Leadership Skills for the Healthcare Professional (ACMEG012)
Leadership is an imperative component of contemporary healthcare. In a changing societal and healthcare landscape, delivering progressive healthcare is a challenging process. This module has been developed to allow professionals who take responsibility for the resourceful and safe organisation of healthcare practice to develop their skills and understanding of workplace based leadership and its application. This module will suit participants from all medical specialities as well as from professional backgrounds allied to medicine, such as nursing, midwifery and paramedicine.
Intended learning outcomes:
Participants will develop skills that enable them to:
- Describe the scope, role and academic responsibilities of leadership in contemporary healthcare
- Establish and maintain effective teamwork and communication.
- Manage team members’ progression, including the struggling team member.
- Guide the personal and professional development of team members.
- Enhance leadership effectiveness through the use of assessment, including workplace-based assessment, supervision and feedback.
- Determine appropriate levels of leadership autonomy to ensure safe and effective patient care whilst allowing team members to develop and extend their expertise.
- Facilitate leadership development through developmental conversations to identify and address learning needs, improve their reflective practice and safely develop their clinical leadership.
- Understand why transformation efforts fail.
- Understand power in organisations
This module will provide a range of activities and resources that will help participants to develop an understanding of leadership in contemporary healthcare and improve their skills and competencies as leaders in a multidisciplinary environment.
Method of delivery:
4 days of traditional face to face teaching.
Participants will also carry out leadership of agreed projects in their own clinical workplace. This will be discussed with the tutor through email exchanges and direct supervision and with peers during tutorial classes.
