The Commissioning Place - LSBU's new innovative e-learning programme to support the upcoming changes in the commissioning process

A team at London South Bank University in partnership with, KSS Deanery and cutting-edge digital media agency Brickwall have addressed the changes due to the commissioning landscape in the UK.
17 July 2013

We have developed a quick and easily accessible online programme for those involved in the commissioning process. With Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) assuming responsibility from the outgoing PCTs, there is a great need for CCG members to gain the relevant knowledge in commissioning and fit this into their busy schedules.

Each module has been written by an academic from the LSBU team using relevant examples and case studies from clinical practice. Useful references and resources are also included to provide clinicians with access to more in depth information.

The programme has been developed and piloted with a group of clinicians from the KSS Deanery, which ensures that clinical relevance is embedded in the content, and it makes use of case-based learning, with examples that clinicians can relate to within their own practice. The platform that Brickwall have developed is cutting edge and it has easy access from any device running any software with a simple yet powerful interface and logical navigation tools.

Online learning is quick and efficient as it can be done wherever the learner has access to a computer or tablet, but has a reputation for being uninvolving and tedious. LSBU have overcome this by using interactive learning tools including reflection and formative assessment, we ensure that the learning we present is interesting and engaging.

Further added value comes from a reflective log, which enables learners to capture their own thoughts about their learning experience, and reflect on how it relates to their own practice, thereby providing CPD-relevant evidence. The programme is in addition accredited by the RCGP to give CME points to any medic undertaking modules.

The Commissioning Place is great value for money and is essential for any professional involved in the commissioning process as it is a fantastic opportunity to gain vital knowledge. It costs £30 for each of the 10 modules (buying all 10 modules will include a small discount). Book today and get further information at the Commissioning Place website.
