NHIVNA Academy

Often the most precious gift a leader can be given is time away from everyday pressures to:

  • Learn
  • Refresh skills
  • Think
  • Reflect
  • Discuss
  • Share experiences and ideas
  • Plan

The NHIVNA Academy aims to support its members by providing such an opportunity.

We asked you to identify topics which you felt would benefit yourselves, your teams and your patients.

Overwhelmingly our members highlighted the ability to influence change, influencing without authority and being able to maximise opportunity as the most pressing topics.

Following analysis of the survey results it has been decided to create and run a pilot module for 15 participants.

Module 1 - Making It Happen

Day 1 - Influencing Without Authority

Day 2 - Maximising Opportunity & Marketing
