BAPRAS continues to sponsor e-LPRAS, the e-Learning project for Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, which was established by Mrs Sarah Pape and is now led by Mr Richard Cole and Mr Dimitris Reissis.
Working in partnership with BAPRAS and NHS Health Education England e-learning for Healthcare, the umbrella organisation for the project, eLPRAS provides e-learning to educate and train the health and social care workforce
The project is nearing completion, and there are currently over 200 volunteers working on developing content for the individual sessions but more volunteers would be very welcome. This is a curriculum-based project for plastic surgeons written by plastic surgeons and allied experts to aid training, continuing professional development and revalidation. All grades of trainees, staff grades and consultants are welcome to help with the project. If you would like to be involved, please contact the project team at firstname.lastname@example.org
e-LPRAS has a comprehensive curriculum, which is broken up into individual topic areas (called modules). The content, including video and animations, is hosted by the e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) platform. All NHS-employed plastic surgeons can register with e-LfH free of charge and use the sessions that are already available. Sessions are uploaded as they are completed, so if the topic you are interested in isn’t online, check back in the future (or volunteer to write it).
Check out the website at www.e-LfH.org.uk.
We have an excellent team of instructional designers, led by Stephen Gibbons, who has been involved with e-LPRAS since the start and has a broad experience of other e-LfH projects and e-learning in other contexts. The IDs ensure the highest possible quality and provide full support and guidance to authors throughout the writing process. Mr Richard Cole, together with the BAPRAS SIAG Leads, ensures that the content is appropriate, up to date, and referenced and linked to relevant and related learning resources.
