Course Delivery & Duration

This introduction is designed to be delivered as a full-day workshop. Although ‘introductory’ events invariably entail a degree of information giving, the approach will wherever possible be interactive, making use of the participant’s own experiences. It will be supported with copies of the presentation and other learning materials for each participant.

Suitable For

This course is suitable for anyone who might have to lead or contribute to a small scale local service improvement project, and who has little experience of the subject. The course is of particular benefit to Practice Managers who lead change within a practice setting.

Although the principles consider will help participants make sense of larger projects, it cannot provide the detail required by those in large cross health community initiatives.
