Respiratory Clinical Leadership Programme

Respiratory Clinical Leadership

  • Are you interested in or concerned about respiratory care and services in your area?
  • Would you like to improve the quality of care for patients with respiratory disease and feel you need some help to make that case to your practice manager or local commissioner?

Our Respiratory Clinical Leadership Programme helps give you the tools, knowledge and skills to drive improvements for patients with respiratory disease in your area. We run two residential workshops per year with a focus on

  • hot clinical topics and policy / guidance changes
  • essential professional skills such as understanding your team or your own leadership style
  • relevant management techniques such as making a business case, mapping your stakeholders, pitching your case for change or evaluating data

The Respiratory Clinical Leadership Programme workshops are designed and delivered by inspirational respiratory clinical leaders. They are clinically relevant, using real case studies and giving you time to put your learning into practice in a safe supportive environment. You will leave the workshop with practical actions and knowing that you have a network of support from the experts on the faculty and your fellow participants. They are free to attend for any health professional (or manager) who is involved in providing or commissioning primary respiratory care and who is a PCRS member*
