Spreading the message about the 'Evidence in Practice' DOAS Training Project

Dear colleagues
Apologies for any cross-posting.
United Bristol Healthcare NHS Trust, Severn & Wessex Deanery, and Avon Gloucestershire Wiltshire Strategic Health Authority are working together on a six month project to develop e-learning materials for newly qualified doctors. Our project specifically addresses the evidence-based practice and clinical guidelines elements of their 'Foundation Curriculum'.
The project is under the umbrella of the NHS 'Do Once And Share' programme - and so naturally we want to provide an opportunity for you to give us feedback - by registering with our 'Extended Reference Group'. We have established the ERG to inform, support, nudge, cajole, praise and (gently) criticise the project team - and crucially - to comment on pilot materials as they are developed. Your participation is entirely electronic, and is open to anyone interested.
To register with the ERG, please visit the following URL on our website;
Many thanks for reading this far...and we hope to hear from you.
