Sustaining change through Masterclasses

We provide the space to celebrate, share and learn from the efforts of individuals and teams to implement new ways of delivering person-centred self-management support.

We understand the social and organisational enablers and barriers to implementation, and we equip participants with the tools needed to sustain and measure the impact of Bridges in the longer term



Each participant or team will create a unique plan to sustain and spread enhanced person-centred care in their teams, services and systems.

What do other practitioners say?

"Despite best intentions, the impact of Bridges training can be lost over time because long-term changes are needed within team culture and processes.  Bridges Master Classes and post-workshop support will help you to begin to address these challenges.The perfect opportunity to network and learn from other Bridges-trained colleagues."
