November 2nd 2020 – November 13th 2020

Dear colleagues,

Welcome back to the NNUH Education Bulletin. The aim is to raise awareness of lectures, tutorials, courses and other CPD activities to help with training and appraisals, as well as to stimulate interest. If you would like to advertise any sessions via the bulletin, please email me and I’ll happily include them.

With the new lockdown, online sessions will take on a renewed importance. If you would like to organise a teaching session open to colleagues across different departments, you can use the ‘NNUH Education’ Team on Microsoft Teams. I have tried to add all doctors in the Trust to widen access to educational opportunities.

Also be sure to look at the NANIME website, https://nanime.nnuh.nhs.uk/, where you can find key contacts for education and training in the NNUH, as well as information on professional support and wellbeing.

For information about courses run by NANIME, including ATLS, MRCS revision and IMPACT, please check out https://nanime.nnuh.nhs.uk/training/courses/. Note that, in light of the new lockdown starting on November 5th, some of these opportunities may be cancelled or rescheduled.

Upcoming courses in the next two months include:

  • Introduction to Leadership for Emerging and Aspiring Doctors (iLEAD – 4 half day courses starting November 6th 2020 – Course Administrator Sophie Hudson)
  • Plaster Course (aimed at Core Surgical Trainees) – (Half day course running on November 13th 2020, and again on November 20th 2020)
  • Developing Your Portfolio (aimed at Core Surgical Trainees) (Half day course on November 19th 2020)
  • EoE Trauma and Orthopaedic Course for CST1 and CST2 (Day-course, November 27th 2020)

Health Education East of England also has a calendar of events on its website, available here:
https://heeoe.hee.nhs.uk/calendar. Events of interest to trainees include:

Bridge, the new virtual learning environment for trainees in the East of England, is now up and running for a number of training programmes (though not all of them). There are lots of online courses with curriculum-relevant content. Most trainees should now have a login. If you don’t, get in touch with your local college tutor

Grand Rounds made a return last week, with a talk on Covid-19 by Dr Eleanor Mishra (Consultant Respiratory Physician). The talk was recorded, so if you missed it, you can listen to it here.

Finally, my podcast pick for this week. If you like to tune into a medical podcast, I can recommend The Resus Room, an evidence-based and guideline-focused podcast on Emergency Medicine topics. They brought out an excellent episode on toxidromes in September which is well worth a listen (I only got round to it yesterday). If you’d like to share any interesting podcasts, interviews or the like (medical or otherwise), let me know and I’ll publish them here.

All the best,

Dr Jon Miller
