Nuffield Health and the Personalised Care Institute (PCI) are to deliver personalised care training to a further 3,000 healthcare professionals.
Around 3,000 healthcare professionals working at Nuffield Health, which includes nurses, physiotherapists, doctors, physiologists and rehabilitation specialists, will access the PCI’s range of e-Learning courses as part of their mandatory CPD.
Owen Ledbetter, Professional Education Lead at Nuffield Health, said: “We are the UK’s largest healthcare charity and we invest all our income back into our purpose of building a healthier nation. Therefore, we are committed to supporting the professional development of our workforce, so we can deliver connected healthcare services to where they are needed, from fitness and wellbeing to treatment and recovery.
“We are excited to be able to partner with the PCI to offer this opportunity for our clinical teams, supporting them to further develop their skills of delivering personalised care, empowering both our people and patients in the decision-making process for their connected healthcare journey.
“If people are involved in decision making, they will have a better understanding of the care that they are receiving and are more likely to engage with the advice they are given regarding their rehabilitation, suggestions around lifestyle changes and post treatment care.”
Underpinned by an accredited curriculum, the PCI’s courses equip all healthcare professionals with the skills and knowledge to place every patient at the centre of their medical decisions; changing conversations with patients to ‘what matters to you’ instead of ‘what’s the matter with you.’ This is proven to improve adherence to treatment, reduce rehabilitation time and improve patient and clinician experiences.
This is the first dedicated personalised care training to be delivered at Nuffield Health.
