Community Education Provider Networks
In April 2013 HESL issued a call for proposals to develop Community Education Provider Networks (CEPNs) which are based on the theory of collaborative networks defined as:
‘A collection of organisations that possess the capabilities and resources needed to achieve a specific outcome’.
CEPNs are being developed to deliver our strategic aspiration of improving population health through the development of the current and future primary and community care workforce.
What are Community Education Provider Networks?
CEPNs are networked arrangements of providers within a specified geography. Their purpose is to understand and develop the community-based workforce, in order to meet the health needs of their local population. They are designed to improve the quality and localisation of education for health professionals. They aim to empower community organisations to work with higher educational institutions to assess workforce training needs, expand capacity for training in the community, innovate in the field of training and deliver multi-professional training.
