Our Services NHS Professionals Academy Integrated Care Care Planning

Care Planning


The aim of this programme is to explore the care planning process using the political and social context as a backdrop to inform decision-making. Using case scenarios, delegates will work together in groups to formulate a personalised care plan that puts the patient at the heart of the planning. The course will consider the social and political context of care provision, the importance of cultural, social, and religious values and beliefs, and the role of the professional to ensure the best outcomes for the patient using a partnership approach to care planning.


Who is it for?
