CHIME DIGITAL HEALTH LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

We know at FNF that there are many nurses and midwives influencing and leading digital change in their organisations, however the preparation for these roles is limited. We aim to address the imbalance of nurses and midwives accessing national multi-disciplinary development programmes for Digital Health Leaders by creating a network of digital nurses and midwives who are supporting each other to ensure nursing and midwifery knowledge is at the heart of digital innovation.

  • CHIME Digital Health Leadership Academy for Nurse and Midwife Leaders 10, 11 & 12 February 2021

     

     

     

     

    CHIME International is teaching a three-day Leadership Academy to Nightingale Scholars and Alumni as part of the Florence Nightingale Foundation Scholarship programme.

    This Leadership Academy is designed specifically for nurses and midwives and will be taught by a faculty of US and UK digital nurse and midwife leaders, supported by CHIME staff – themselves all subject matter experts in digital health and leadership.

    The agenda will follow CHIME’s academically recognised curriculum which covers the seven strengths – known as CHIME’s Success Factors – that a health and care professional needs to develop to use digital health to transform patient care.

    Students will be taught how to set vision and strategy for digital health in their organisation; influence colleagues to make change happen; keep patients at the centre of any adaptive change; help staff adopt digital health solutions and build strong networks and communities across all agencies.

    Methods

    Everyone joining the Digital Leadership Academy will immediately be enrolled onto Ignite: CHIME’s online education platform.

    This subscription service is normally $99 annually and is offered free to all students to allow them to meet their mentor and classmates, start reading course materials and use the many educational resources and self-paced courses available on the Ignite site.

    The Leadership Academy is preceded with a webinar to introduce you to the CHIME faculty and explain the curriculum. Students will be given a reading packet including papers and articles exclusively bought on licence. Each student will be mentored in a small group by a CHIME faculty member.

    The curriculum is taught through presentations, individual tasks, group assignments and includes support with personal resilience.

    Due to COVID-19 we intend to teach the Academy in-person if local conditions allow us to do so safely. We will teach in a setting that allows social distancing and infection security and is adjacent to hotel rooms.

    CHIME invites all students to a Gala Dinner on the evening of day two, giving you an opportunity to network and build professional relationships.

    Outcomes

    The Leadership Academy will train Scholars to work at the top of their licence by using digital health to transform their practice. Attendees will be able to be advocates for IT adoption in a health and care setting and be confident justifying IT spend, designing digital health strategies and encouraging adaptive change from their colleagues.

    Attendees will also spend time working on their personal resilience and life/work balance in order to support their professional impact. Each attendee will work closely with a mentor, such as a Chief Nurse Information Officer, who will remain available for support and counsel after the course.

    On completing the Academy attendees will be eligible to study for and take the Certified Healthcare CIO examination and if successful, use the post-nominal letters CHCIO for three years.

    CHIME education is academically recognised and attendees wishing to progress to further study – such as the NHS Digital Academy or an MSc – can use this programme as evidence of suitability for further training.

"The Digital Leadership Academy is a unique opportunity that has been designed specifically to prepare nurses and midwives for digital leadership roles. I highly recommend this opportunity for any nurse and midwife involved in digital change within their organisations.”
