About the Co-Lead toolkit

The UCD Co-Lead Toolkit is a series of modules designed to enhance collective leadership among multidisciplinary healthcare teams. The modules take the form of group workshops, each lasting approximately one hour. There are six core modules, which should be undertaken first, to introduce the principles and outcomes of collective leadership, and provide tools to achieve them. Teams may then choose from thirteen targeted modules which focus on specific areas for improvement, based on what they feel is needed.
