Leadership and Capacity Building through Individual Learning and Experience
The Institute will support the development of capacity and leadership across the palliative care sector through individual learning and knowledge transfer between institutions, individuals and groups, on a national, cross-border, and international basis. The initiative will prioritise two programmes:
- Education fellowships will provide financial, technical and academic assistance to support cross-sector and cross-border learning and knowledge transfer, to facilitate development of skill, capacity and leadership. Fellowships will be short-term and practically focused, including for example: visits to specialist services for practice development, exchanges between services for cross-learning.
- Education mentorship will support leadership, interdisciplinary learning and capacity development across the sector with a focus on cross-border learning. The Institute's focus will be on establishing the programme and process, and training and sustaining a pool of mentors (rather than managing specific mentoring relationships) based on international best practice in educational mentoring.
