The Scottish Government’s Technology Enabled Care (TEC) team with NHS Education for Scotland (NES) have developed an eLearning module.

This has been created to increase the awareness, knowledge, and confidence of the health and social care workforce to better understand the role of telecare in assessment and support planning.

The module takes around 45 minutes to complete and provides information and practice examples (including short videos) of how telecare can support outcomes focussed care options.

These options are personalised and can support individuals to live safely and independently in their own homes and at the same time provide reassurance to family and carers.

The module is hosted on NES’s Turas platform. If you have a Turas account, the module can be accessed via the following link (this link will take you away from our website).
