Bridging the gap between policy and action, PCI offers evidence-based, peer-led training and mentoring. Through face-to-face, online or a blended model, we strengthen primary care capacity by delivering practical health workforce solutions: focusing on building confidence and motivation as much as skills and competence. We have developed carefully structured cascade training programmes which enable our initial training to be cascaded and embedded much more widely. Trainers then become a resource for workforce development into the future.
PCI also places emphasis on developing local leadership. Local leaders are critical to the success – and sustainability – of any new initiative. Through tailored mentoring and distance support programmes, PCI acts as a critical friend to leaders seeking to prioritise strengthening of primary care and ensure sustained impact.
