This interactive workshop from the Education Department at the Royal College of Physicians (RCP), in partnership with the RCP's Care Quality Improvement Department and the Health Foundation, is aimed at consultants from all specialties who have an interest in improving the quality of care they provide through the use of shared decision making.
From the Francis Inquiry to the Berwick review into patient safety, there is a growing drive to radically improve the quality of patients’ experience of, and involvement in their care. NHS England’s mandate explicitly emphasises the need to work with patients and carers to ‘manage and make decisions about their own care’. In future, we anticipate that all clinical staff and trainees will be required to deliver care in this way with shared decision making and support for self-management as practical approaches to making this a reality.
This 'Patients as partners' workshop is a unique opportunity to find out how you, your trust and your patients can benefit from shared decision making and support for self-management.
