The need to provide opportunities for midwives to develop leadership skills has been widely recognised for the past few years. The RCM working with PHI Learning, a market leader in leadership development across many sectors, are now offering you and your team the opportunity to benefit from attending our one day strategic leadership workshop.
Designed for teams of 3-4 midwives from a unit, this workshop allows midwives to explore their role in understanding the Trust/Boards strategy and how this translates into the key challenges for maternity services. You will develop plans to deliver this as part of an aligned local maternity strategy. Larger maternity units can send up to 6 midwives.
Places on the Leadership Workshops are free but limited to only 50 delegates per event - so make sure you book early! You can do so by emailing us firstname.lastname@example.org
