Apply to be selected to participate and evaluate a series of three online workshops specifically designed for NHS staff on their return from global health engagement activities. 
As part of an action research study your participation will contribute to the co-development of material to facilitate how learning from global health experiences can be used to maximum effect; for yourself and the NHS.
Series 2: Monday 12 September, Monday 26 September and Monday 10 October from 09:30–12:30.
From these workshops you will get the opportunity to:
  • learn how to use your personal power to influence change beyond your position
  • feel empowered to enact change and maximise the impact of your personal gains, both for yourself and your employer
  • gain support for how your learning can contribute to a systems-based improvement initiative within your workplace
  • add to the evidence base enabling Health Education England and NHS Trust boards to best support ongoing global health engagement activities.
  • meet others who have engaged in global volunteering and continue to learn from shared experiences.
Inclusion
To take part in this project you need to:
  • be an employee within NHS England
  • have returned from a global health experience within the last five years* to a DAC low- or middle-income country
  • be available to attend a series of three online workshops on the dates listed above (these are free to attend and you will be supported with online material such as recorded plenaries and between session activities given to maximise learning potential)
  • consent to be part of an action research study to investigate how to enable NHS participants to recognise and use their learning on return. A core part of this offer is evaluating the workshop content and design. The work has ethical approval from the University of Plymouth and has been funded by Health Education England.
* Improving Global Health alumni are exempt from this offer due to the focus of development of leadership behaviours on that programme.
Please apply for the workshops using the above form. The closing date for applications is Thursday 21 July 2022.
