elearning sessions for pharmacy practice and educational supervisors.
The elearning sessions have been developed for those in the pharmacy sector who are involved in the training of others, ranging from supervising shadowing experiences, to having educational supervisory roles across a range of settings. This includes community pharmacies, primary care and health and justice pharmacy services.
These new resources aim to provide supervisors with the knowledge and skills needed to gain confidence and satisfaction from their practice and educational activities and enhance their contributions to the development of a highly skilled pharmacy workforce. It also aims to improve the learning experiences of trainees and their contributions to patient-centred care.
This programme currently includes 2 modules:
• Module 1, Core Skills: Introductory level topics relevant to practice and educational supervision. This module is recommended for all as an introductory module or to refresh existing knowledge
• Module 2, Enhanced Skills: A deeper learning approach to topics relevant to practice and educational supervision, providing context for specific programmes/learner groups. This module is recommended for practice and educational supervisors involved in specific regulated pharmacy training programmes and those who wish to develop their skills further
• The development of an 'Advanced Skills' module will be determined upon the workforce need.
Each module takes approximately 2 hours to complete and covers a range of topics with increasing complexity. Learners are asked formative questions to enable interaction and test their knowledge.
To learn more, please visit the pharmacy practice and educational supervision training programme page.

How to promote the Crisis Tools
We are delighted to announce that we have been working with colleagues at Healthy Teen Minds to develop and launch a suite of mental health crisis learning resources.
These resources have been designed by young people, working with professionals too, allowing you to hear directly from them about what helps in a moment of crisis. The tools complement existing training and education. They aim to build an individual’s confidence to have effective conversations and provide personalised support to a young person in a mental crisis.
The short Crisis Tools learning guides we have supported are:
• What you need to know
• How to start the conversation
• So you want to talk about risk?
• How to wrap things up
We need to ensure this learning resource gets to the front line, especially to those who work in health and care, educational and emergency response settings.
Please can you share these online tools far and wide with your networks? We have provided suggested copy for your communication channels and the intended audiences we are hoping to reach. We will be actively promoting on social media channels too, so please do support us with this by sharing if you can.
Also, as part of the build up to this year’s World Mental Health Day, you can join us on 7 October 2021 for the Healthy Teen Minds online Crisis Tools celebration event.
Finally, but most importantly, we would like to extend a special thanks to the young advisors who have co-produced and co-led on the curation and development of these resources. They have all selflessly shared their lived experience of mental health crisis, so we can better understand what support young people want and need to hear in a mental health crisis.
