How to use the Source4Networks website - blog 1

This is the first of several blogs which cover how to use the new source 4 networks website. 

Carol Read RN/MSc

The role of network leadership is challenging and exciting, bringing together a community of individuals to make change happen and stimulate best practice.  What this website will share is the work of others in similar roles across health, social care, charity and independent sectors through case studies, intelligence, thought pieces and provide a suite of diagnostic tools to help your network fly.  It would be great if you could join us on the journey and help build the resources through case studies, intelligence and blogging about your experience. Contact the team through the website and tell us your story.

The website has been put together based on good practice, learning from other websites and by user-centred design. Furthermore we constantly strive to make this site the best possible resource for network leaders and welcome your constructive feedback and suggestions for additional content.

The home page

Everyone will be at different stages in their journey as a network leader, therefore it is worth reviewing the video on the home page to gain understanding of the concept of network leadership.

The twitter feed is live on the front page where you can follow us @source4networks. We will be running tweet chats which can contribute to continuous professional development (CPD).  The first one will be on the 31st July when we consider ‘what do we understand about the role of the network leader?’  We Nurses will be supporting our tweet chats and if you have not been involved in one before it is worth checking out their helpful guide.

The link to the frequently asked questions (FAQs) is where you will the answers to questions asked so far.  If you register on this page we will send updates on the website and you can add your questions too.

The next blog will take you through the learning space and resources pages.
