Your Blended Learning & Implementation Programme

in a nutshell!

Virtual Group Consultations

Embrace technology to deliver Group Consultations to your patients.

Learn More

Supporting you to deliver routine and planned care for your patients through COVID-19 and beyond. Reconnecting you with your patients and connecting patients with their community.

A ‘one stop shop’ to ensure all your team have access to training to enable them to plan deliver and evaluate impact and outcomes of Virtual Group Consultations.

Group Consultations (Face-to-Face)

Enable your patients & practice to benefit from 1-2-1 consultations in a group setting.

Learn More

Our e-Learning & implementation programme includes the latest research, tools, resource & best practice guidance, to enable you to start delivering Group Consultations for your patients.

 

Our programme gives you access to all of the tools and techniques needed to set you up for success.  We have a very hands-on approach and support you from planning right through to delivery and evaluating impact and outcomes of Group Consultations. 

 We bring you the latest insight and research into the benefits of delivering care this way for you, your patients and your organisation.

 We also connect you with your peers across the country and share how they have successfully set up and implemented Group Consultations for their patients and show you how delivering care this way cannot only improve outcomes for patients but also invigorates the teams who deliver care this way.

e-Learning Programme

A step by step programme giving you access to all of the training and guidance you need to enable your organisation & ALL of your team members deliver Group Consultations 

Learn More

Having delivered 100’s of face-to-face Group Consultations training over 6 years it became evident that not everyone who needed to be trained to deliver Group Consultations was able to attend training sessions. We were also being continually asked to deliver more training as organisations scaled up Group Consultations across their workforce!

 

In response to this we developed our Group Consultations  e-learning programme, that allows your team to be trained at a time and place that works for you and them and ensures you have access to training for your wider team members. 

 

Our interactive e-learning brings the expert trainers, coaches and clinical leaders into the room with you and includes modules covering Change and Group Consultations approach, nuts and bolts right through to Best Practice Solutions.  It is also important to note that there is a stand alone Group Consultations Facilitator training module.

 

Our programme has been updated to include training for both Face-to-Face Group Consultations and Virtual Group Consultations and is a sustainable way to keep your teams trained to deliver and scale up delivery of Group Consultations.

i

Resources

Access all the latest templates & resources to help you to get quickly started, with guidance & support on how to use these.

Learn More

You will find relevant resources throughout our programme for both you and your patients. These resources are updated regularly and are in line with any national guidance and best practice.

We recognise that having a vault of resources is only useful if you know how and when to use these, our e learning programme signposts and walks you through this at every stage of your learning.

Implementation Coaches

For any additional support, our implementation helpdesk is only a phone-call or e-mail away.

Learn More

We know that change and learning something new can sometimes be challenging, especially as we aim to embed new and improved ways of delivering care for our patients.  To support you to make this change happen we provide access to experienced and skilled Group Consultations trainers and coaches through our helpdesk.

 

Our helpdesk is available 5 days a week and can answer any questions or queries you have around the planning, implementation and evaluation of Group Consultations.

Impact Data Dashboards

Measure the difference that Group Consultations makes for your practice & patients.

Learn More

When we make a change to practice and the delivery of care it is vital that we are able to measure and monitor the impact that this change has, not only on our patients but also on our systems.

 

Our data dashboards allow you to capture both the efficiencies of delivering care through Group Consultations and measure your patients experiences. We set these data dashboards up with you as part of our onboarding process which means that we are then able to provide you with monthly dashboards that give you the practice level data you need to measure success and improvement.

 

These measures include clinical efficiencies; DNA rates; no of sessions and average attendance; clinical hours saved, and perhaps more importantly give us direct feedback from your patients not only on their experience of Group Consultations but also how this has affected their confidence and ability to understand their condition.

Launch Events *

Directing & guiding your team to create whole system change from the outset. (*optional addition)

Learn More

To kick start your Group Consultations programme we can run live launch events with your team. These can be held either virtually or face to face and include support for you to design and develop the right Group Consultations programme for your organisation and look at how this aligns with your wider organisational strategy and plans.

This includes selecting the right team(s), as well as guidance on how to make best use of this blended learning programme to deliver sustainable high-quality care by redefining how we deliver care to patients.

BSLM Facilitator Accreditation

A great workforce & personal development opportunity for your facilitators

Learn More

Within Group Consultations, the facilitator role is an active and directive one.

 The Group Consultations facilitator is with the group throughout and supports the participants to get the best from their Group Consultation appointment. They hold the group together and act as the linchpin between the patients and clinician.

Through our collaboration with the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine we are happy to be able to recognise the effort and energy that goes into the Group Consultations facilitator role.  This role is an important and pivotal one in Group Consultations and facilitators who can evidence set criteria will be eligible to receive accreditation through the BSLM.  

This a great personal and workforce development opportunity.

Demonstrate your Return On Investment with clear Impact Data Dashboards

Our data dashboard clearly demonstrates the return on investment and overall success a GP Practice is having after running Group Consultations.

Results can be filtered by date range, attendance, DNAs and condition type. You can also see how many clinician hours have been saved, including GPs, Practice Nurses and Pharmacists.

Demonstrate the impact on patients

The improvements on patient outcomes are paramount when it comes to running these shared medical appointments.

As part of the process of a Group Consultation, patients are asked to rate their experience and their own health improvements. The data dashboards give you an instant indication of the success of Group Consultations.

This information can then also be used to demonstrate positive patient outcomes to regulatory bodies such as CQC.
