Physician Engagement and Leadership for Health System Improvement, Institute of Health Services and Policy Research Policy Rounds, CIHR

November 29, 2013

12:30-2:00 p.m. (EST)

Physician leadership and physician engagement are essential elements of high-performing healthcare systems and contribute to improved quality and patient safety.

This webinar will highlight new leadership modalities (e.g. dyads of physician and manager leaders and other forms of distributed leadership) and processes (e.g. physician “compacts”) that are fostering what some refer to as “organized professionalism.” Strategies for successful physician leadership and engagement and critical success factors for change management approaches will be shared.
