Priority Learning Outcomes Project
Educating for Sustainable Healthcare – Priority Learning Outcomes Project.
Invitations have now been sent out to leaders in medical education and other representatives for a national consultation process to scrutinise and refine priority learning outcomes, aimed at integrating sustainability concepts into medical education programmes. These outcomes have been developed by a curriculum working group from the SHE network following discussions with the General Medical Council.
An online consultation will take place in the New Year followed by a seminar in London on 30th April 2013 to review the main findings, and allow further discussion and refinement. The aim is to publish consensus recommendations for learning outcomes. A supplementary document of ideas for implementation into the curriculum will also be produced.
The headings of the draft outcomes are below.
