Public Participation Online Learning Programme

 

Who are these sessions for?

Our online learning sessions are about working with people and communities. They include a range of online webinars, workshops and advanced Super Skills. The programme is hosted by the Public Participation team. The sessions are aimed at colleagues working in an NHS organisation, those supporting an organisation in its engagement activity, and other people in roles related to working with people and communities.

Others working in the public and voluntary sectors may also find our online learning beneficial and are welcome to attend.

Some sessions are aimed at people who are newer to working with people and communities, helping them to build their knowledge and their toolkit of resources and ideas. Some sessions are aimed at more experienced engagement practitioners, helping them further explore good practice and innovative approaches.

 

Purpose of the learning programme

We share best practice in working with people and communities to ensure health and care systems engage and work in partnership with people and communities. Sessions focus on:

  • Understanding how to build partnerships with people and communities
  • Reducing health inequalities through better understanding of the barriers faced by under-represented communities, and how to overcome these
  • Sharing inspiring ideas that can be put into practice, and tools and resources to support this
  • Meeting the legal duties to involve the public in the work of the NHS
