Isolation

Since the inception of the NHS, more than 50 NHS public inquiries have been conducted to address catastrophic failures in patient care.

Disempowerment of staff and patients

Inadequate leadership / management

Failure of systems and processes

The same 5 common themes emerge from each inquiry.

Poor communication

Walshe & Higgins (2002)

John Harvey-Jones (2002)

“Leaders in the NHS need imagination, vision & charisma, allied with outstanding communication skills & the ability to fire their staff with enthusiasm”


Who are the leaders

Who are the leaders?

“Lots of ordinary nurses are leaders – it is in the very nature of the job.

Good care involves winning your patient’s confidence, convincing them to keep to their treatment regimes and inspiring them to battle their way back to health”

(Crouch, 2002)

(Yoder-Wise, 1999)


Rcn clinical leadership programme

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.M.Scott Peck

To become a leader one must believe in one’s own ability to achieve results for one’s self, but the real job of the leader is not doing it but ENABLING others to do it.Saskin & Rosenbach 1993


Rcn clinical leadership programme

Where once leaders were aloof decision-makers, today they are dedicated collaborators & networkers whose role is to ENABLE & give power to their team rather than wield power to their own ends.

Rcn clinical leadership programme

The main thing is to keep the main thing - the MAIN THING


Rcn clinical leadership programme

CARING


Rcn clinical leadership programme

It may seem a strange principle to enunciate as the very first requirement in a hospital that it should do the sick no harm.


Rcn clinical leadership programme

Make the CARE OF PEOPLE your first concern, treating them as individuals

and respecting their dignity


Rcn clinical leadership programme

The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis but rather the feeling of being unwanted, uncared for and deserted by everybody

Compassion and Care


Rcn clinical leadership programme

A patient is the most important person in our Hospital. He is not an interruption to our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our Hospital. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favour by serving him. He is doing us a favour by giving us the opportunity to do so.


Rcn clinical leadership programme

As nurses, we have to be caring. We also need to be clever,

articulate and determined.

Strong and visible nursing leadership

is part of effective nursing care.

Nurses need to be in leadership positions at every level, from the bedside to the boardroom.


Rcn clinical leadership programme

...is about the principles & practices that support the basic human need to be appreciatedfor what we do & who we are.

(Kouzes & Posner, 1997)


Rcn clinical leadership programme

The modern nurse is viewed by the public as a skilled and independent professional


Rcn clinical leadership programme

Melissa Fitzpatrick (2005), former editor-in-chief of Nursing Management, wrote:

‘To the public these ads showcase diversity, intelligence, competence, and caring - the essence of nursing.’
