Workforce Transformation

An innovative approach to bedside handovers

Throughout 2018 the wards at Pennine Acute NHS Trust have been encouraged to adopt the process of “Bedside handovers”. Pearce (2018) describes this as communication at the bedside, giving patients a chance to ask questions and be heard.  Adopting this process has proved challenging and staff have experienced uncertainties around sharing of sensitive information, protecting privacy, how to involve patients and ultimately how to use it effectively to improve staff and patient experience.

A Postgraduate Diploma recognising the learning of healthcare leaders

The programme culminates in the delivery of a range of clinical leadership and improvement work-based projects and participants are awarded a Postgraduate Diploma.
