Transforming Learning Environments (TLE) - It Matters

This eWIN Case Study gives an overview of Transforming Learning Environments (TLE) events run in the North. Health Education England (HEE) working across the North West asked all Practice Education Facilitators (PEFs), Placement Development Managers (PDMs), Work Based Education Facilitators (WBEFs), and Skills for Health Academy North West to work collaboratively to transform the learning environment following an HEE event in 2015.

North West ESR BIG SIG

HEE working across the North West hosted the North West ESR BIG SIG (Special Interest Group) attended by over 90 representatives from NHS Trusts in the North West.   The NW ESR BIG SIG combines national and North West ESR updates with special interest groups for OLM (Online Learning Management), Self-Service, HR, Reporting, Finance & Payroll.

Please see below the links to access the presentations/updates given at the event.

‘Better at Home’ - simulated learning for parents and carers

The ‘Better at Home’ project was introduced to support transition to home for technology dependent children with complex health care needs by providing training and support to parents and unpaid carers.

Many of these children require complex medical interventions including tracheostomy, gastrostomy and children who are ventilator dependent. There were three elements to the project:
•    WellChild Parent Trainer Role
•    ‘Better at Home’ Simulation Suite
•    eLearning materials

Student Engagement Forum

At Bolton NHS Foundation Trust the students’ voice matters and as such it is high on the pre-registration team’s agenda.  The Trust has created a platform – Student Engagement Forum - for students to voice their views regarding issues that affect them.  The inaugural events were held in May and July 2016, the months when we had the highest numbers of students on placement at the Trust.

Enhancing Patient Safety through Multi-Disciplinary In Situ Simulation

In March 2015, the Simulation and Skills Centre team at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (BTH) commenced a multi-disciplinary in situ simulation patient safety programme. The premise for the programme was to identify latent risk, system issues and human factors within all working environments, across the organisation, which can compromise patient safety. The priorities for the patient safety programme were to address high risk areas (clinical and non-clinical) and causes of incidents, complaints and risks.
