My experience in cardiology and the public health role in Health Visiting and Midwifery highlighted the importance of disease prevention and health promotion in the health and wellbeing of the population and was thus one of the drivers in attaining an MSc in Health Promotion. Throughout this stage of my career the holistic care for patients/clients was very much reinforced and the importance of care being patient-centred. I have a keen interest in multi-disciplinary working and team effectiveness in caring for patients and was fortunate to be able to be part of a pilot within a health board whereby I facilitated team building within the Primary Care setting in my role as Primary Care Facilitator. My skills in facilitation have developed through my successful appointment as Practice Development Facilitator within a Trust. Throughout this time, personal study has widened my skills in facilitation; essentially the key areas of study have been the RCN Practice Development week and the Post-graduate Certificate in Life-long Learning. The recent opportunity for a secondment role has continued to develop my skills, consolidate new approaches to learning, encourage others to reflect on practice and identify where change may be required.
You should want to take time to develop yourself from a personal perspective. Take up or apply for any shadow or secondment opportunities that become available. They are valuable activities to engage in and often provide vast development opportunities. Get involved in initiatives e.g. audits that are going on in your area and attempt to learn from these activities and those you are working with. Utilise your formal learning e.g. courses you have undertaken to change practice. Utilise your Trust Practice Development person as a resource (if available within organisations). Learn the value and support of developing a large network of multi-professional colleagues.
