Action Learning Sets

The role of action learning

 We have developed action learning as part of the support for service champions, and as a means for developing leadership for service change and development on health inequality. The learning process is facilitated by Ann Campell and Moira McKinnon of Garth Associates.

In addtion to this the members of East Lothian’s Joint Health Improvment Planning Board have planned a series of reflective sessions during which they will be joined by Dr Harry Burns, Chief Medical Officer, and Karen Grieve national programme manager for Equally Well

 Action learning sets provide the following:

  • support for individual champions developing their own learning / perspective on this issue
  • support for individual champions developing their own leadership skills in relation to this issue
  • challenge the champions to think about their role and the role of the service they represent on this issue
  • challenge the champions to think beyond their own service area on this issue
  • support the champions to maintain a focus on the rationale of Support from the Start
