Healthcare Leadership Academy Workshop

12 OCTOBER 2018

In association with the Healthcare Leadership Academy

 

Theme: Leading in Healthcare: How do we get there?

 

The key challenge facing the vast majority of healthcare organisations is to nurture cultures that ensure the delivery of continuously improving high quality, safe and compassionate healthcare. Leadership is the most influential factor in shaping organisational culture and so ensuring the necessary leadership behaviours, strategies and qualities are developed is fundamental. There is clear evidence of the link between leadership and a range of important outcomes within health services, including patient satisfaction, patient mortality, organisational financial performance, staff well-being, engagement, turnover and absenteeism, and overall quality of care.

This year’s theme: “Leading in healthcare: How do we get there?” is focused on helping aspiring leaders and those already in leadership positions to develop and improve the skills they need to be most effective, to forge long-lasting connections with like-minded individuals tackling similar projects and to get inspired by leaders from both healthcare and other industries.

Objectives
The workshop is designed to help delegates:

  • Challenge their assumptions about leadership and debunk the myth of leadership being about position or title, that pursuing or ignoring the calling of leadership is a choice, and that they can and should assume leadership roles in their regular activities to effect positive change.
  • Explore how their leadership effectiveness can be enhanced and discuss practical ways to avoid leader burnout.
  • Learn through specific examples about how HLA alumni were able to resolve real life challenges in their organisations through effective leadership.
  • Build their knowledge of patients’ rights and understand common legal and ethical dilemmas encountered in clinical settings, and the legal resources and guidance to address these dilemmas.
  • Become familiar with the concept of putting the patient first at all times, and the use of effective user-friendly tools that can aid them in improving quality of care and ensuring patient safety.
  • Understand how patients can be self-empowered to become leaders in their own care by leveraging the use of digital health technology to help address their health problems and challenges, and how to better integrate digital health into clinical practice in order to increase adoption by both patients and clinicians
