Each of the modules should take no more than 20 minutes to complete and can be ‘dipped into’ for reference, or completed to obtain a certificate.

You can access Health Education England e-Learning for healthcare programmes with your NHS OpenAthens account. More information can be found in this blog post.

The current modules in the e-Learning programme are:

Three modules to enable users to assess their current level of skill in literature searching, find out more about the resources available and how to get started with planning a search.
