  • 3 November 2022: We launched our first enhance cross cutting theme, which is Wellbeing; a theme which is integral to the programme, as it directly impacts on patient care. The aim of this new resource is to enable healthcare professionals to maintain wellbeing and self-care of themselves and their colleagues, whilst recognising that supporting wellbeing is unique to everyone. It is aimed at multi professional learners, educators, NHS organisations and employers. It also outlines the eight dimensions of wellbeing and gives some practical tips for improving staff wellbeing on an individual, team and system level. Find out more about the Wellbeing cross-cutting theme and download the enhance wellbeing resource guide here.

    The enhance programme aims to deliver the recommendations from the Future Doctor report and build on learning from the pandemic. The programme will help healthcare teams develop and evidence their generalist skills, supporting whole person care for complex patients with multiple chronic conditions, and applying knowledge and learning to reduce health inequalities and address local health priorities.

Here you can expect to find training modules on cross cutting themes and education domains. In the coming months we will be adding more resources and learning from across the regions so watch this space!
