- Improve the quality of life for people with complex physical and mental health needs
- Create health environments to support people to get the best outcome for their physical and mental health
- Improve someone’s day to day experience when accessing health services
- Help people access support within their community e.g. through social prescribing
This programme builds on RCN’s Parity of Esteem Programme. Its primary focus is to promote understanding and improve nurse’s awareness and understanding of people’s physical and mental health needs.
It is open to all those working in clinical settings that treat people with physical and mental health needs. It would also be of interest to clinical leads and service managers who want to better meet the complex needs of their patients in an inclusive way.
It has been designed to benefit from the skill and experience mix offered by registered nurses from Adult (RGN), Mental Health (RMN) and Learning Disability (RNLD) specialties.
