BMA Webinar - Options after FY2
My name is Andrew Harborne and I’m a medical registrar.
I’m currently working with the BMA to deliver webinars on options after Foundation Year 2 training. You might be familiar with these talks as they are normally delivered in person by BMA reps to trainees on career days. Due to recent restrictions these have now moved online.
I am hosting a webinar including the BMA and other useful talks for Foundation Doctors on the 19th May. Please see the following sign up link (https://andyharborne01.wufoo.com/forms/qkku7qw1kv2pyz/)
Every best wish,

Cleaning for confidence: keeping NHS premises safe and clean for patients
This e-learning programme was developed in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) and NHS England and NHS Improvement (Midlands).
The programme outlines the fundamentals of cleaning and infection prevention and control to everyone within the NHS family, with the aim of stopping the spread of Coronavirus and other infections. The public-facing element of the campaign also aims to give confidence to patients and service users that NHS services remain safe to access during the pandemic and beyond.
Why is cleaning for confidence important?
- Keeping NHS premises safe and clean for our patients is a commitment that we all share, and it is something that has never been more important than right now.
- Every single person within the NHS family has a part to play in maintaining that commitment to keeping people safe.
- A clean workplace is our first and best defence in stopping the spread of COVID-19 and other infections.
About the Cleaning for Confidence programme
The Cleaning for Confidence e-learning programme was developed to build upon staff knowledge of the good cleaning practices, that can help to stop the spread of COVID-19 and other infections where they work, both in clinical and non-clinical settings.
The e-learning session takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and a certificate can be generated on completion of the e-learning.
Everyone who completes the Cleaning for Confidence programme will become a cleaning champion, having demonstrated their commitment to keeping colleagues, patients and their families safe each and every day.
How to access the e-learning
To learn more about the e-learning, visit the Cleaning for Confidence programme page.
You can also visit the NHS England and NHS Improvement website to find a comprehensive communication toolkit that makes it easy to adopt the cleaning for confidence campaign within your organisation.
Dear Foundation Doctors,
I'm one of the Foundation TPDs within the Yorkshire and Humber region.
As part of an ongoing project, I would like to understand more about fatigue and how this affects you as junior doctors and in turn relates to the safety of the care that we give to our patients.
If you wouldn't mind filling in this very short survey which will take 3 minutes to complete.
We are looking to present the results at a future foundation educational event.
Thanks in advance for your help

Psychiatry Clinical Simulation
Who? These sessions are for all foundation trainees.
What? We are running clinical simulation sessions in Psychiatry for foundation doctors over Microsoft Teams. These 1 hour sessions will be based around realistic and clinically relevant scenarios. There are three different scenarios to choose from.
Why? We hope these sessions will help you feel more confident managing common psychiatric presentations within your day to day jobs. The focus of the session is not on communication skills but instead is designed to be more practical – how to manage difficult situations on the wards when there is little senior help around. All the scenarios have been designed to help develop your Core Foundation Curriculum competencies.
To book: Please email email@example.com to book your place; stating which session you would like to be booked onto. Maximum of 10 places per session.

Acute Medicine for International Medical Graduates
Acute Medicine for International Medical Graduates is a one-day online workshop that aims to support international medical graduates and junior doctors, new to acute care practice in the NHS, with skills to enable confident management of acute medical patients through the use of a wide range of clinical case scenarios and interactive content. http://www.acutemedicineforimgs.eventbrite.com
Our Spring/Summer workshops will take place on the 15th & 16th of May and the 10th & 11th of July 2021. It allows for easy and safe attendance from anywhere in the UK because they are online, which also has the added advantage for doctors from abroad starting placements in August. They may wish to attend the workshop before they arrive in the UK.
Exerienced NHS consultants and medical educators have carefully curated the workshop, which focuses on supporting junior doctors and IMGs with applying clinical knowledge of acute medicine to the management of several acute cases including sepsis, acute coronary syndrome, acute asthma, diabetic ketoacidosis etc. We will also hone prescribing skills (intravenous fluids in AKI; fluids and insulin in DKA/HHS patients according to national guidelines) as well as rehearse skills in ECG and ABG interpretation.
