A podcast that contributes to CPD points for health and care professionals has been launched this week.
The Personalised Care Institute (PCI), the national organisation which sets the standards for evidence-based personalised care training, will host the Personalised Care Podcast series, facilitating discussions around personalised care across a variety of healthcare disciplines. First in the series is a focus on women’s health with guests from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG).
Each episode will discuss how a personalised care approach – which requires health and care professionals to reframe their focus from ‘what’s the matter’ with them to ‘what matters’ to someone – can be applied in different scenarios, leading to better patient outcomes, improved adherence to advice and increased clinician and patient satisfaction. It will also share approaches to embed such practices across health and social care.
The PCI’s clinical director, Dr Pauline Foreman (pictured), will host the first podcast in the series.
Dr Foreman said: “This is the first podcast series of its kind and I’m pleased that we’ve got such an extensive and informative programme of bitesized episodes ahead. Listeners will hear first-person accounts and discussions from their peers, leaders in personalised care and patients.
“The series is designed to provide an accessible way for multidisciplinary healthcare professionals to hear insightful accounts of how personalised care makes a difference in their clinical settings. We recognise that the true success of personalised care is embedding its practice with a prepared public, so we also talk about how a collaborative approach is needed to deliver tangible results for patients.”
The podcast – like the accredited eLearning training available on our virtual hub – will count towards CPD points. Listeners will qualify for a Certificate of Learning by completing a short online evaluation afterwards.
