Strategic Innovation for Community Health equips senior health care managers to develop and implement strategic visions for healthcare. Designed for people with medical, nursing, health education and public health backgrounds in family medicine and chronic care, it prepares professionals to take on increasing responsibilities and to develop new approaches for healthcare service design and delivery.
Participants will hone innovation skills to creatively address challenges and better serve their patients. Key skill areas include process thinking, skills for patient-centred care, and how to establish a common vision for the care providers in your own organisation. You will explore the dynamics of strategic positioning in healthcare networks and develop the seeds of ideas to help your institution improve healthcare value in the populations that you serve. Major topics include:
- Self-discovery and team-development skills for innovation
- A workshop approach to implementing innovation as a systematic process
- Design thinking techniques to better understand patient needs
- Communication techniques to improve patient adoption of improved care models
