Sir Bruce Keogh launches BAPRAS e-Learning Project

7th December 2011


The e-learning for plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery project, e-LPRAS, was officially launched by Prof Sir Bruce Keogh, NHS Medical Director at the BAPRAS Winter scientific meeting on Friday 2nd December 2011. This visionary educational project has been developed by BAPRAS in partnership with e-Learning for Healthcare, part of the UK Department of Health.

e-LPRAS is a comprehensive online learning resource covering the whole range of the plastic surgery speciality. It aims to support the training programme for plastic reconstructive and aesthetic surgery and to enhance the quality of care provided to patients. The bespoke project incorporates individual sessions written by plastic surgeons for plastic surgeons. The content is comprehensive, up to date and authoritative, peer reviewed and referenced. e-LPRAS is designed to blend with other sources of learning, including private study, journal reading, on-the-job training, attendance at formal courses and the acquisition of surgical skills.

The e-LPRAS curriculum will offer around 900 e-learning sessions covering a wide variety of topics including anatomy, pathology, surgical principles, clinical practice and professionalism. BAPRAS members can access the first set of sessions online now. More content will be released in batches throughout the course of the project.

All NHS employees (and equivalent staff in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland) and full members of BAPRAS can register to access the learning resources via the e-LfH website
