Compassion as a Bridge to Engagement

This programme is for individual leaders who want to be supported to work more compassionately. Developing more mindful ways of leading will be balanced with opportunities to think about whereabouts in the system there are opportunities for them as individual leaders to help the system be more compassionate and inclusive. By visiting a range of healthcare users – refugees, addiction, prison and healthcare uses, participants will be able to think creatively about what they can do as leaders to create opportunities for a more compassionate system which comes together around the needs of patients.

Dates: 3 May, 4 May, 24 May, 28 June, 18 July (participants must be available on all dates)
Venue: The Royal Foundation of St Katherine, 2 Butcher Row, London E14 8DS
