What is the aim of the master class?
- To develop longer-term strategies for sustaining and evaluating a shared approach to self-management support across a team or service.
Who is it suitable for?
- Practitioners from any profession, who have previously attended Bridges training and are in a position to influence working practices (i.e. service development, change management) in their own workplace.
How is training delivered?
- Master Classes take place over one day (10.00-16.00) with a maximum group size of 8-12 participants, usually at a central London location.
- All participants will be encouraged to participate in the workshop by sharing their practice experiences and learning from each other through active learning methods.
- The Bridges team will provide individual participants with post-workshop support through methods identified during the workshop.
- To evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your team/service͛s activities relating to self-management support.
- To understand the policy drivers behind self-management support, including health behaviours, health outcomes and service utilisation.
- To explore barriers and facilitators to sustaining a long-term shared approach to supporting self-management within a multi-disciplinary team.
- To formulate strategies that will embed and sustain self-management support into team and organisational processes.
- To be aware of ways to evaluate the impact of self-management support in clinical practice.
What do other practitioners say?
- Despite best intentions, the impact of Bridges training can be lost over time because long-term changes are needed within team culture and processes. Bridges Master Classes and post-workshop support will help you to begin to address these challenges.
- An opportunity to network and learn from other Bridges-trained colleagues.
We usually run Master Classes as one part of our workforce development projects.
With enough interest we can run Master Classes as an 'open workshop' at a central London location. To register your interest in attending a Master Class please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some practitioners can fund our Master Class training through the Health Education England Portal for London and the South East via the Kingston University and St. George's University of London workforce development prospectus (p.39 onwards)
