Core Skills in Clinical Effectiveness & Improvement

Provider CPD Points Duration
Academyst from eMedicus Ltd.61 Day

Clinical effectiveness is an absolute baseline today. Dropping the clinical ball can result in adverse media attention and reputational risk, not to mention the distress to patients and impact on morale. Services need to compete on quality to ensure their enduring success, especially as the number of providers increases. This course is packed with strategies, advice and skills to assist you in taking clinical effectiveness to the next level, regardless of starting point, to ensure the best possible outcome for patients and value for commissioners.


Going forward, we have made the decision to concentrate on our ever growing In House/Bespoke course delivery, rather than open courses. With ever greater financial pressures on Trusts, this allows us to deliver a lower per person cost, with no travel for delegates as an added bonus.

We are able to come into your trust and deliver highly cost-effective, first class training service to groups of typically between 8 – 20 delegates (larger numbers can be accommodated on request).  For 8 or more delegates, the in-house rate saves both Trust and individuals money, not to mention the time-saving from not having to travel. 

Most of our courses can be tailored to suit specific groups e.g. consultants, SAS doctors, allied healthcare professionals etc, or structured for mixed groups. We are also finding that 2 or 3 local trusts may join forces to put on a training course, allowing more attendees and thus lowering the cost per person still further.
