BetterValueHealthcare in partnership with the Chief Scientific Officer, NHS England is offering the programme to support the vision of the Five Year Forward View by providing training to systematically develop skills in value based and population healthcare.  As part of the programme, participants will complete a project demonstrating the implementation of innovative models of care across their service.The programme builds on a work undertaken with the CSO Scientific Leads which was rolled out from 2012 to 2014.

Successful participants will:

  • attend the “Hellish Decisions in Healthcare Forum” on 7-9 December 2015 which introduces the principles of population healthcare and triple value
  • through online e-learning training resources, access and learn the key concepts and skills of population healthcare to improve the triple value of the services they provide. This ten hour programme is approved for continuing professional development
  • attend a one day face-to-face workshop to reflect on learning on 28 January 2016
  • access the BMJ value e-platform to support their learning
  • put these concepts and skills into practise in a project to improve the value of the services they deliver to the population they are accountable to
  • have access to real time mentoring to develop their project. When projects are completed, they will be submitted for peer review and if accepted, published on BMJ Value, a new publication recently launched as a partnership between BetterValueHealthcare and the BMJ.

There are 20 places available on this programme, which has no charge although successful participants will have to meet their own travelling and subsistence costs and any backfill charges.  Read more about the training in a flyer for the programme.
