Welcome to week 2 of the course. So far, we have learnt about vulnerability and different situations which contribute to a patient being vulnerable, as well as the impact that has on receiving healthcare.

This week will focus on learning approaches to tailor healthcare to vulnerable patients with examples and case studies. We will further understand the importance of tailored healthcare through personal experiences.

We hope you enjoy week 2 of the course. Let us know in the comments section below what you are most looking forward to learning this week!
