PLI Events

Protected Learning Initiative 2018/2019

Why do we do Protected Learning Events?

The aims and objectives for PLE were agreed by the CCGs Commissioning Executive Team in 2015
  1. To support the delivery of the CCGs commissioning priorities around quality, safety, and effective, value for money services - hence running events on topics such as safeguarding, infection control and new clinical pathways
  2. To target training for primary care teams in areas where the public health and other data demonstrates that Sheffield is an outlier in performance and so improve services
  3. To share experience of actual clinical practice and real learning and development needs, as well as reinforcing the CCGs expectations around what constitutes best practice
  4. To be a "shop window" for the CCG, demonstrating its commitment to support and work with its members, and to improve care for patients through effective and collaborative work
Who Should Attend?

Most PLI events are suitable for both GPs and Practice Nurses.  Some events are specifically aimed at nurses and may also include education for Health Care Assistants (HCA)

Cost and Access

Free to Practices (cost of event plus clinical cover funded by the CCG)

Training is advertised through the weekly e-bulletin emailed to all practices, with an Eventbrite link to sign up
