A Buckinghamshire New University Postgraduate Certificate in Health Communication, Consultation and Involvement
The Consultation Institute is working with Buckinghamshire New University, to develop a new postgraduate qualification in health communication and consultation. The proposed course will cover the full range of skills, knowledge and behaviours required to be proficient and effective in the fields of health engagement, involvement, communication and consultation. It will reflect and address current challenges across the health and care sector including those faced by NHS Trusts and those faced by the new Integrated Care Systems. It will be open to all those who aspire to become better professionals in these important fields.
This important initiative is also supported by NHS Providers, NHS Confederation and the Shelford Group, a collaboration involving the ten largest teaching and research NHS Trusts in England.
Our aim is to develop a qualification that becomes recognised as the gold-standard qualification for health and care professionals in the fields of communication, engagement and public consultation.
We would particularly welcome interest in this course from those who may be underrepresented in the fields of health communication, consultation and engagement, including people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, disabled people, and the LGBTQIA+ community.
