Aims

Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, several resourceful initiatives were implemented, across the educational landscape. As the lead organiser of the academic forum the expectation was to develop a format for on-line monthly academic teachings with streamlining further innovative ideas of change to best effect. The key objective of this QIP,is to use virtual platform to establish an educational forum that is efficient, safe, reliable, easy to use and replicable

Methods

  • A zoom based online forum was convened using QI framework to identify gaps in the programme along with new ideas of change.

  • The attendees experience new innovative practices within the programme format, in line with the original NWLD forum programme.

  • A ‘think-group’ consisting of the previous NWLD forum lead, ID training programme director and higher trainee facilitators proposed ideas towards a varied educational topic bank, in line with the ID curriculum

  • Qualitative feedback from the forum members collected at baseline and regular intervals.

  • As part of the implementation of these actions, conducted workshops evaluating the impact of COVID-19 on Educational, Psychological and Clinical landscape
