Workforce development

We recognise that for our workforce in Lincolnshire to move to a person-centred way of working where they ask people what’s important to them and try and understand what matters there needs to be a behavioural shift. Support and investment in workforce development is necessary for this to happen.

Approaches and techniques such as Health Coaching, motivational interviewing, I.ROC, personalised care and support planning, shared decision making, strength based approaches, self-management and co-production are integral to move to a person centred way of working.

The Personalised Care Institute (PCI) is changing the lives of patients by helping to empower them with the knowledge, skills and confidence to feel more in control of their mental and physical health.

They do this by educating and inspiring health and care professionals to deliver universal personalised care that takes into account an individual’s strengths, needs and expectations, in order to deliver the right care for them.


The Personalised Care Institute offers free e-learning modules on; Core Skills, Shared Decision Making, Personalised Care and Support Planning, and Personalised Care and Support Planning - Maternity

Our role is to meet the educational needs of the multidisciplinary primary care team, and bring together NHS organisations, community providers and local authorities.
