eLearning: Easy does it in the Library

keyboard handIn case you weren’t aware, you can now use the Library computers to complete all your elearning topics.  The Safeguarding module has been widely used for the last couple of weeks and it’s pretty straight forward, providing you get some of the basics right.

  1. Help your self to a complementary cup of tea or coffee
  2. Choose one of the drop in computers and make yourself comfortable
  3. Don’t put yourself under pressure -give yourself plenty of time to complete it and don’t worry!
  4. Make sure you have your username eg: 209STEVENSJ01 and your password – remember that the password is case sensitive so make sure the CAPS LOCK key isn’t on.
  5. If you’re not sure how to reach the topic you need, ask a member of the Library staff to assist you.
  6. Make sure you read every page – if you miss any stages the program will be marked ‘incomplete’
  7. Print off your certificate or proof of completion if required

Mission accomplished!

Everyone’s responsibility: Doctors ‘should not fear raising child abuse alarm’

Doctors should not fear reporting suspicions about child abuse, the regulator of the profession says.

The General Medical Council said high-profile cases and a concern about complaints by parents were deterring doctors from raising the alarm.

But it said new guidance it was issuing should give medics the confidence to act when they needed to.

The guidance stresses the need for doctors to consider the risk of child abuse in every case they see.

It also details when it is appropriate for doctors to share information about patients.
