Mrs Gill Harris Executive Director of Nursing and Midwifery, BCUHB.
‘We are delighted to announce the launch of the Clinical Nursing and Midwifery Fellowship Programme in partnership with Bangor University. This fellowship programme is a great opportunity to support the development of our nursing and midwifery workforce, providing them with the skills to find new and innovative ways to improve patient care. As an organisation, we are committed to improving quality of care through research and quality improvement and we are looking for nurses and midwives who would like to develop these skills at an early stage of their career.'
Dr Lynne Williams, Head of School of Medical & Health Sciences, Bangor University.
‘The Fellowships will allow individuals to explore opportunities, evoke change, work with the wider team and uncover their own unique approach to nursing or midwifery. As a School within Bangor University, we are delighted to be supporting the programme and to work in partnership with BCUHB. As an organisation, the new Fellowship reflects Bangor University’s strategic direction to provide transformative learning experiences that are flexible and accessible’.
This bespoke development programme will have a focus on improving and innovating within the clinical learning environment. This will involve undertaking a quality improvement project which focuses on patient safety, reducing unwarranted variation in the clinical setting and which is aimed at transformative learning experiences.
The programme offers participants a secondment over a 12 month period to undertake their project. This will be supported by the following leadership development elements:
- Training in Quality Improvement principles and practice
- Focus on “Building Your Authority”
- Skills for demonstrating value and impact through communicating outcomes and report writing
- Development of “Presence & Impact” through experiential learning
- Ongoing action learning sets
- Celebration day
We wish the first cohort all the best on their Fellowship journey!
