Background: Clinical and technical skills provide only about 30% of what we need to have successful and fulfilling careers. The remaining 70%, particularly as our careers progress, comes from developing skills to understand ourselves, other people and the systems that surround us, and to exert influence for good purposes. Influencing for change also requires skills in robust improvement methodology; leadership and improvement are inextricably linked in our current situation of fast-paced change, uncertainty and ambiguity.
The day’s programme will be coordinated by Dr Bridget Wilkins and Dr Simon Knowles on behalf of the ACP, using our popular and interactive approach to experiential learning. Other engaging speakers and facilitators will join us on the day. There will be opportunities for discussion and networking.
A variety of e-documents and on-line resources will be provided to support the programme. Pre-work may be required for some of the sessions; all instructions and materials will be provided in advance for these.
Who should attend This one-day programme will be of interest to medical trainees and consultants, biomedical and clinical scientists from all pathology specialities. Accreditation for RCPath CPD has been applied for.
