About the event:
This innovative training programme is aimed at GP commissioner mental health leads attached to CCGs in the North of England. A flexible evidence-based programme, providing state-of-the-art training in three core areas/disciplines: Leadership, Mental Health and Commissioning; underpinned by Service User and Carer Experiences and perspectives throughout.
The main aim of the programme is to empower GP commissioners with the knowledge, skills and leadership to commission joined-up, innovative, safe and effective mental health services that provide a positive, personalised experience for service users and carers. Staff completing the programme will return to their organisations with demonstrable skills to meet commissioning objectives effectively.
By the end of the programme, participants will achieve a number of learning outcomes. These include being able to:
- Use acquired leadership skills in developing commissioning networks for mental health.
- Demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the epidemiology, clinical evidence base and best practice related to mental health problems and mental health services.
- Apply acquired skills in applying mental health data, intelligence and data to commissioning services.
- Use tools and techniques for effective commissioning and understand the underpinning finance and contracting governance processes.
- Demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the use of performance data to drive up quality, and population-based needs assessment.
- Reference and learn from commissioning case studies.
The programme uses a blended learning approach with a mix of a 5-day residential face-to-face course, group exercises, online tasks and discussion groups and personal tutorials. Participants will be supported in their workplace throughout the programme with a graduation day planned for April or May 2015. Teaching and ongoing supervision are provided by GP experts, commissioners, senior clinicians, researchers and academics from the University of Manchester, Manchester
The programme is funded by NHS England and is FREE to suitable candidates and includes compensation to cover backfill locum costs for attendance at the 5-day residential.
