  27. 27. SHAPING BEHAVIOUR USING: CLINICIAN ENGAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP Building a majority of clinical leaders 30
  28. 28. Creating Strong Foundations for Clinician Leadership • Educate clinicians about teamwork and their roles as leaders. • Genuinely value clinician leadership networks and teams that influence horizontally. 31
  29. 29. Clinician Engagement and Leadership • Culture: staff who are engaged and who have high morale deliver a better patient experience, fewer errors, lower mortality rates, less absenteeism and better clinical outcomes • Patient Focus: clinicians have the ability and motivation to keep the needs of patients at the forefront 32 Braithwaite J; Hyde P; Pope C, 2010, Culture and climate in health care organizations, Palgrave Macmillan http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=353942
  30. 30. Clinician Engagement and Leadership • System Complexity: healthcare improvement is complex and those with a deep understanding of the system are best placed to improve it • Microsystems: what makes a difference to patients is the team who delivers their care. The design and running of local teams and systems is critical 33 Braithwaite J; Hyde P; Pope C, 2010, Culture and climate in health care organizations, Palgrave Macmillan http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=353942
  31. 31. How to create a successful improvement culture in health • Make sure overall staff morale is good. Fix hot spots. • Engage the clinicians and give them the leadership and management skills they need • Use “respected colleagues” as change champions • Use the right language : it’s all about the patient • Use teams, groups, networks • Get people to work across silos 34
  32. 32. SHAPING BEHAVIOUR USING: CLINICAL NETWORKS Co-ordinating clinical experts and their leadership 35
  33. 33. Clinical Networking “Clinicians work best when they are encouraged to flourish in groupings of their own interests and preference, when they are empowered, not directed, and when they are nurtured and influenced by their peers, rather than controlled by others. This is a bottom up situation not readily amenable to top down solutions.” 36 Braithwaite J, Inaugural Australasian Network to Network Conference Melbourne March 2010
  34. 34. Clinical Networking “Clinical practice is shaped by the behaviours and attitudes of thousands of practising clinicians who every day make relatively independent decisions.” Networks: • Develop the ideas and knowledge of many clinicians into a culture • Co-ordinate clinician leadership and effort to tackle big picture issues • Advocate and communicate achievements 37 Braithwaite J, Inaugural Australasian Network to Network Conference Melbourne March 2010
