Kay Stevenson, who has a joint role across Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT) and Keele University, is one of only 14 people to be selected to join the Versus Arthritis leadership development programme this year.
The programme is for inspirational leaders committed to championing change in MSK health care and will support Kay to undertake a project focused on creating transformational change in MSK services across Staffordshire. The course is delivered by Ashridge Executive Education, an internationally renowned business school.
As a consultant physiotherapist based at the Haywood Hospital, Burslem, and a Senior Knowledge Mobilisation Fellow at Keele University, Kay has the opportunity to influence both clinical practice and research into musculoskeletal conditions and treatment.
Kay says “I have already had the opportunity to reflect on my own leadership and gain an understanding of differing styles, how these are important, and how to adapt my approach to take account of them. I look forward to being able to make a real difference to local MSK services”.
