This introduction to leadership skills is the ideal starting point for for those taking on new roles in Primary Care Networks, stepping up in their existing workplaces, or planning for future career progression.

The topics covered by the ten modules are:

  • Becoming a leader in primary care
  • Developing personal resilience as a medical leader
  • Negotiating for success in primary care
  • Delegating safely and effectively in patient care
  • Building and leading a resilient healthcare team
  • Eight steps to great teamwork in primary care
  • Making effective practice team decisions
  • Tackling difficult behaviour in healthcare teams
  • Managing primary care teams through change
  • Leading change to improve patient care
