The Leadership for Change (LFC) Program 


This Program was developed by the International Council of Nurses (ICN). It is an action-learning program to develop nurses and allied health professionals as effective leaders and managers in a constantly changing health environment.

The LFC program is implemented over a two-year period to allow for leadership and management skills development through 'hands on' experience. Since its inception in 1995, the LFC program has been offered in more than fifty countries including the UAE.

Program Focus

  • The LFC Program focuses on enhancing effectiveness in: 
  • Health planning and policy development
  • Leadership and management in health services
  • Developing quality cost effective health services
  • Sustaining development
  • Contributing within the broader health and management teams
  • Influencing curricula changes
  • Networking regionally, nationally and internationally


Program Methodology & Key Strategies 

The LFC Program has five interrelated program components: workshops, Individual Development Planning (IDP), team projects, structured learning activities between workshops and mentoring.  This basic methodology has proven effective in all environments and remains the same, even when program content and structure are adapted to meet the needs of the different countries.

The LFC Program in the UAE - Phase 1 

Emirati nurses and other allied health professionals were selected by the MOH to undergo the LFC program which was provided by ICN in collaboration with WHO-EMRO. This 2-year program commenced in March 2002 and concluded in May 2004. The UAE was the first country within the Eastern Mediterranean Region to implement the LFC program.

The LFC program in the UAE – Phase 2 & 3 

Emirati nurses and other allied health professionals were selected by the MOH to undergo the LFC program which was provided by ICN in collaboration with WHO-EMRO. This 2-year program commenced in March 2002 and concluded in May 2004. The UAE was the first country within the Eastern Mediterranean Region to implement the LFC program.

What is LFC Program – Phase 4 

Phase 4 focuses on preparing a further group of nurses & other allied health professionals with the requisite knowledge and skills for effective management of nursing services in the UAE. In October 2009 the ICN provided a Training of Trainers (TOT) workshop and prepared 6 new national trainers who had participated in the LFC Program - Phase 3, in addition to the 6 existing trainers. These national trainers, who were certified by the ICN and WHO-EMRO will implement the LFC Program – Phase 4 in the UAE starting March 2011. This Phase 4 program will maintain the same methodology & key strategies as Phase 2 & 3 and will be supported by the Federal Department of Nursing. The role of ICN is to monitor and provide support when needed.

The LFC program in the UAE – Phase 5

This 2-year program commenced in May 2011. The second workshop was conducted in November 2011 and thethird workshop in April 2012. This phase will conclude in November 2012. Twenty nine ( 29) Emirati nurses and other allied health professionals will be graduating from this phase.
