– Harvard Referencing system
Part A: Leadership approaches (2000 words)
During the course of your study and placements, you have had the opportunity to experience a range of approaches to leadership, and in a number of different health contexts. In this part of the assessment, you are going to identify and reflect on ONE of these leadership approaches.
You need to structure your answer as follows:
1. Description of the leadership example (200 words)
1.1. Use specific example(s) from your clinical practice
2. Description of the leadership approach (600 words)
2.1. Identify the leadership approach you are going to reflect upon from the current literature.
2.2. Describe its key characteristics/features with reference to the literature. If there is a model for this type of care, for example a figure which shows its key features, include this and explain it.
2.3. Describe how these key characteristics were reflected in the example you selected from clinical practice.
3. Reflection on each of the following questions with regard to your selected leadership approach (1,200 words)
3.1. What are the underlying assumptions about the role of the health care professional, the patient and the carer in this approach?
(For example, is it person-centred, organisation-centred? Is it compatible with principles of person-centred care?)
3.2. How does it contribute to the practice of quality health care?
(For example, does it develop autonomy, knowledge, trust, personal accountability, cooperation, communication, risk management between colleagues and with patients and carers?)
3.3. Does it offer opportunities for graduate nurses to develop leadership skills (at an appropriate level for their experience)?
Use the designated numbers of the sections and a short sub-heading to structure your writing.
