Breaking Down the Barriers encourages training delivery via collaborative and reciprocal arrangements across Trust local levels to facilitate expert knowledge and resource sharing, long lasting cross training relationships between NHS Acute Trusts, Mental Health Trusts, NHS providers and partners, clinical commissioning groups, primary care settings and with the wider NHS workforce education network.
Breaking Down the Barriers has created a range of 14 free training modules for use across NHS primary and secondary care settings. Training materials are easy to use, include a range of training options e.g. videos, case studies, presentations etc., materials are customisable and can be adapted to mode of delivery and target audiences.
Training materials have built-in natural break points within the content where there are clinical time constraints and minimal administrative functions are required. Training packages can be easily integrated into existing or future training collateral. Primary and secondary settings have full local ownership and delivery of training at their own pace.
