We have worked with a wide range of patient advocacy groups within the UK and abroad. From these successful projects, we have developed a series of training materials designed especially for patient advocacy groups.
We have run strategy setting away-days, training sessions in relevant skills and we have also led very successful larger training-focused conferences with more than a hundred delegates.
We understand that the nature of patient advocacy groups is unique, as they are often made up of the patients themselves and their close friends and relatives. This means that there may be times when key team members have a setback in their health and need to take a step back or leave the group.
Because many of our Midas team come from political backgrounds, we have been able to develop training courses that explain how patient groups can get the best outcomes from politicians. Many of the changes that patient groups want to see are controlled by local, regional, national or international political representatives and organisations. We can help patient groups to navigate through the sometimes complex world of politics with confidence, and see a clear path through to their desired outcome.
Our patient advocacy courses and materials often combine elements of political awareness, communication skills, interpersonal skills, negotiating and influencing skills and presentation skills. However, because we write all our own training, and design every course to meet the needs of each individual client, we can adjust the balance of the training session to reflect the needs of your team.
