The PLACE programme aims to support learners to develop their clinical learning opportunities, by embedding them into populations and communities in turn, helping learners to better understand the breadth of issues which influence a person’s health and well-being. A person centred care approach is used, which allows learners to understand how a person accesses health care, their risk of certain illnesses and stages of recovery. They will also see how patients respond to treatments and what support is needed ti achieve their career goals. The PLACE pathway works via collaboration between The Greater Manchester Training Hub and Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care Foundation Trust. The PEF team for each organisation work closely together to run the pathway, with support from the admin team integral to the pathway’s success.
