Sign up now! .......Unique development opportunity for clinicians/front-line staff

Don't miss this one-off offer…..
We have proven how effective clinical practice can become when coaching and enhanced communication skills are used (Time to Heal programme).

Quality Conversations is building on and extending the use of these approaches…and as part of this initiative, we have secured some ‘one off’ funding from Health Education England to bring in some fabulous external trainers to share these skills much more widely than we can manage with our own resources.

North West Employers will be running up to 24 sessions as close to you as we can manage over the next three months.  The training is 1.5 days in total – an initial one day followed up around a month later with a half day.

We are operating under constraints to utilise the funding, which is driving our timescales. We have the first 12 cohort dates available (see below).  We are happy to extend the invitation to other partners in Derbyshire – GP Practice nurses, Care Home staff or Social Care colleagues – so please pass the message and opportunity on.

Who is the training for?
If you interact directly with patients and want to further develop your repertoire of skills (e.g. to reduce ‘non-concordance’ or to truly improve patient centred care) - please take this rare and precious opportunity to commit to a day and a half that will change your awareness and interaction with others (it is about interpersonal skills, so not limited to patient’s!)

When, where and how do staff book on?
Here are the dates and venues…
