Course Content

The word "power" can get a bad rap - the subtle power games that people can play is often what comes to mind when we use the word "power".  But power can be used for good instead of evil. 

This webinar covers how to build power in your nursing practice so that you can deliver expertise confidently, support junior nurses with knowledge powerfully, use power in difficult conversations with those who perceives themselves as hierarchically higher (ok, doctors!) and to get your team to be on board with key achievements, particularly as many clinical wards slowly turn toward team nursing as  a model of care.
