Tailored content to meet your needs

Training content is designed around your organisation’s particular needs. We begin by providing a comprehensive guide to the most common subject areas, to help you think about which would be the most useful to your team. We’ll then talk this through with you to understand your particular needs, challenges and focus, before developing your tailored training agenda.

Training can range from a series of one-hour presentations to intensive two-day events. One or more half-day workshops are what most of our clients prefer.

We can cover any topic to do with Continuing Healthcare. Here’s just a flavour of some of them:

  • Introduction to NHS Continuing Healthcare
  • The National Framework 2022 (including key updates)
  • Key principles of assessment and decision-making, including well managed need, with examples
  • How CCGs should engage the individual and their representative effectively to promote confidence and empower them to contribute effectively
