Effective & Practical Solutions to Empower Your Healthcare Workforce During Crisis
Healthcare in Australia is amid a significant transformation, and the impact of these changes on the existing healthcare workforce is substantial and long term.
The last two years have been extremely challenging for both health managers and their teams. This once-in-a-career healthcare landscape has provided the perfect conditions to challenge our thinking about how to manage staff and services within a resource poor, chaos rich setting. Leaders need to be agile to adapt rapidly to changing contexts. This comes with its challenges to keep teams focused, whilst at the same time working with limited resources to meet the array of health outcomes that is demanded of us by our patients, community, and government agencies.
In this eight-hour workshop, you will be given proven and tailored frameworks and activities. You will be expertly guided on how to lead your team through stress, situations of limited resources, and tight timelines to achieve the optimal in healthcare operations and patient outcomes. Through an innovative mix of presentations, interactive group exercises and expert feedback, this training is designed to ensure you and your workforce is capable of delivering outstanding service and outcomes and is resilient in the face of the tomorrow’s healthcare landscape. Participants will be able to work through current challenges and develop tailored personal and team action plans to increase the capacity and capabilities of their teams.
