Course Structure


Module 1 - Understanding Clinical Leadership Skills

This module deals with the underpinning knowledge of the competencies of clinical leadership, the integration of leadership & clinical practice and how leadership models are developed for healthcare organisations.

Module 2 - The Art of Emotional Intelligence (demonstrating clinical leadership)

The power of positive servant leadership begins from within the individual. This module will educate and empower you with the skills in emotional intelligence and the power to utilise empathy to create and manage yourself and others in your clinical practice.

Module 3 - Leading an Interdisciplinary Healthcare Team (working well with others)

Teamwork is imperative within an interdisciplinary healthcare service. Working well with others requires confidence and competency in communication, conflict management and knowing your team members.

Module 4 - Clinical Decision Making and Professional Practice (managing a clinical service)

Knowing that there is a process for making clinical decisions in practice provides a confidence to health practitioners in utilising heuristics and demonstrating critical thinking and clinical judgement to reach the best outcomes for everyone involved.

Module 5 - Care Planning and Clinical Review (quality improvement)

Underpinning your clinical skills with reflective practice and quality management will allow stronger validation to care planning and effective use of resources. Utilising research and best practice can be in the hands of every clinical leader when they are confident in pathway management.

Module 6 - Care Directives and Delegation (setting direction in healthcare)

Building a collaborative team takes trust and value in the directions you provide them. Empowerment of healthcare teams also includes passing over some power and autonomy. This module supports confidence in making directives in care and delegation for autonomy to others.

Module 7 - Understanding Clinical Governance (structure & framework)

Clinical governance can only be achieved through espoused and present clinical leaders. The structure and frameworks of clinical governance are evidence based and once understood it allows clinical leadership to master its role in reaching and maintaining the effectiveness of a clinical governance framework.
