This series of masterclasses, held over five full days, aims to support experienced Registered Nurses in Primary Care with developing their leadership skills to support better patient care. The focus is on the development of skills, knowledge and expertise in chronic disease management. Through the embedding of leadership skills and knowledge, participants will, at the end of the programme, be able to demonstrate skills and competency against the identified outcomes. Underpinning each taught session will be a strong emphasis on guidelines, evidence and research that informs and underpins clinical practice. The themes of leadership, collaborative working, quality, governance and accountability will be embedded within the programme design to develop participant’s roles as leaders and innovators in chronic disease management.
Each of the taught sessions will include a range of teaching and learning strategies designed to ensure the learning needs of all participants are met, and will include lectures, workshops, scenarios (group work) and case studies.
Some of the key topics included in the sessions are:
Key learning objectives:
Should students wish, they can be enrolled in a work-based learning module (at Academic Levels 6 or 7) to obtain 15 credits. We recognise the importance of experiential learning that takes place in the workplace, by enabling you to focus on context-specific projects to enhance and influence aspects of your and others' practice. As you undertake a project, you will address both the learning outcomes of the module and specific self-defined learning outcomes. Through your experience of defining, planning and engaging in an innovation, service development or a skill development project, you will not only be contributing to your service but also engaging in work-based learning.
This programme is held over five full days in Term 2 (January to April)
