Armed Forces E-learning Programme

E-learning programme to support improved care for serving personnel, veterans and their families.

Nhs -england -logoHealth Education England e-Learning for Healthcare, with support from NHS England, has launched an e-learning programme for health and social care professionals to help increase understanding of the armed forces population and facilitate improved care and treatment.  The programme is split across three areas of NHS care for current serving personnel, the families of serving personnel and veterans, and for veterans.

Whilst many aspects of health need are the same as the general public, there are sometimes significant differences, particularly in relation to conditions attributable to service life and the impact upon families. These differences can be reflected in the way in which healthcare is delivered, the range and types of services provided and the long-term impact upon patients and families. 

The e-learning programme is designed to highlight both the similarities and differences to help health and social care personnel to understand the context of military life and how to appropriately respond to patient need.  Visit the e-LfH website to find out more.
