Inspire Improvement: An exciting new programme from FoNS

27th September 2017

The Foundation of Nursing Studies (FoNS) is delighted to announce that its new programme, supported by the Burdett Trust for Nursing, is now open for applications.

This new programme, Inspire Improvement will develop a community of FoNS Improvement Fellows – clinical leaders with expertise in facilitating improvement and culture change at the frontline of practice. Over 12 months, the programme will offer fellows:

  • Six learning and development days
  • Support in the workplace and via telephone/email from a FoNS Practice Development Facilitator
  • A bursary of up to £3,000 to support the development and improvement work

It is aimed at clinical leaders, for example a ward sister/matron, community team leader or care home manager from any area of health and social care in the UK who is leading a nursing and/or care team with direct patient contact and who is the direct line manager for the members of the team. (Must hold a professional UK registration with a relevant regulatory body eg NMC, HCPC.)

Key benefits:

  • Expand knowledge and skills in leading and facilitating culture change and continuous improvement
  • Influence and strengthen team working and facilitate and sustain a workplace culture that is more person-centred, safe and effective

Closing date: 6 November 2017
