The Point of Care Foundation and Health Education England working across the North West: collaboration to deliver Schwartz Rounds

A joint case study produced by Health Education England working across the North West and the Point of Care Foundation looking at the delivery of Schwartz Rounds.

Impact of Placements on Retention: HENW event

Health Education North West hosted an event on the 30th September 2015 to explore the evidence base and good practice on the impact of placement experience on student retention on their course of study.

Further information on next steps will also be published on this page when they have been finalised.
