An Editorial Panel, facilitated by Rochester Medical was set up during the early stages of developing the programme to ensure that the course would be relevant and specific for lead nurses working in Urology and Continence Care.
Their aim was to provide the clinical and NHS expertise to assist Trevor Bethell, Forcefield Training to design a business skills orientated course that nurses could use practically to develop their service in line with NHS changes.
