We're offering a free training course to NHS commissioning teams, entitled "Planning and Commissioning Whole-Pathways of Care for Long-Term Conditions."
This course aims to introduce a structured and systematic approach to evaluating existing pathways of care and potential service re-designs for long-term conditions. The course will show how health economics can be used to aid in evidence-based commissioning at a local level.
The key principles of health economics shall be introduced, along with a systematic framework for process mapping of whole-pathways of care and evaluating potential service re-designs, with examples of local implementations.
This course is aimed at multidisciplinary teams, based in clinical commissioning groups or health and well-being boards, responsible for commissioning services for long-term conditions. These teams are expected to consist of strategic managers, clinicians and analysts.
The training consists of 2 half-day workshops: 17th September and 28th October 2013, you should attend both sessions.
