Clinical Leads - Managing upwards and making change happen

Catch-up image

The programme and topics are based upon what clinical leads have told us they need - and which is not readily available within their own Trusts or other networks. Each session brings together paediatricians in similar roles to foster peer support, facilitated by expert topic presentation and sharing of practice examples. 

The themes of this second module will include:

  • exploring how the role and responsibilities of the Clinical Director fits in the management structure of the local organisation
  • understand the mechanisms for effective influencing in the Trust
  • understanding the local health economy and political developments
  • promoting effective clinical governance including risk management and QI
  • ensure development of core skills – eg meeting management and time management

Developing the leadership skills required to manage the directorate:

  • promoting a positive, valuing culture and developing positive rapport with colleagues
  • having a strong presence as a leader of a team
  • developing clinical management and educational activities
  • engaging other clinicians in the management process
