NHS Screening Programmes e-learning launched

5th April 2017

Health Education England has worked in partnership with Public Health England to transfer the NHS Screening Programmes’ e-learning modules on to the e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) online platform.

There are 11 NHS Screening Programmes in England. These programmes are commissioned and managed based on the recommendations provided by UK National Screening Committee.

Screening is a way of identifying people who are at higher risk of a health problem, so that treatment can be offered or information given to help them make personalised informed decisions about their care.

Healthcare professionals use e-learning as part of their training and continuing professional development and the new platform allows them to have all their NHS e-learning training in one place.

The e-learning, which was previously available on the CPD Screening website, is regularly updated to reflect national standards.

This e-learning offers comprehensive training for healthcare professionals who offer screening to:

  • pregnant women
  • newborn babies
  • adults (abdominal aortic aneurysm).

It does not currently include e-learning for Cancer Screening or Diabetic Eye Screening, but will in future.
