Pre-summit workshop on Wedesday, April 10 at the 2013 Saskatchewan Health Care Quality Summit. For more information about the summit, visit www.qualitysummit.ca. Follow @QualitySummit on Twitter.
Much of the redesign effort in health care is focused on the “anatomical” or technical aspects of improvement; how we transform processes, pathways and structures of care. There is growing recognition globally among leaders that we need to give more credence to the “physiological” aspects of redesign; how we capture the imagination and energy of frontline teams, leaders, and patients and families and mobilize them for system-wide transformation. Individuals and teams can weather the inevitable challenges presented by change, and they will sustain energy for change if they have an intrinsic sense of purpose, hope, and possibility about what the change will achieve.
At this one-day workshop, Helen Bevan – she is energy personified! - took us through some of the latest thinking and practice on how to build this ‘contagious commitment’ to change. She illustrates why energy is such a critical factor in successful change efforts. Learn about the different kinds of energy required for change, and the skills for assessing and building energy levels in yourself and in your team members.
