Better Training Better Care Patrick Mitchell Director National Programmes – Medical Education


Aims to improve the quality of training and learning for the benefit of patient care • • • • •

Commissioned by DH Ministers with SoS approval Professor Sir John Temple: Time for Training Professor John Collins: Foundation for Excellence Similar findings from other reports: Wilson, PMETB survey, Lord Patel review, QAFP reports Medical Education England, now HEE, is taking forward the work with the establishment of the National Taskforce

Two aspects of the programme

• Identification, piloting, evaluation and dissemination of good education and training practice • Improvements to curricula and the underpinning education and training frameworks

Time for Training

Sir John Temple’s Time for Training called for better use of the expanded consultant workforce, not only to ensure improved training for junior doctors but also in terms both of efficiency savings for the service, as well as enhanced safety and higher quality care for patients.

Foundation for Excellence

• Evaluated the Foundation Programme in the context of the needs of patients and trainees and the changing healthcare environment. • Identified Trusts that were doing well, having changed practices to cope with reduced working hours. • Highlighted concerns that in some cases some of the junior trainees are asked to practice beyond their level of competence and without appropriate or adequate supervision.

Bringing different bodies together in joined up thinking to deliver national positive change to the way medical education and training is delivered, directly effecting patient care and safety. Cohesive small changes = large improvements

16 Trusts piloting 16 projects Sustainable and adoptable Improve training and education Improve patient care Meet recommendations from Temple and Collins

Pilot success - Southern

East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust Introducing emergency ‘hot’ and ward-based ‘cold’ teams to improve training and supervision out of hours and on weekends. North Bristol NHS Trust Video-recording trainee consultations to use as a training tool in the outpatients department.

Next steps

• Working on adoptability plans • Looking for trusts to adopt successful projects • Holding events for trusts to share knowledge • Implement pilot projects across England

6. Integrated technology enhanced learning

• Framework for Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL). • Now seeking to develop simulation standards for simulation providers. • Showcase TEL and simulation that supports medical education at an event in late 2012.

7. Harmonisation and improving foundation training •

Largest project with 17 recommendations from Collins

Three main components: - Curriculum Development - Improving Selection into the Foundation Programme - Harmonisation and Improved Delivery
