Competency and Confidence in Diabetes Care: The MDT Jigsaw

16 Nov 2022
Clinical Theatre 2

This session aims to look at the frameworks for competency using the new UKCPA pharmacist framework as an example.  


It looks to speak to finding comfort in role cross over but also looks to examine how professions can play to their strengths.


Approaches for a wider reach will be discussed including using matrix working, training the trainer approaches, and making use of supporting stay and lay members.


The discussion will be linked to key documents which support the development of multidisciplinary teams.


A ‘do not miss’ session for anyone struggling with workforce, looking to develop business cases and looking to what a future workforce might look like. 

  • To review how competency frameworks may play a key role in workforce development in the future
  • To give thought to how we can optimise our workforce, using different skills mix and different approaches to gain reach
  • To review key supportive documents in this area
