The Health Service Leadership Academy aims to develop leadership across the health service. We want to create a health service that puts patients, service users, carers and communities at the heart of everything we do. We want a safe, high quality service provided by engaged staff and compassionate leaders. The Health Service Leadership Academy is here to develop leaders, at every level and from every profession, who can help lead that change.
People across the country access the health service at some of the most vulnerable times in their lives. Staff working for patients and service users need training and support to provide exceptional clinical care and deeply compassionate care. That takes great leadership. Leadership in healthcare is as much about who you are and how you behave, as it is what you know and what you can do. The Health Service Leadership Academy will provide development and learning opportunities that develop both. We will support leaders across the health service to be the best they can be.
We have developed this work from best practice internationally, from other sectors and other health systems. Our leadership development uses a blend of styles. This includes virtual learning and development opportunities in our facilities in Dublin and across Ireland. Our learning matches the best academic content with great facilitation and creative ways of learning. The way we develop leaders reflects what we need them to be - creative, engaging, innovative, highly effective, and compassionate.
