We offer groundbreaking Patient Leadership programmes, and can help boost your organisation with bespoke workshops and support.
Foundations of Patient Leadership
4 weekly sessions of 3 hours
This programme lays the foundations for understanding patient leadership. It leads you through the principles of patient leadership, what it is and where it came from, the qualities of an effective patient leader, support needed and models of embedded patient leadership. For patients, users, carers and staff (clinical, managerial).
This programme builds understanding of patient leadership relevant to your role. Through a mixture of taught material, interactive discussion focused on current issues, action learning and ongoing support, you will be able to influence change more easily through collaboration and help embed patient leadership in everyday practice. For patients, users, carers and staff (clinical, managerial).
We run in-house programmes – the Foundations course or the Applied – tailored to your needs. This can be for patients, users and carers and/or for staff. We specialise in shared learning where multi-disciplinary teams reflect on patient leadership together and co-produce the culture, systems and processes to embed patient leadership. These programmes can also be aligned with advice and support.
Your staff may be committed to shared decision-making or engagement. But you want to go further and make sure there is universal capability and capacity to do so. Your teams may want to shift how they work to be more patient-centred, but are wondering how to go beyond tick-box methods. Your managers and top leaders may not yet understand the revolutionary benefits of patient leadership over traditional forms of engagement.
In addition to our more formal programmes, from time to time we also offer focused workshops and webinars revolving around a specific topic.
Story Telling - Beyond the Compassion Rush (SH)
Not currently scheduled
Running at a time more suitable for those in the Southern Hemisphere, this interactive workshop explores the art of story-telling for impact. It will provide tools to move beyond ‘making people cry’ and help you build the foundation for ongoing patient leadership – the art of bringing one’s jewels of wisdom and insight from the caves of suffering in order to influence change.
