Leading to Change: Social Work, Social Care and Health Spotlight Series – Listening and Learning at Work
virtual | 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Welcome to our new ‘Spotlight Sessions’ – events designed to raise awareness of an idea, approach or research that we believe could interest and inspire those involved in social work, social care, health, and related third and voluntary sectors. These sessions are open to all and recommended for anyone across all sectors interested in understanding more.
As Leading to Change, we are delivering a series of awareness sessions relating to core themes within social work and social care with the intention of ‘Shining a Light’ into the areas of the sector that others may know very little or nothing about.
We want to give people insights into roles and functions and the impact on ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’ with a view to reinforcing the message about collaborative leadership and the difference it can make.
We will welcome, into the conversation, Jenni Burton, a Registrar in Geriatric Medicine who will talk about The Listening and Learning study. This was research undertaken to address a gap in our understanding of care home staff experiences during the pandemic. This session will explore key findings from the study, focusing on how these should influence future practice and policy
There will be the opportunity to ask questions and engage in conversation.
This event will be available to add to ‘My Learning’ in the Leading to Change app on completion of attendance.
