e-ELCA is a national e-learning programme developed by Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare in partnership with the APM. e-ELCA aims to enhance the training and education of the health and social care workforce so that well-informed high quality care can be delivered by confident and competent staff and volunteers to support people wherever they happen to be. It is available to health and social care workers including those who work in hospices. Content has been written by specialists in palliative care including many members of the APM. Dr Richard Kitchen is the current APM lead for the work.
The e-learning resources of e-ELCA are universally praised but the biggest criticism is that people don’t know about them. APM members, who have contributed hugely to the development of the 160 sessions, are also key to making e-ELCA used to it’s full potential.
