Role & Responsibilities
This role will work closely with the Head of Innovation, Implementation and Adoption, CVD Programme and Project Managers to deliver training material in four main areas:
Lipid Management (LM),
Atrial Fibrillation (AF)
Blood Pressure Optimisation (BPO)
Heart Failure (HF)
Within the HIWM CVD Programme, training is the main thread which weaves through all our projects to support and upskill healthcare professionals in primary care.
The NHS Long-Term Plan (LTP) has brought us a huge opportunity to deliver CVD prevention and management at scale amongst the 6.3 million people across the West Midlands geography.
Key elements of the role will include:
- Scoping various internal and external training resources available within LM, AF, HF and BPO and evaluating if these can be adopted as part of the training.
- Updating of existing internal training material in LM, AF, HF, BPO if required.
- Developing new training material in LM, AF, HF and BPO if necessary.
- Evaluating the delivery of the training by obtaining customer feedback and making changes to the delivery where needed.
- Developing training material outside of LM, AF, HF, BPO but within the CVD speciality if the need arises.
- Delivering the training to primary care clinicians (e.g. GPs and non-medical prescribers)
- Measuring and reporting the impact of the training.
- This role is available as a service level agreement (SLA) only. Due to the limited hours of the post, we cannot offer the post as a fixed term contract or as a secondment.
- Clinician (pharmacist or general practitioner) with current or recent experience working within the cardiovascular speciality.
- Demonstrable track record of leading positive change across organisational boundaries in the NHS with excellent leadership, influencing and communication skills.
- Ability to communicate complex and challenging issues to stakeholders in science and healthcare and more widely across academia, the NHS and government.
- Ability to collaborate with and influence a wide range of individuals and groups at a regional level in professionally based organisations whilst remaining sensitive to the autonomy and individual accountability of the partner NHS organisations and Universities.
- Relevant clinical qualifications
- Understanding of the role and remit of the NHS; awareness of relevant NHS policy; and understanding of the importance of clinical and research governance in clinical service delivery.
- Possessing the highest ethical and professional standards in clinical practice and flexibility to different ways of working.
- Involvement in continuing professional development.
