Listen to clinician participants talk about the benefits of attending ELC group consultation learning workshops:
We take a whole team approach to practice development. Our training supports: the clinicians leading the change, clinic and practice managers, administrators, the clinicians who will be consulting with groups and trainee facilitators to understand their unique contributions and to gain the skills they need to succeed. Overtime, we have developed an easy to follow, step by step process, which ensures this change sticks, and builds confidence through knowledge and skills training, whole team coaching and practice development support.
Our programmes are always designed to build on local networks and existing skills and capabilities.
Ongoing evaluation has identified a number of critical success factors that ensure attending group consultations training converts to a change in practice back at the front line.
ELC audits conversion rates annually. Audit in 2018 found that following a one day team learning programme, over 60% of teams progressed to group consultation within eight months. This is an extremely high conversion compared to similarly complex practice development programmes that generally enjoy conversion rates of less than 20%. We are continually improving our programmes and anticipate the conversion rate rising even higher over the coming years as we learn more and simplify the change process even further.
