This is the curriculum for 2016 School for Health and Care Radicals. For more about the School, visit: http://www.theedge.nhsiq.nhs.uk/school/

Anyone who wants to bring about change has to be ready to break the rules. But in health and social care, that can be really difficult. The art of rocking the boat while staying in it is something it seems no-one is ready to help you learn.

That’s where the School for Health and Care Radicals (SHCR) comes in. Brought to you by NHS Sustainable Improvement Team, the School is entirely online, free, backed by the world’s largest health organisation: the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), and is a platform for radicals to learn together, using powerful, guided learning which also qualifies for Continuing Professional Development points.

The School for Health and Care Radicals is a free five week virtual learning programme for change activists in health and social care.

Five modules
Absolutely free
14.30-16.00 GMT Thursday afternoons online sessions (or catch-up when you’re able)
Handbook and study guides
Social Guided Learning

If you’ve been frustrated by having to navigate stifling hierarchies to get the changes you know are needed, or criticised for being a dissenter, disruptive or even divisive, then the School is for you. It’s more than just a school — it’s a platform for learning, and a community of people like you.

  5. 5. School website: www.theedge.nhsiq.nhs.uk/school/ The five modules This first module invites you to continue your journey as a change agent and offers some new ways of thinking about how you work to effect change.

Agenda • The School for Health and Care Radicals: a short history • Transactional vs transformational learning • Emerging directions in transformation and change – Old power vs new power – Models and theories for change agents • Rocking the boat – risks and rewards – Rocking the boat AND staying in it – Building self-efficacy • Thrive and survive as a radical Questions for reflection • How can I build self-efficacy? (the belief that I can deliver change) • How can I move beyond skills and knowledge of change to ‘live and be change’? • What or who do I need to support my work as a change agent? Call to action • Discuss tactics for 'rocking the boat and staying in it' with other radicals. • Take part in a RCT (Randomised Coffee Trial). • Tweet #my3words. 1. Being a health and care radical: change starts with me
  6. 6. School website: www.theedge.nhsiq.nhs.uk/school/ The golden rule for change activists is: ‘You can’t be a radical on your own’. This module gives us an understanding of the power of working together by exploring communities of practice and social movements. We identify techniques for connecting with our own and others’ values and emotions to create a call for action. Agenda • Building communities for change – Why we can’t be radicals on our own – What is a community? – Finding power within communities • Learning from leaders of social movements – The power of one, the power of many – Calls to action – what are they and how are they powerful? – Characteristics of effective social movements – Creating change at scale – What is strategy in this context and how can we define resources? • Strengthening your community – Where are your communities? – Building new communities and bridging disconnected groups – Strong vs weak ties • Connecting with stories – Framing – Connecting with emotions through values – Using stories to connect and prompt action  Co-production within your own community – What does co-production really mean? – How can it be achieved? Questions for reflection • What learning and inspiration can I take from social movement leaders to help me in my role as an agent of change? • How can I connect with new individuals and groups to achieve my goal/s for change? • How can I promote co-production in my communities? Call to action • Let others know what’s happening in my own change community. • Identify opportunities for co-production. • Create my own story/narrative to win other people to my cause. 2. From me to we: creating connections and building communities
  7. 7. School website: www.theedge.nhsiq.nhs.uk/school/ It is natural to resist change. Rather than seeing resistance as something negative, here we shift our perspective so that we see dissent, diversity and disruption as essential components of effective change. However, we need to build resilience in order to work effectively with resistance. This module offers some tools and techniques to ensure that we remain strong, adaptable and able to continue our work as change agents. Agenda • What do we mean by resistance to change? • Importance of diversity in leading change and its implications in terms of resistance – Diversity is critical to innovation and change – Being a champion for diversity • Impact and intent – The effectiveness of a change agent is not a matter of intention; it’s a matter of impact – How to stop talking at someone and start talking to them – ‘Go for no’ – What you can do to build impact and intent • Using the ‘Stages of Change’ model to help people through change – Why people resist change – The transtheoretical model of behaviour change – What we tend to do when dealing with resistance and what we should do • Building resilience – Adapting to adversity – Recovering from failure – Adjusting to disappointment – Looking after yourself – Seeing challenges as opportunities Questions for reflection • How do I experience resistance? • How can I make sure that the changes I make achieve the impact I desire and – are sustainable? – do not create dependency? – generate self-efficacy in others? • How can I make sure that my intentions actually result in the impact I want? • What do I need to do to develop resilience so that I can roll with resistance? Call to action • Look after myself: commit to doing one thing every day that gives me joy/makes me feel good. • Identify three things I can do to support colleagues through the ‘Stages of Change’. • Make time in my diary for ‘The Edge’ talk on resilience! [11th March 09.30-11.00 GMT] 3. Rolling with resistance
  8. 8. School website: www.theedge.nhsiq.nhs.uk/school/ This module will help us create and sustain the energy we need to make change happen. We will look at a number of practical ideas, tools and resources to help us change the way we do change. Agenda • Why change efforts often fail to achieve their objectives – What happens to large-scale change efforts in reality? – Leaders and their role as ‘signal generators’ – Barriers and enablers – Intrinsic vs extrinsic motivation and drivers – What is the NHS Change Model and how does it align with the above? – How can you build both intrinsic and extrinsic motivators of change into your efforts? – How can you manage the tension between the two? • Building energy for change – What is energy for change? – What are the five energies? – Characteristics of the high and low end of the energies – What is an energy for change profile? • Creating shared purpose – What is our approach to change? – What is the value of a shared purpose? – How to avoid de facto purpose? • The Change Challenge – What are the barriers to bottom-up change? – What are the building blocks for bottom-up change? – What do you need to do to support bottom-up change? • From testing to embedding Questions for reflection  How can I make the most of both intrinsic and extrinsic aspects of change?  How can I build energy for change for the long haul?  How can I ensure shared purpose throughout my change process?

Making change happen
  9. 9. School website: www.theedge.nhsiq.nhs.uk/school/ As change agents we are aware that most effective change starts at ‘the edge’. This module will help us equip ourselves for our journey to the edge and beyond.
