Course Overview

This Course will break down for you in a few easy steps how to drive change in your workplace, regardless of size, and show you some practical examples of how others have done this.


  • Who is John Kotter?
  • The steps in Kotter’s 8-step model
  • Simple examples of the steps in practice


Health professionals are fundamental in identifying the need for change, but often they have not been equipped with the skills to drive the continuous quality improvement process.

However, patient outcomes can be significantly improved when change champions are identified and improved standards can be set.

Much research is available as to why change fails, but there is also evidence to show that change can be created and sustained if an effective and simple model is followed.


The purpose of this Course is to enhance knowledge of change management theory and strategies to drive change within your organisation to ensure processes are enhanced, and as a result, patient outcomes are improved.

Learning Outcomes

  • Health service organisations will have a measurable improvement in healthcare provision due to changes in processes and monitoring

Target Audience

This Course is particularly relevant to registered nurses, including nurse educators, and other health professionals wishing to drive change in their workplace, but who are unsure where to start.

This resource was quote well presented. Although in the beginning a little difficult to remain focussed on. I re-listened from the beginning before I had completed the course to clarify the Kotter's 8 step model of change.
