The Partnerships in Innovative Education (PIE) programme has been widely viewed as innovative, driving substantial educational developments and with sustainable outputs since it launched in 2013. The aim was to bring together health and social care service providers, community groups and education providers focused around the development of learning communities across primary and secondary care.
All the networks have succeeded in delivering innovative projects, creating opportunities for collaborative working across professional groups, with patients and carers, and engaged with workforce in education initiatives not previously reached. Overall the programmes have engaged formally with more than 2,300 participants, from over 50 healthcare professions or groups, patient and users organisations, patients, and local councils.
