    Workshops by Dr Peter Carter OBE

    Organised by the New Zealand Nurses Organisation (NZNO), this workshop will give you the opportunity to hear and interact with the leader of the world’s largest professional association and union for nurses, the Royal College of Nurses (RCN).

    This workshop is for both members and non-members of NZNO. It is particularly relevant to nurses who come from a clinical background, including those in leadership positions or aspiring to do so. It generically applies to managers, policy makers, researchers and educators involved in nursing provision and delivery of nursing services or health care.

    Workshop objective:

    To provide an outline of the key characteristic of effective leadership in complex health systems in which nursing is the biggest workforce.

    The workshop aims to:

    • Set out the key characteristics of effective and successful leaders in complex health systems.
    • Demonstrate through case studies the impact of successful leadership, and draws on examples of significant problems in health organisation due to poor or lack of leadership.
    • Relate the above to your own role and clinical practice setting or work setting to allow you to bring and apply the key leadership characteristics.

    Learning outcome:

    Be able to identify and describe in your clinical practice and work setting effective leadership and the positive impact it makes to delivery of nursing care and services. Apply to your roles in your clinical practice and work setting the key characteristics of effective leadership.
