At Patient Voice South we’re all about creating a community where you can develop your skills.  Our aim is to join up people and their work across organisational and geographical boundaries. The Patient Voice South Online Learning Programme means we can bring together people in discussion who would never otherwise meet, and this has been said to be one of the most powerful aspects of the shared learning.

The Patient Voice South Online Learning Programme 2016-17

The Learning Programme for this year includes web seminars and Online Learning Meetings. The web seminars bring together two or more experts in their field, from different sectors or areas, with plenty of time for discussion amongst the participants. Online Learning Meetings bring together 5-7 people in a chaired discussion to discuss a particular topic.

This year we are focusing on some key themes and priorities identified by NHS England Patient experience team, including: Cancer, Carers, Learning disabilities, Maternity, Patient and carer leaders, Primary care.

Both the online meetings and seminars have proved to be a popular and effective way of sharing ideas, providing short, intensive learning. There is no need for specialist equipment, and the barriers of travel time and expense are eliminated.

All of the topics have been identified by members of the Patient Voice and Experience Network. Just let us know if you have a suggestion, by emailing patientvoicesouth@swcsu.nhs.uk

Recordings of all 'open' Webinars are available on the Patient Voice website
