Abstract

The primary aim of this study was to identify how education and training can transfer to practice and benefit patients (through improved clinical effectiveness, patient safety, and patient experience). This is of interest both nationally and internationally within health and social care service delivery. It adds to the knowledge base, both theoretically and practically, by providing an evidenced based model of how educational resources targeted at staff can be facilitated to benefit patients. The amount of evidence identified in our research has exploded the myth that demonstrating the link between staff education and patient outcomes is too challenging to pursue.
