Kerry Crawley MCPara, On-line CPD Lead for the College of Paramedics talks about the exciting new CPD project, which is on the way for College members.
This Spring, the College of Paramedics is due to launch ‘Phase 1’ of a suite of Continuous Professional Development modules on Health Education England’s eLearning for Health platform. These online modules have been developed specifically for the modern paramedic with the aim of providing ‘bite-sized’, interactive learning experiences that take about 15 minutes to complete and function well on a variety of mobile devices. ELearning for paramedics will be available free to all College of Paramedics members and recorded for your future reference on the eLearning for Health Hub.
The modules have had editorial support from expert paramedics, with technical support from the eLearning of Health Instructional Design team and steering group oversight from the Association of Ambulance Service Chief Executives, the National Educational Network for Ambulance Services, the College of Paramedics’ Educational Advisory Committee and the Forum for Higher Education in Paramedic Science.
The first five modules due to be launched at the College of Paramedics’ National Conference in May will be:
Each module consists of up to ten individual sessions that should each take no more than 15 minutes to complete. Each session will include the same sections:
We encourage you to access these when they are released and really hope this platform proves to be a valuable element of your professional development, or simply as a means of refreshing your knowledge or testing yourself.
