All about e-learning

Expanding e-LfH integration

From Saturday the 29th August, users of the Physician Trainee, RCEM Trainee and RCR Trainee roles will be able to view details of their e-LfH learning activities within NHS ePortfolios and associate these with curriculum items and other ePortfolio resources.

Users must first “link” their NHS ePortfolios and e-LfH accounts, providing authorisation for e-LfH to share data with NHS ePortfolios. If the user has already linked their NHS ePortfolios and e-LfH accounts whilst a Foundation Trainee, this link remains in place and need not be established.

Details of e-LfH learning activities will be added to NHS ePortfolios on a daily basis once an account has been linked, so please allow 24 hours after linking for activities to be displayed.

To link your account, or view e-LfH learning activities once an account has been linked, trainees should use the new top level menu item entitled “e-Learning”.
