Implementation of Microsoft HoloLens for Placement Expansion

The Clinical Placement Expansion Project started at East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust (ELHT) in March 2021. The Trusts put forward a bid to Health Education England (HEE) for involvement in developing and expanding placement capacity across Allied Health Professionals (AHPs), Nursing and Midwifery by using digital solutions. The Trust have been successful in receiving the funding from HEE and the main aim of the project was to purchase four mixed reality headsets (HoloLens2).

Evidence Briefs

Produced by Health Education England's (HEE) Knowledge Management team, Evidence Briefs provide an overview of evidence from published reports, peer-reviewed journals, case studies, and much more. They cover key broad topics related to workforce and education in the NHS. They provide evidence-based background and context, encourage the use of available evidence throughout a piece of work, and prompt further discussion.

The complete list of briefs are available to download below, with more being added on a regular basis.

 

Critical Care’s Adaptation of “What Matters to You?” Conversations

Since its inception in Norway in 2014, “What Matters to You?” Day has grown into an international phenomenon. Two years after its launch, Scotland was the only other country in the world to join Norway in the ground-breaking initiative. Since 2016, 41 countries have embraced the day. On the 6th June 2019, Wirral University Teaching Hospital’s (WUTH) Critical Care department joined in with the conversation.

Effective Networks

This eWIN Hot Topic outlines what the evidence says about leading and participating in effective networks in health and care environments. It will look at what is meant by a network and the difference between networks and communities of practice; what should be considered when starting a new network (and how to make it a successful one) and the potential pitfalls to avoid. It will also cover network leadership and explore the role technology plays in supporting networks to work across boundaries and organisations.

Human Book Club for Healthcare Learners

A Human Book Club event was held to help student nurses and Trainee Nursing Associates
gather evidence for the communication section of their portfolios. The Human Book Club
provided an opportunity for healthcare learners to get a better understanding of how an
individual’s culture, social identity and expressed beliefs impact on the choices they make
about their care and treatment.
