Shaping the workforce of tomorrow: Ageing and Multiple Long Term Conditions education symposium
Friday June 23, 2023
On 9 June, we hosted a Newcastle Health Innovation Partners (NHIP) Ageing and Multiple Long Term Conditions (A+MLTCs) symposium, focusing on how teaching and training about A+MLTCs will shape our workforce of the future.
The event set out to explain how, through education, we are united in the aim to improve the quality of care for older people and patients with MLTCs. It covered examples from undergraduate medicine, physiotherapy and dietetics, postgraduate nursing, and care home training.
The hybrid event was attended by around 40 delegates from a variety of educators based in universities, NHS organisations and local authority who are involved in teaching or training about A+MLTCs.
The symposium saw presentations from institutions including Newcastle, Northumbria and Sunderland University where attendees heard about a range of education and training interventions for health and social care students and graduates to improve knowledge and skills around A+MLTCS.
The event discussed how NHIP might help to facilitate the sharing of good practice within the region and influence educational regulators nationally.

There are ambitions for a similar regional event to take place to strengthen collaborations between educators and institutions.
