8 Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it (A.A. Milne 1926)


10 Clarifying the role of public involvement in healthcare education Criterion include: Effective co-ordination for patient and public involvement strategy and implementation Recruitment and selection of students Development of staff Curriculum design, delivery and management Practice learning Assessment of leaning Monitoring and review Recruitment of staff

11 Principles for Practice: involving service users and carers in health care education and training This resource has been developed through a partnership approach working with service users and carers The aim: to provide clarity for organisations that are working in health and social care education and training It outlines the Principles needed to guarantee that involvement is embedded at all levels in the design, delivery and review Includes a self assessment tool for organisations to assist in action planning NHS East Midlands (2005)

12 Skills for Health: Quality Assurance and Enhancement – Towards a New Framework To be based on an up-to-date mapping of partners processes and standards (currently underway) Centred on a web-based Shared Quality Assurance and Improvement Framework (SQAIF) Strengthening Public and Learner Involvement Indicative timescales

23 Realising the Potential Future workforce: ensuring that all commissioned healthcare education and training programmes are patient focussed involving service users at every level: in the commissioning, design, delivery and review. Current workforce: ensuring that all staff have access to training and development opportunities as part of Continuous Professional Development and Performance Reviews supported by the Knowledge and Skills Framework Service Users and Carers: as the level of public involvement grows so does the need for personal training and development opportunities for service users and carers
