e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH)

Log in with OpenAthens here.

e-LfH is a Health Education England Programme in partnership with the NHS and relevant Professional Bodies providing high quality e-learning resources free of charge for the training of the NHS workforce across the UK, including the Doctors in Training (DiT) induction e-learning programme.

The online training resources in the e-LfH Hub enhance traditional learning, support existing teaching methods and provide a valuable reference point. They are designed and built to be engaging and interactive, using quality images, video, audio and animation to help trainees learn and retain knowledge. Content is presented using various templates such as ‘real-life’ scenarios, case studies and ‘knowledge bites’.

If you have previously created an e-LfH account, you can link it to your OpenAthens login so you won’t lose any of your existing e-learning. If you are new to  e-LfH, the Hub will create an account for you and link that new account to your OpenAthens login details.
