We believe it is important to share learning – including both positive and negative, to allow others to learn from our experiences and so that colleagues can understand the work being supported by Cedar and the Welsh Value in Health Centre. We have led a number of peer reviewed publications and conference presentations, and regularly engage with clinical teams across Wales who wish to present their work by providing advice and support in developing conference submissions.
