The purpose of this document is to provide some guiding principles to Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) that are working with HEE North to establish community outreach opportunities for undergraduate health care learners in community settings.
Learning & Development
This eWIN Hot Topic outlines what the evidence says about leading and participating in effective networks in health and care environments. It will look at what is meant by a network and the difference between networks and communities of practice; what should be considered when starting a new network (and how to make it a successful one) and the potential pitfalls to avoid. It will also cover network leadership and explore the role technology plays in supporting networks to work across boundaries and organisations.

provided an opportunity for healthcare learners to get a better understanding of how an
individual’s culture, social identity and expressed beliefs impact on the choices they make
about their care and treatment.

Availability of placement sites for orthoptic students has been an ongoing issue for many years. Many placement sites go above and beyond to accommodate students often at short notice, creating added pressure to already busy departments. The Equitable Placement Allocation scheme was designed by the three universities currently offering the orthoptic degree (The University of Liverpool, The University of Sheffield and Glasgow Caledonian) as a way to relieve the pressure on these sites and hopefully allow for a surplus of placement sites available for orthoptic students.
The initiative arose from the identification of a workforce development need in the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital (RMCH), part of Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT). CMFT secured funding, in August 2015, from Health Education England (HEE) working across the North West in conjunction with the University of Salford to co-design, pilot and evaluate a curriculum and commissioning specification for a 12 month Accelerated Children and Young People’s (CYP) Programme.
