The introductory module and seven modules are almost infinitely adaptable to an organisation’s training needs. Values in Healthcare can be completed in a sequence of eight continuous days, or as one-day stand-alone workshops, or as two half-day workshops. Specific exercises and workshops can also be abstracted from the modules and incorporated into an organisation’s wider development programme.
The Values in Healthcare pack contains detailed guidance and all the necessary materials to run the seven modules, and includes an introductory module packaged into a ring binder (approx. 500 pp) with 2 CDs of guided commentaries with music to be used during some exercises.
The printed pack and the CD version of the pack (500 pages of virtual text to be printed), are available for purchase (in an attractive ring binder and separators with CDs) at a very reasonable cost of £45.00 plus p&p – see Publications > Values in Healthcare pages
From January 2017, we are also offering the pack online free of charge (see below) for healthcare communities and anyone who wishes to use the pack. If you use the programme in any way (as it is, parts of it or integrate with other training material), we ask you to acknowledge the Foundation as the source. We welcome donations for furthering the educational work of the Foundation.

- exercises and feedback, session review, action planning and evaluation
- exercise sheets and handouts for exercises.
The reading and exercise handouts can be photocopied for group use within an educational programme and for individual study.
