Key Areas of Collaboration


The core activities of the Centre are based around three inter-linked areas – Education and Training, Regulation and Guidance, and Integration and Teamwork – together with crosscutting themes of Theory and Practice.

Key Areas of Collaboration

The Centre has over a hundred Organisational Partners and Individual Partners contributing in different ways to one or more of these areas. We are grateful to all our partners and to members of our Advisory Board for their encouragement and active support across such a wide range of activities.

Education and Training

Values-based practice builds on learnable clinical skills and these have been at the heart of its development form the start.

Current training initiatives include a joint program with the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences on Values-based Surgical Care. Based on our experience with this program we are working with the AOMRC (Academy of Medical Royal Colleges) on a template for developing similar programs in other areas of secondary care.
