Bespoke training and support

If the programmes listed above don’t quite meet your needs, NSA Health can also develop bespoke training designed around your organisation’s specific requirements.

They can support you in a number of ways:

  • Learning needs analysis - they can identify learning needs in a range of organisational areas, prioritising key activities to improve performance and patient outcomes.
  • Solution design - Working backwards from identified outcomes, they can develop practical learning activities that will help participants in your organisation achieve these outcomes
  • Delivery and evaluation - They have a team of skilled and experienced facilitators who will work with you to see that your organisation’s training day meets the specific needs of your audience. They can also evaluate programmes and workshops, helping you to measure their effectiveness and plan future activity
  • Services to suit you - They can carry out all of these services on your behalf – or work with you to arrange as much or as little as you need
