Managed Education Partnerships

Managed Education Partnerships (MEPs) facilitate the development of bilateral institutional health partnerships that seek to improve health service delivery and health outcomes as well as peer-to-peer relationships between individual and teams of health care professionals and system managers.

An MEP is co-created and co-developed with the local needs at the heart of the partnership.

An MEP benefits both partners, developing shared knowledge and evidence-based practice.

An MEP is a long-term and sustainable partnership, which can complement other initiatives.

MEPs generally consist of:

  • NHS organisation selected to partner with institution in partner country
  • Both agree mutually beneficial learning and/or development outcomes
  • Multi-directional knowledge and skill exchange takes place through placements or observerships in each country
  • Engagement with relevant national and government institutions
  • Reflexive practice
