Leadership for Informed Practice (LIP) is a strategic leadership programme, specifically planned to address a number of key aspects of clinical leadership and how to apply these to practice, where information and technology will have a significant impact.
All clinical leaders need to be able to respond to changes in health care in the context of a changing political, professional and technical environment. The programme will challenge leaders to think about their current approaches to leadership and how these may need to change.
Some of the challenges are familiar and some are new, but the increasing role of information and technology requires some very different ways of thinking about the future of services.
The programme is for those who can see that technology and information need to be better understood in the context of leadership skills for the future, not for those who see themselves as informaticians.
It is supported by the Chief Nursing Officer and is delivered by the Clinical Division of the Department of Health Informatics Directorate and hosted in different venues across the country.
The events run from October 2011 to March 2012. To find out more information, or to book on to available courses, visit the LIPS section of the connecting for health website.
