Building clinical academic leadership capacity: sustainability through partnership

Building clinical academic leadership capacity: sustainability through partnership
Building clinical academic leadership capacity: sustainability through partnership
A national clinical academic training programme has been developed in England for nurses, midwives and allied health professionals but is insufficient to build a critical mass to have a significant impact on improved patient care. We describe a partnership model led by the University of Southampton, and its neighbouring National Health Service (NHS) partners that has the potential to address this capacity gap. In combination with the Health Education England/National Institute of Health Research (HEE/NIHR) Integrated Clinical Academic programme , we are currently supporting nurses, midwives and allied health professionals at masters (n=28), doctoral (n=36), clinical lecturer (n=5) and senior clinical lecturer (n=2) levels working across seven NHS organisations, and three nurses hold jointly funded Clinical Professor posts.

Key to the success of our partnership model is the strength of the strategic relationship developed at all levels across and within the clinical organisations involved, from board to ward. We are supporting nurses, midwives and allied health professionals to climb, in parallel, both clinical and academic career ladders. We are creating clinical academic leaders who are driving their disciplines forward, impacting on improved health outcomes and patient benefit. We have demonstrated our partnership model is sustainable and could enable doctoral capacity to be built at scale.

Abstract

A national clinical academic training programme has been developed in England for nurses, midwives and allied health professionals but is insufficient to build a critical mass to have a significant impact on improved patient care. We describe a partnership model led by the University of Southampton, and its neighbouring National Health Service (NHS) partners that has the potential to address this capacity gap. In combination with the Health Education England/National Institute of Health Research (HEE/NIHR) Integrated Clinical Academic programme , we are currently supporting nurses, midwives and allied health professionals at masters (n=28), doctoral (n=36), clinical lecturer (n=5) and senior clinical lecturer (n=2) levels working across seven NHS organisations, and three nurses hold jointly funded Clinical Professor posts.

Key to the success of our partnership model is the strength of the strategic relationship developed at all levels across and within the clinical organisations involved, from board to ward. We are supporting nurses, midwives and allied health professionals to climb, in parallel, both clinical and academic career ladders. We are creating clinical academic leaders who are driving their disciplines forward, impacting on improved health outcomes and patient benefit. We have demonstrated our partnership model is sustainable and could enable doctoral capacity to be built at scale.
