Supporting patient flow. New elearning package available.

Caroline Poole (Deputy Clinical Director and Professional Head of Allied Health Professions (AHPs)) at NHS England & NHS Improvement has asked that you are all made aware of the following.

A new e-learning package is now available. This brings to life a series of Grab Guides launched last year to support people to stay in their own homes, where they want to be, by:

* avoiding spending unnecessary time in hospital
* avoiding unnecessary admissions to hospital
* reducing delays in discharging people home from hospital

The guides are intended for all staff working in allied health professions and nursing teams, including qualified and support colleagues. Please share widely with your teams; this is accessible to all NHS trusts including colleagues in social care and third sector. The e-learning can be accessed with any email address. Feedback is there is something new to learn for almost everyone, and as we embark on what is no doubt going to be another challenging Winter, this e-learning is really timely.

Please contact Caroline with any queries, feedback or requests for further information. T: 07712 549254
