CHLNet / LEADS Canada  FREE Webinar Series: Session 13

Our Most Impactful Lessons for Leaders in Health Reform

Friday, March 29, 2019, 12pm-1pm ET

Register yourself and your colleagues for this informative and free webinar on lessons for leaders in health reform. Strong leadership is a critical success factor in stimulating innovation and the large-scale change required to improve performance for patients and families. As provinces engage in reform efforts, building health leadership capacity is an essential piece to modernizing our health workforce. Yet as initiatives unfold, leaders and the needed capabilities to facilitate innovation and large-scale change have been given limited profile and attention. Given this, the Canadian Health Leadership Network (CHLNet) has created a national working group to gather provincial leaders to exchange ideas and evidence including doing a better job of leadership development. In follow up to a breakfast session held at the 2018 National Health Leadership Conference (NHLC), three provinces will present their key strategies and lessons learned. Moderated by Kelly Grimes, Executive Director of CHLNet, this webinar will continue this informative and lively discussion.
