  • Dr Roger Neighbour In this seminar based on his 2016 book The Inner Physician, Roger Neighbour (author of The Inner Consultation) suggests that every doctor retains an untrained ‘ordinary human being’ part that makes an important but often neglected contribution to practice. Drawing upon film and literature as well as clinical examples, Roger aims to help participants recognise those aspects of their personal histories, emotions and personalities that impact on patients. Drawing on the non-medical parts of our experience can enhance our insight and empathy with patients, and makes for greater effectiveness in the consulting room.

Leadership for GPs and Practice Managers

Nov. 7, 2018 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

  • Keele Clinical Leadership Academy
  • Keele Hall Staffordshire ST5 5BG
  • 540
  • *NOTE this Programme is over 2 days* This programme is designed to address the challenges of today and tomorrow in general practice. It is jointly created and delivered by Keele Clinical Leadership Academy and the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management. How do leaders in general practice ensure their practice is sustainable, and ready to succeed in a fast-changing NHS? What options do practices have, and what benefits can ‘at scale’ organisations bring? What are the pros and cons of federations, super-partnerships and limited companies? How does general practice influence the emerging integrated providers that are being developed through the STP programmes? Transforming general practice will require good leadership. This programme aims to help you understand how the NHS is changing, how to plan for the future, and how to improve your own effectiveness. This course is designed for GPs and practice managers who are planning for the future, or taking up leadership roles in GP partnerships, federations, local provider networks, or new integrated organisations. Outline of the Programme Day One: The Organisation and System Healthcare organisations are complex bodies working often in a complex environment. Unhelpful power and political behaviours can emerge, whether through hierarchy, ambition or competitive personalities. Today we will explore how this may be playing out locally. Utilising power mapping and stakeholder mapping techniques we will explore the leadership challenges this presents, where the major influencers lie and how to work constructively with them. Welcome and Introductions The wider NHS landscape The coming transformation Governance, Board games and money matters Communicating and engaging with colleagues Course Dinner: Keele Hall is an atmospheric venue and the Old Library is the perfect setting for an informal course dinner, where we will be joined by an experienced GP to continue our conversation. Day Two: The Individual Leadership is about getting results with and through people…no people, no results! Doctors are always trying to improve their service and success needs a sophisticated ability to persuade, negotiate, and influence well. This interactive session will explore a range of techniques for improving effectiveness personally and collectively. Includes an overview of the challenges facing leaders globally in the so-called VUCA world – volatile, uncertain, complex and uncertain. Leadership and management in health Improving personal effectiveness Teamworking Building a successful career Summing up the two days

Consultation Skills: Finding Your Inner Physician

Nov. 10, 2018 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

  • MediConf
  • The Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel Glasgow G81 4SA
  • 30
  • Dr Roger Neighbour In this seminar based on his 2016 book The Inner Physician, Roger Neighbour (author of The Inner Consultation) suggests that every doctor retains an untrained ‘ordinary human being’ part that makes an important but often neglected contribution to practice. Drawing upon film and literature as well as clinical examples, Roger aims to help participants recognise those aspects of their personal histories, emotions and personalities that impact on patients. Drawing on the non-medical parts of our experience can enhance our insight and empathy with patients,and makes for greater effectiveness in the consulting room. You can expect to be stimulated, intrigued and challenged – but ultimately inspired!
