Personalised Care Institute
The PCI has launched its Make it a Month of Firsts campaign to mark its first anniversary.

New data from the Personalised Care Institute (PCI) has shown that when patients receive personalised care they are statistically significantly more likely to understand the advice given, feel motivated to follow it, find it easy to follow, feel in control of their recovery and feel listened to and valued.

The survey, which was based on patient experiences from 4,410 appointments, revealed that nine out of 10 people felt that a personalised care approach to healthcare – which was outlined as a key focus in the NHS Long Term Plan – would help them to manage their health issue more effectively.

The PCI, which celebrates its one year anniversary this month, is encouraging healthcare professionals to ‘make it a month of firsts’ by taking its free online Core Skills module as a first step in their personalised care training journey.

The PCI’s online Core Skills module is free, takes just 60 minutes to complete and all learners get a Certificate of Learning as proof of professional development.

Data shows that nine out of 10 healthcare professionals that have completed the course say it will have a positive impact on their day-to-day practice.

Dr Pauline Foreman, clinical director at the PCI, said: “We’d like to thank the thousands of health and care professionals that have already completed our courses and taken that all-important first step in their personalised care training journey and we hope that many more will join them this month.

“Our latest research shows just how much personalised care helps patients which is why training is so important.

“Our free courses are suitable for all health and care professionals, regardless of profession or seniority and across all health settings.

“I’d encourage all healthcare professionals to invest in their learning and development in this area and help to really drive change to empower patients.”

In its first year the PCI found that the Core Skills module has been completed by professionals representing more than 25 disciplines, including physiotherapists, midwives, GPs, nurses and paramedics.

The Personalised Care Institute is backed by NHS England and Improvement and supported by over 40 key health organisations, including royal colleges, key professional associations and patient groups.

It is the home for personalised care professionals, sharing research, education and knowledge with an international audience. The PCI is working towards the NHS Long-Term Plan target to train 75,000 healthcare professionals by 2024.

The PCI sets the standards for evidence-based personalised care training, educating learners with expert-led flexible eLearning courses through its dedicated central learning hub, while its robust quality-assurance and accreditation framework supports training providers to meet its high standards for personalised care education.
