Male Urinary Catheterisation Simulation - An Introduction

Fri, 2015-01-23 11:48 -- fatima.almeda

The use of Simulation is supported in both the strategic  and academic approach of HEEM. There is evidence to show that it can supplement and support clincial skills learning. (Hansen et al 2011, Todsen et al 2013)

This module aims to look specifically at techniques for Male Urinary Catheterisation. The entire process including including preparation and equipment checks is included in some of the videos. There are further links to modules that give a detailed study of urinary catheterisation.

e-learning for Medical Problems in Pregnancy (e-LfH)

Wed, 2014-07-30 10:12 -- fatima.almeda

Every year a small number of women in the UK die in pregnancy or the puerperium. 50 years ago the main causes of maternal death were obstetric problems such as postpartum haemorrhage. Now, however, the main causes of maternal death are medical complications rather than obstetric and include cardiac problems, neurological disease, sepsis and thromboembolism (CMACE 2011). In this most recent report, substandard care was identified as a contributor in many cases.

The project covers the theoretical knowledge required prior to undertaking hands-on training in basic echo and lung ultrasound in intensive care. This includes the physics of ultrasound, anatomy and basic views, left and right ventricular function, life-threatening pathologies, basic lung ultrasound and some of the limitations and pitfalls that may be encountered. The intended audience is intensive care and acute medicine doctors, anaesthetists and clinicians interested in assessment of the critically ill patient.

Medicines Management (e-learning module)
