Modules in development

GPN Leadership Programme

The role of the general practice nurse (GPN) is extensive and requires a significant amount of knowledge and expertise. In the rapidly changing environment of general practice and primary care service organisation GPNs are proving vital contributors to healthcare planning and delivery. It is through growing as leaders that GPNs can effectively improve patient outcomes and the wellbeing of staff and colleagues. A GPN doesn’t need the term ‘leader’ in their job title; there will be multiple situations threaded throughout a GPN career where leadership skills can be applied. This 3-module leadership development series from the North East and Yorkshire Leadership Academy focuses on some practical leadership tools and techniques and has been designed for GPN leaders at all levels.

It uses identity theory, the latest research and real-life examples to support individuals to feel a sense of belonging and help leaders inspire a unified team. This will ultimately promote the delivery of true integrated care.
