Leadership skills course agenda 2020
Future dates for this course will be announced.
6 CPD credits*
As you are aware the UK government has indicated that everyone in the UK should avoid non-essential travel and contact and we are following this advice. After careful consideration we have decided to cancel all face to face courses until the end of 2020. When the situation changes we will update our website.
(Previously Leadership skills)
This course is designed for doctors preparing to take on greater leadership responsibility. It focuses on the personal qualities necessary for doctors to lead effectively, as well as the moral and ethical basis for leadership, and balancing the needs of patients, colleagues and the organisation.
