Patient Education Manager - Part Time

Every four hours, someone in the UK is paralysed by a spinal cord injury. Aspire is a national charity providing practical support to those affected, from those first days in hospital and for the rest of their lives too.

Ensuring that patients have all the skills and knowledge that they will need to get on with their lives is a vital part of the rehabilitation process. Aspire supports the NHS teams in Spinal Cord Injury Centres with their Patient Education Programmes, lifting the administrative burden off the clinical teams, helping ensure sessions run as planned and evaluating learning outcomes.

The Patient Education Manager will line manage our team of staff based in the hospitals, but much more than that they will be a champion for Patient Education across the UK; we are looking for someone that can build strong links with clinical teams, will promote new ways of delivering and evaluating patient sessions and can help ensure that patients across the country get the best possible service. Organising shared-practice events for Aspire and NHS staff, facilitating a national approach to key aspects of Patient Education and engaging with patients and ex-patients to understand what needs to change will also be key aspects of the role. Our Patient Education work is one of our fastest growing services and there is huge potential for what we can achieve.
