Learning resource for completing e-discharge summaries

A new free learning resource, developed by the Royal College of Physicians’ Health Informatics Unit and the RCP Education department, is available now to support people who are using e-discharge summaries.

The e-discharge summary is a vital communication tool, but we need more training to support it.

The toolkit of materials was developed following a period of consultation to define the problems of writing quality discharge summaries and the educational needs to address them.

The learning resource is aligned with the PRSB standard for e-discharge summaries and supports hands-on training through discussion and practical exercises, alongside a self-assessment checklist and an online audit tool.

The resource was successfully piloted in six trusts and is now available for free and you can download it here.
