The e-FACE e-Learning programme has just released the new medical skills in oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) module at the 2018 Junior Trainees Group (JTG) conference in Cambridge. The module was developed by the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (BAOMS) in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH).
The module is aimed at dental core trainees and junior trainees, and includes 21 sessions focused on a series of key topics such as: the unwell patient; practical prescribing and pharmacology; critical care; and tracheostomy management.
BAOMS trainee representative Nabeela Ahmed welcomed the e-learning initiative: “This is a great innovation and an excellent opportunity for all trainees to access key skills learning more easily online. This initiative that BAOMS developed provides real support and education benefits.”
Patrick Magennis, BAOMS Chair, said: “Good induction is an important patient safety issue. The work of Andrew Dickenson as lead and Aimee Rowe as module editor in building these modules and laying the foundation of future development has earned the gratitude of the specialty and those we care for. The new OMFS e-LfH lead Jason Green has really excellent work on which to build and follow.”
The sessions are available on the e-LfH Hub and will be available via the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) in early 2018.
