Advanced Mentoring for Clinical Staff

Provider CPD Points Duration
Grow Medical from eMedicus Ltd.61 Day

Effective utilisation of mentoring is widely regarded as one of the most performance enhancing and individual supporting activities in the professional tool bag, whether assisting new team members, developing enhanced capabilities or resolving performance difficulties. Crucial to providing the best support to trainees of those newly in post, it is even more vital in supporting colleagues through challenges or difficulties. Our Advanced Mentoring programme is designed to provide a significantly enhanced ability in a wide variety of circumstances. Highly practical in nature, it utilises a robust framework but with advanced-level behavioural skills to match, all designed to take your mentoring ability to a whole new level. Packed with tools you can use straight out of the box.

Going forward, we have made the decision to concentrate on our ever growing In House/Bespoke course delivery, rather than open courses. With ever greater financial pressures on Trusts, this allows us to deliver a lower per person cost, with no travel for delegates as an added bonus.
We are able to come into your trust and deliver highly cost-effective, first class training service to groups of typically between 8 – 20 delegates (larger numbers can be accommodated on request).  For 8 or more delegates, the in-house rate saves both Trust and individuals money, not to mention the time-saving from not having to travel. 
Most of our courses can be tailored to suit specific groups e.g. consultants, SAS doctors, allied healthcare professionals etc, or structured for mixed groups. We are also finding that 2 or 3 local trusts may join forces to put on a training course, allowing more attendees and thus lowering the cost per person still further.
