Clinical Leadership Training: Facilitator’s Guide
Click on the link above to download the resource. This facilitator’s guide is a supplementary resource to the five “Clinical Leadership Training” modules. Its purpose is to offer facilitators in long-term care (LTC) several learning activities that may support them in delivering all five modules. Drawing on adult education theory – which stresses that adults learn best in environments where their own learning and experience are integrated into the teaching – this guide provides facilitators with strategies and exercises to encourage participants (nurses working in LTC) to develop their leadership skills.
