FoNS Blog

This week we share an insightful blog from Deb Smith. Deb works on a busy paediatric ward and is sharing her journey as an Inspire Improvement Fellow. Read more


Special Focus : Developing Person Centred, Safe and Effective Cultures through Practice Development.

Do you want to strengthen your skills and confidence in leading and facilitating the development of person-centred, safe and effective workplaces and services? Perhaps the International Practice Development school is for you! This is a five-day all-inclusive residential, open to all health and social care professionals, including therapists.


Read what people have to say about their experiences:


Joanne Bosanquet, the new CEO at FoNS attended the school last week. This is what she said following her week long experience:


“I have been looking forward to this since I started with FoNS in May. Our team have been preparing me to challenge myself, let go of my desire to write lists and embrace the whole experience of creative learning. As I reflect on the week, I am honoured and genuinely grateful for all 30+ of my fellow participants and our IPDC/FoNS facilitators for welcoming me in and sharing their journeys so openly and with such kindness and joy. I discovered my creative brain too and began to find the freedom of expression in many forms.  My initial take home learning focuses on the power of everyone’s inner beauty and the potential for 30+ of us to become a true social and professional movement for change. We have much work to do on establishing person-centredness and person-centred cultures around us. I am 100% confident it’s the right thing to do so let’s go!”.


Three years on… Anne Williams, a researcher from Australian reflects on the impact of attending the IPDC Foundation Practice Development School hosted by FoNS in 2015.
