Dr Aoife Molloy's LME: clinical leadership in a world of management
Healthcare excellence in paediatrics is driven by effective leadership and management working alongside high-quality clinical care. Every clinician has the knowledge and responsibility to engage with managerial processes, to contribute to healthcare decisions for our patients at multiple levels, in every way we can.
But how do we lean across the table to start that conversation whilst keeping our focus on the patient?
Dr Aoife Molloy is Clinical Lead for the Evidence-Based Interventions Programme at NHS England, an ID doctor with an MSc in Public Health and a former National Medical Director’s Clinical Fellow. She has done extensive and multinational work in strategy, education and guideline adaptation, with wide-ranging experience in hospital medicine, arms length bodies, a think tank and a co-ordinating body for the Royal Colleges.
Join us to explore the nature of these challenges. Come and learn the skills needed to remain true to the aspirations and needs of a clinician, whilst navigating the complex world of policy, process and power.
Paediatricians at all levels encouraged to attend.
