Hermitage Medical Clinic Leadership Development Programme

Hermitage Medical Clinic Leadership Development Programme for Clinical Support Staff and Clinical Nursing Staff was completed on May 5th 2016. This programme was co designed with the RCSI Institute of Leadership. Eight workshops on leadership, finance, governance, and team performance took place over a six month period. The programme was accredited by NMBI.

Ms Carolyn Whelan, Clinical Educator and Mr Ray Healy, Clinical Nurse Manager said “The aim of this programme was to provide our colleagues with the knowledge and skills to explore their leadership competencies and capabilities to become more effective leaders and managers. It has been a great success from a practice development perspective, we have fantastic change agents within HMC, and their commitment to the programme has been really positive and energizing”.

Participants completed very interesting projects on key areas for HMC including - Nursing Handover, Purposeful Rounding, Radiation standards, Theatre Start Times and Hand Hygiene Standards.
