Delivering Quality Healthcare

The delivery of high quality healthcare is as much about understanding the context and bigger picture, as it is about modern advances in healthcare. Often, problems affecting one area of practice may have their origins in another. This highlights the need to work in an integrated, solution-focused way. A range of pathways have been designed to meet the development needs of different professionals. Bespoke educational opportunities can be offered through a variety of learning and teaching approaches such as study days, online learning and discussion forums, and classroom-based seminars. Pathways: Acutely ill patient; cancer care; e-health; long term conditions; maternal, child and family health; older people; older people and cancer; paramedic practitioners; patient safety.
