The Forum was established with the aims of improving channels of communication between doctors in training and senior management within NHS Lothian, allowing the voices of junior doctors to be heard within the organisation. It also allows trainees to gain valuable experience of the management structures and processes within the NHS - a vital component of training that can be challenging to explore in clinical settings.
This year we have introduced a formal role for specialty representatives and representatives for different project areas, including Clinical Management Group, Hospital at Night and eHealth. The hope is that these representatives will help establish a stronger link between the Forum and the wider trainee body within NHS Lothian.
The April issue for the QI Network includes the Clinical Change Forum presentations that took place on the 29th of April, where Eileen Clark and Yocksan Bell presented thier Missing Person Project. Debra Bower and Suzy Cooke introduced The Prospect Model for interpersonal psychotheraoy interventions.
