Healthcare systems require innovative solutions to current challenges. Patients are an under-utilised asset. But there are few mechanisms to build the capacity of patient leaders - those seeking to work with and influence strategic decision-making. This initiative seeks to rectify that. Our business model is to provide learning programmes to organisations. However, we need to fund an online community of practice, develop online learning materials, subsidise our learning offer programmes to individuals who cannot afford to pay, find time to develop our range of learning offers and ensure a sustainable approach to change.
