The workplace project – putting learning into practice

Taking practical education to a fundamental level, some of our courses include a workplace project. An opportunity to test new knowledge and skills and to improve local services, delegates are offered mentorship and encouraged to support their peers as they continue to develop their specialism in a way that directly impacts their patient's outcomes.

Attendees have free reign over this project. It might be service delivery, patient management or drug treatments, and it could take the form of a service description, an audit, or another form of research. It should meet a local need.

When complete, the project closes with a presentation to the other course members, faculty, and often their managers, commissioners or other people of influence in their area.
