Clincal Leadership Program

Foundational Clinical Leadership Program

The Clinical Leadership Program (CLP) is offered at a Foundational and Executive level. The Foundational Program is aimed at middle clinicians and managers. It uses a practice development framework and is delivered by facilitators employed in the local health districts.

The Foundational CLP is an experiential model, delivered within local health districts by local facilitators. The program comprises four intersecting modules, which explore and build on leadership within the health setting, knowledge of self, team dynamics and process improvement.

The program is multidisciplinary in nature and participants will be required to undertake a work-based improvement project, with coaching and support provided by local facilitators. It aims to enhance the capacity of clinicians to lead sustainable system improvement and patient safety initiatives; to work more effectively with available clinical information and resources; and to develop a culture of patient-centred care within an environment that supports work-based learning.
