Delivery method

This programme is delivered over two consecutive days. 

Day 1

The future of health and social care within the UK is at the top of the political agenda. Politics heavily influences the provision and evaluation of healthcare making it vital for all senior leaders to understand the political structures and processes which help to drive progress.

Learning outcomes:

You will develop a political understanding, discover the local political landscape and the influencing factors which relate directly to your role as a system leader.

You will also gain a greater understanding of the implications for nurse leaders working within a more ‘politicised’ system.

Day 2

Health and social care integration is a priority throughout the UK. Service transformation is a key factor in improving patient care and the patient experience, whilst at the same time making efficiencies.
The Demonstrating Value masterclass empowers nurses to lead service innovations, demonstrate the value of the transformation and inform decision making. 

Learning outcomes:

You will learn about the principles of economic assessment and the tools and techniques used to apply them in practice.

You will understand how to be an effective champion of economic assessment within an organisation and realise its potential. 

You will be able to articulate the value of general practice nursing to key stakeholders to ensure investment in the role.
