- Available for advanced trainees in HNET Psychiatry on the My Health Learning platform is a Leadership & Management Pathway for Advanced Trainees. This learning pathway has been designed for Advanced Trainees in Psychiatry (but may be of use to other medical and health professional trainees). It contains a mix of modules that provide some practical learning in relation to some of the challenges that face trainees as they move from a senior trainee role to a Consultant (Manage...r and Leader) role, including covering topics on planning, running projects, supervising, teamwork, meetings and how health care is funded. Estimated time for total pathway completion 3 hours. Start by logging into http://myhealthlearning.health.nsw.gov.au/ and search for the pathway in the catalogue.
