Project Description

NHS e-learning – Direct Observation of Professional Skills

This e-learning video is one of four in a module we produced for the NHS e-training for trainers website.

The videos demonstrate the assessment stages for DOPS. DOPS is designed to help trainee doctors learn more about the procedure they’re demonstrating and understand how they can improve and develop their skills.

The e-learning videos help trainers to develop the correct assessment skills to carry out a DOPS. Filming took two days in a training ward at Chichester hospital.

Sightline has, so far, developed 50 video based e-learning modules for training NHS doctors and pharmacists. The modules are installed on the NHS e-training for trainers (etft) website, which we also designed and developed. The e-learning is for NHS practitioners who are engaged in training and assessing foundation doctors and pharmacists working hospitals and general practice. The etft website became a leading online resource for this purpose across the UK: www.etft.co.uk.

The video modules have been used by thousands of  so successful that they have now been transferred into Health Education England’s Educator Hub – which has become the central resource for e-learning across the UK. Visit the Education Hub website page.
