Renal e-learning for Health project “Kidn-e”

Dr Sue Carr, Education and Training Committee Chair informed the Trustees that funding has been withdrawn from the Renal e-learning for Health project  – “Kidn-e”

Dr Carr commented:

“This is very disappointing for us all to hear as we were successful in getting the funding in competition and had already done 6 months work on setting up the framework etc and many colleagues had volunteered to take part as content writers and module editors.

All elFH projects have been terminated and they are only maintaining access to existing e-learning sessions. The contracts of all technical staff required to make new content have been terminated.

It’s a shame that education is often the first thing to be cut.”
