Welcome to your September 2022 update from the Foundation elearning programme. This month focuses on the assessment and treatment of people who are acutely unwell.  

The Foundation elearning programme has been developed specifically for Foundation doctors by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in partnership with Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh), and is approved by the UK Foundation Programme (UKFPO). 

The sessions listed below cover key areas in your curriculum on:   

FPC 1: Clinical Assessment 

FPC 2: Clinical Prioritisation 

FPC 3: Holistic Planning 

FPC 4: Communication and Care  

FPC 5: Continuity of Care 

The sessions can be used to enhance your competency in the assessment and management of a patient’s fluid status, the presentation and management of sepsis, and arterial blood gas sampling and interpretation. 


The Foundation programme has a range of other sessions that might help you. Please log in to the programme page to view more.  

You can sign on to the elearning with your login supplied by elearning for healthcare at any time during your foundation training.
