Explore how to lead a culture of innovation and research

Are you a service or ward manager?


Would you like to increase your team’s engagement and interest in research?

Would you like to change the culture in your team?


NHS R&D NW invites NHS middle managers (bands 7 upwards) who are leading clinical teams to take part in this innovative and unique programme to explore how to lead an effective culture of research and innovation by building leadership capacity and developing the skills and confidence to create an effective culture within their units, wards / departments.  Funded by the North West Leadership Academy, the focus of the training specifically explores research and innovation culture because we know that NHS organisations who are more research active have better patient outcomes. The course design is informed by the domains of the Healthcare Leadership Model and by the evaluation of the NHS R&D NW Academy of Creative Minds which was developed for the dissemination of health research but showed participation led to significant increase in individual levels of confidence, creativity and self belief, skills essential to good leadership.

The course consists of an initial two day residential and two one day workshops in January and March 2018.  Dates for the residential and workshops are as follows:

25th & 26th January 2018 Residential

1st March 2018 Preston Location

22nd March 2018 Manchester Location
