Essential Knowledge Update & Challenge Programme Wins GOLD!

EKU Programme Wins Gold

In October 2014, the RCGP Essential Knowledge Update and Challenge Programme won the Gold Award in the Best e-learning Project in the most competitive sector (third sector). The judges were impressed with the clear and effective strategy of involving the primary care audience, its great results and the content of this ground-breaking e-learning resource. 'This is a great all round project which is having a huge and immediate effect on the working lives of General Practitioners.'

Over 28,000 primary care professionals have accessed the programme which offers 385 eLearning modules, screencasts, podcasts and 700 self-assessment tests, all available on the RCGP e-Learning website.

The programme has been voted as one of the most valued membership offerings by the College Members which enables them to make positive changes to their practice.

Many thanks to Dr Dirk Pilat, Medical Director for e-learning, Dr Thomas Round, EKU Development Fellow, Dr Chris Elfes, EKC Clinical Lead and EKU Steering Group Chair, all of the EKU authors, members of the EKU Editorial Board, and the Education team here at the College.
