Seminar: ‘Educating the healthcare workforce of the future: exploring the influence of commissioning on quality in clinical education’

The Institute of Education, in collaboration with Researching Learning for Clinical Practice will be running a seminar on 22 November 2011 entitled:

‘Educating the healthcare workforce of the future: exploring the influence of commissioning on quality in clinical education’

 A key challenge facing clinical education today is the need to address the “...tension between the medical education community’s long term vision of promoting a patient centred approach based on best evidence and the demands of the political community for short term efficiency in a complex system of health care”[1] (Corrigan et al 2010 p 389). This seminar aims to explore theoretical perspectives and practical issues in the pursuit of quality drawing on examples from the recent introduction of commissioning to postgraduate Medical Education and experiences from Nurse Education. The session will be chaired by Stephen Ball, Karl Mannheim Professor of Sociology of Education at the Institute of Education. Guest speakers will examine the evidence base for commissioning as a quality improvement tool in clinical education and present practice based perspectives from NHS management and education providers. A plenary discussion will allow participants the opportunity to pose questions to leaders in this field. The session is part of the Institute’s Masters programme in Clinical Education. 

Guest speakers:  

  • Rob Smith, NHS London - a Commissioner’s perspective
  • Prof Steve Powis, University College London - a Lead Provider's perspective
  • Prof Judith Ellis, South Bank University - perspectives from Nurse Education
  • Dr Mark Newman, Institute of Education - ‘Commissioning:  the theory’

The seminar will be held from 6 – 8.00 pm on 22nd November in room 537 at the Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way, London WC1H OAL.  For further information email: c.okeeffe@ioe.ac.uk
