About the Course

The content of this course was delivered at The HLA conference in 2017 by Rosie and Beth - two members of the JASME national committee. The aim of the session was to provide a brief insight in to some of the key considerations surrounding the organisation of peer education - including how to go about thinking about and approaching some of the more challenging elements. Both Rosie and Beth drew their content from personal experience of their involvement with peer education.

Developed in Partnership with The Healthcare Leadership Academy

With an exciting faculty from across the health sector and beyond, the aim of The Healthcare Leadership Academy is to inspire the next generation of healthcare professionals and develop their understanding of leadership. Through a combination of mentoring, Socratic discussion, and philosophical exploration, The HLA aims to inspire their scholars to change the world of healthcare one step at a time.
