Chapter 20 discusses work-based learning (WBL) as a model of lifelong learning that enables healthcare professionals working as individuals and in teams in the NHS to participate in regular and systematic educational activity, which in turn contributes to the maintenance and development of clinical competence and performance and promote quality service provision for patients. When applied effectively, WBL may also raise staff morale and increase their sense of purpose, while enhancing job satisfaction and retention in the NHS workforce.
