For most people, a long-term illness is something they will never have to deal with, but for those who do, the ability to understand and cope with their condition is an essential part of their recuperation. One of the main contributing factors to recovery is having the confidence to deal with an ailment without needing to ask for medical assistance. With this in mind, the National Leadership and Innovation Agency for Healthcare commissioned Open College Network (OCN) Wales to deliver the Credit for Patients project. This article features the Credit for Patients project, which aims to give credit to learners and carers in line with the Credit and Qualifications Framework for Wales (CQFW) by formalising the education and training patients receive. The project gives people with a long-term illness the opportunity to get credit for learning they do to cope with their condition. The positive results for both patients and carers demonstrate the strong links between health and education.
