Learning Outcomes

Course Objectives - Management of time, one of our most precious resources, is something that people throughout organisations struggle with every day.

  • Understand some of the core principles of effective time management
  • Define how these affect those working in clinical settings
  • Effectively analyse and prioritise tasks and work load
  • Effectively manage appointment time to ensure things start on time, stay on time and stop on time
  • More accurately predict whether a task is possible within time limits
  • Utilise tools and techniques to handle disruptions and people who use up time
  • Communicate with colleagues and patients about workload and time scales
  • Be more effective at getting work and task done within agreed timescales
