Running an effective meeting for nurses and midwives

CPD hours:

Meetings are at the heart of management and provide an opportunity to communicate with staff and stakeholders. Running effective meetings is an essential managerial skill, however participants frequently complain that meetings are ineffectual and a waste of time.

This module is designed for nurses and midwives in, or moving into, senior or management positions. It provides an introduction to the principles of good communication, meeting planning, effective chairing, and conflict resolution.

The module aims to assist in developing effectiveness in:

  • Managing and chairing organisational meetings
  • Conducting meetings that result in productive outcomes through engagement and collaboration.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

At the end of this module participants will be able to:

  • Understand the role of meetings.
  • Recognise factors that can influence the effectiveness of chairing.
  • Plan and lead meetings effectively.
  • Improve engagement and contribution from participants to ensure constructive outcomes.
  • Identify potential conflict and influence others to achieve resolution.

At the end of this module participants will be able to:
