Aspire to Lead is a short course of four modules, helping aspiring leaders in intensive care and related fields to consider clinical leadership in practice in the ICU, learning some leadership ideas and reflecting on practice. These sessions are modular - you can attend one or two, or all four as you wish.
These are workshops, so please attend with your camera on and be prepared to interact.
