In the current situation many of you may be concerned about your knowledge and skills in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic and a potential change from your normal role.

UHB has been looking at what education is required to support refresher training and upskilling for all staff with patient facing responsibilities and to welcome those new to our organisation. This MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) is also available to NHS organisations across the West Midlands. Our focus is to ensure that you have the knowledge and skills to enable you to be competent and confident in caring for your patients.
There will be lots of resources available here so look out for any which might be relevant to you.

We are extremely grateful for your help during these extraordinary times.
