Initially developed in response to educational needs during the coronavirus pandemic, our webinars have remained hugely popular. The demand for short, thematic and accessible education means they are now a core part of our educational offering. Hosted live and made available on demand thereafter, this is a brilliant way to subsidise your learning on a specific topic, or to update yourself on the latest in research, clinical practice, or policy change.

Projects, knowledge & resources


Neurology service transformation projects

All of our education has a common aim - to transform the experiences and lives of people living with challenging conditions through the services and support they receive. In workplace projects, delegates put their learning into practice and are offered mentorship and encouraged to support their peers as they continue to develop their specialism in a way that directly impacts their patient's outcomes.

We want to encourage sharing of best practice and peer-to-peer encouragement, and one way we do this is through our 'Project' space. This catalogue of delegate projects provides a repository of service improvement and transformation examples for other professionals to learn from and be inspired by. Our 'Education with impact' reports are a new way to highlight a cluster of workplace projects across a common theme, highlighting the clinical context and background to the topic, and inspiring activity across the country and beyond.
