Enhancing your personal development

The KHP Learning Hub is home to a huge range of high-quality educational courses and resources to help you improve your knowledge and progress your career development – open to all KHP staff and students for free. We have outlined below some of the most popular courses currently available:

Mindfulness 4 All (M4ALL)M4All

To support frontline staff, KHP started the Mindfulness for All (‘M4ALL’) programme in March 2020. A popular daily meditation practice was offered to help us deal with a situation that could often feel overwhelming. As staff welcomed this offer, KHP later moved to a weekly live meditation program and opened the program up to all; staff and members of the public alike.

A large selection of relaxing meditative videos can be accessed on the Learning Hub covering a range of topics, such as stress awareness, personal growth, and dealing with distress in the word.

Live meditation sessions also take place every Monday between 8.30am and 9am - If you would like to be included on the regular invite list for these sessions then please contact carl.nwabudike@slam.nhs.uk

Functional Neurological Disorder (FND)FND Learning Hub

Functional neurological disorder (FND) is very common, both in outpatient and acute settings, but health professionals often lack confidence in managing it. Dr Biba Stanton, Consultant Neurologist, King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust has developed a self-paced course to teach clinicians:

  • Why we use the term functional neurological disorder;
  • A positive approach to diagnosis in FND;
  • How to explain the diagnosis of FND to patients.

The course is aimed at beginners and can be completed 100% online. Access the course for free here.

Understanding dementiaDementia Learning Hub

As dementia becomes increasingly common among older patients and service users, it’s important for all healthcare staff to have a basic understanding of the typical symptoms of dementia and how to meet the needs of people with dementia while providing treatment or support for other conditions.

This course provides an introduction to dementia — explaining the typical symptoms people with dementia experience and how to provide care in a way that meets their needs. It was developed by the Dementia Training Centre - a collaboration between South London and the Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and King's College London's Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience.

The course is aimed at clinical support workers, but also offers an accessible introduction to dementia for any other healthcare professional. It includes many case examples, self-test and reflective exercises. Learn more here.
