The Healthcare Digital Leaders Programme is the first of its kind. It aims to provide development for those leaders working in healthcare whose remit straddles both the clinical and digital health worlds. The Wachter Review is very clear that the role of the clinical informatician needs to develop significantly:
“The dearth of professional, well-supported CCIOs with appropriate authority and resources is an enormous obstacle to successful deployment and benefits realisation of health IT at the trust level. To rectify this gap, not only will there need to be satisfying, sustainable positions available to CCIOs in trusts, but the CCIO field itself must also be strengthened and grown. This will involve a major effort by existing professional bodies to create and certify training programmes for clinician-informaticians.”
Originally commissioned by the North West Skills Development Network This programme is designed to help you to explore your role, who you are as a leader, who you want and need to be, to discover your strengths and to identify the areas that are most important to you to work on. It provides the challenge for you to develop your own learning agenda (in, alongside and beyond the programme) and it provides a space to develop and run learning experiments that will lead to new learning and new behaviours.
