Appetite for sustainable healthcare education

Thanks for sharing this video Emily, a lot to be done in this area. Last year I presented a survery carried out by a colleague and I at the WONCA conference in Copenhagen. We found an appetite for more education among GP trainees, both in the UK and Denmark. A link to our poster can be found here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7-PjFnSfu_3WHJlY3pHcEw4STQ

What stage is this making it into UK curriculums currently?

Great video!

I'm a bit late to the table here, but found this video really useful and inspiring.  I agree wholeheartedly when the narrator says that it's not a matter of inventing new courses or offering more electives or options, but about embedding what we know into our core teaching.  It feels like a big boulder to push up that hill sometimes!!
