Education & Training

Education for Health is first and foremost an independent charity, committed to improving patients' health outcomes and quality of life. We strive to achieve this by developing and delivering education for health and social care professionals that ensures patients receive up-to-date, evidence based care.

A range of educational approaches

We are leading important developments in education in improving health, managing risk and preventing disease. To ensure success, we have developed a broad range of educational approaches:

  • A portfolio of world class validated training courses

  • We make it easy for you to organise healthcare training in your area, go to Run a Course page

  • Interactive learning workshops

  • Educational resources and products, accessible through this site; some free of charge, some at a subsidised rate

  • Student support provided by specialist clinical and academic experts. Learn more about the standards that you can expect as an adult learner undertaking lifelong learning and study with us through our Student Charter

  • Dynamic, responsive education partnerships with primary care organisations and health service managers

  • An extensive network of Trainers who ensure that our education bridges the gap between current local provision and the new quality standards required in the UK and overseas.

  • Pioneering provision of distance and blended learning in some of the world's most important preventable or manageable long term conditions

  • Focus on the prevention, early diagnosis, appropriate treatment and effective management of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases from paediatric to end of life care.

Measurable results

We are the only training organisation to measure in a scientific way the impact of our education:

  • on health professional behaviour, confidence and confidence

  • for health professionals on patients' health outcomes.

Clear evidence1 shows that patients who are cared for by health professionals who have undertaken Education for Health education are measurably better in terms of their health and quality of life.

Our whole approach focuses on quality, clarity and value for money. We are able to help you to define, plan, purchase and evaluate the education you need.  This will lead to you having the right workforce in the right place with the right skills at the right time.
