What are the learning outcomes?

The programme seeks to support patient and citizen leaders to:

  • Update existing and develop new skills to engage with health professionals at the top two levels of the Participation Ladder.
  • Ensure members can influence decisions on service change, initially in STPs and CCGs, but wider in the long term.

Delegates will be supported to understand:

  • Context - input on their local healthcare system and their expected role
  • The opportunity for them to clarify and define what it means to be in their role
  • Benchmark their strengths and development areas
  • An introduction to the core skills and practices of a leader of change
  • The chance to practice these skills in the afternoon of each day and to model and pay attention to what it means to be a 'reflective practitioner' and leader of change
  • To identify barriers to being successful in their role both individually and as a collective and a strategy and plan of action to manage these barriers going forward.

Please note:

  • Places are free for participants.
  • Spaces are limited and are subject to review upon demand.
  • A light lunch will be provided for participants on each day.
