Leading the team: Leadership 2

Module code: MW2016

This module is facilitated by a combination of specialist lectures, small group tutorials, poster creation workshop, online learning packages, problem based case scenarios, practice based learning and caseloading, directed reading and independent inquiry.

In this module, your understanding of leading others within the healthcare setting will be developed and you will be encouraged to reflect on the skills, knowledge and behaviours you need to develop. You will continue to be in small inter-professional (midwifery and nursing) learning sets where you will have the opportunity to further explore effective team leadership and discuss your observations and experiences from clinical practice of leading a team with a local midwife/nurse leader.

The knowledge, skills and attitudes required to lead others in healthcare practice, as well as the key theories of leadership and how these relate to leading a team in an aspect of healthcare will be discussed. You will reflect on your own personal leadership and managements skills and identify areas for future development in leading a team. You will also work as part of a small profession-specific team to explore aspects of leadership in practice, further developing your familiarity with the NHS Leadership Academy’s Nine Dimensions of Leadership, particularly in relation to engaging others in a shared vision.
