Inspiring Leadership Programme

The Inspiring Leadership Programme aims to support specialist palliative care teams adopt a more proactive approach to service delivery and to embed the values, behaviours and attitudes of leadership. Developed and launched in 2017, the programme was originally developed to help identify Clinical Nurse Specialists and other Allied Health Professionals from specialist palliative care teams and prepare them for future roles. The programme is now open to all registered health and social care professionals working within specialist palliative care in Scotland. The next Inspiring Leadership programme will commence October 2021. Registration via email will open on 16th June 2021 and close on 16th August 2021.
