Governance Maturity Matrix Workshop

You will be aware that the Centre for Advanced Practice launched it’s Governance Maturity Matrix a few months ago which we’ve shared with you and discussed at various meetings. This matrix is key for credible ACP governance, and it’s roll out and implementation is important to ensure clear, robust governance and provide assurance for trainees; the organisation, the HEI, the individual, the supervisor and patient safety. Going forward we also want to measure our applications for tACP funding against some of the domains mapped in the matrix in 2023/24.

Many of you have told us that you would really appreciate some more guidance and support rolling this out, so we are planning an interactive workshop on:

Date: Tuesday 22nd November 2022

Time: 09:30 – 12:30 

Venue: Leeds City Centre

The format of the session will be an overview of the Governance Maturity matrix; some real-life case studies from organisations that are starting to use the maturity matrix and their experience of trying to implement it with facilitated sessions for you to have a go at using it yourselves.

This workshop is aimed at ACP organisational leads, local faculties and other stakeholders who have a role in relation to ACP governance.
