Description

With growing pressure on the NHS to keep staff up-to-date, committed and equipped with flexible skills profiles, "Learning for Health Improvement" offers creative ways to invest in people development. It explores the issues relating to work based learning, and argues it is much broader than mere skills acquisition and is wide ranging, collaborative and socially situated. Adopting a practical approach, the book makes use of quizzes, stories, dilemmas and audit tools to assist in comprehension and work-based application. "Learning for Health Improvement" is essential reading for managers and supervisors in healthcare, policy makers and shapers, and healthcare human resources and training managers. It will also be of great interest to healthcare lecturers and academics.
