e-Learning for Health has recently launched two new resources which will both be of interest to paramedics:  

Population Wellbeing Portal

Public Health is a topic which has become increasingly important for paramedic education and practice, and there is a great deal that the paramedic profession can contribute to the Public Health agenda.  If you are new to this topic, or want to know more, visit the Population Wellbeing Portal which Health Education England (HEE) has developed along with Public Health England (PHE), the Academy for Public Health for London and Kent, Surrey and Sussex and the Faculty of Public Health.  See https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/population-wellbeing-portal/

The Portal offers free e-learning resources, training and education in population health, wellbeing and prevention. The Portal provides a central location for free training and education resources relating to the health and wellbeing of the public including links to e-learning, toolkits, videos, webinars and various publications. Whatever your involvement with the public, these resources will support you in expanding your knowledge and skills to enable you to influence the health of the population.   The Population Wellbeing Portal brings together material from multiple sources. This includes resources from HEE, PHE, the Academy for Public Health for London and Kent, Surrey and Sussex, the Faculty of Public Health and many others.  It links with All Our Health, PHE’s framework of evidence to guide healthcare professionals in preventing illness, protecting health and promoting wellbeing.


MindEd is a free, online learning programme for anyone involved in the mental wellbeing and care of children and young people in the UK (https://www.minded.org.uk) It was developed by a consortium of partner organisations including the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, British Psychological Society, Royal College of Nursing, Royal Pharmaceutical Society, National Children’s Bureau, Young Minds, BACP, and funded by the Departments of Health and Education and Health Education England. The e-learning content has been written and edited by leading experts from the UK and internationally; more information here: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/minded/  For paramedics this is a great resource to deepen your understanding of mental health issues in young people.  It complements and extends the learning about Mental Health for paramedics produced by the College of Paramedics.  See https://portal.e-lfh.org.uk/myElearning/Index?HierarchyId=0_36790&programmeId=36790
