This course will allow delegates to have effective learning conversations with their mentees and by extension with other colleagues, patients and parents and carers. Delegates will be asked to draw upon experiences from their own life and/or practice within the interactive mentoring sessions.

  • Develop the skills to become an effective mentor to your colleagues, trainees and others
  • Network with like-minded peers
  • Access resources and support tools to take away and use locally

This was an opportunity for face to face practice of challenging mentoring conversations
