IAMSE Winter WAS: Strategies for promoting personal health & wellness and leading change at the individual level

Strategies for promoting personal health & wellness and leading change at the individual level
Presenter: Catherine Pipas, MD, MPH
January 19, 12 PM ET

Leaders in Academic Medical Centers face a need for robust change in healthcare. They are faced with diminished resources, expanded expectations and are called upon daily to lead change and achieve the “Triple Aim” of better health, better care and lower costs. Leaders of change also face increased stress and burnout. Thomas Bodenheimer’s, “Quadruple Aim” challenges leaders to prioritize their own health in order to effectively promote the health of others. By applying the continuous quality improvement (CQI) process at the personal level, leaders can demonstrate the knowledge and skills to lead change while simultaneously promoting personal improvement.

This session will focus on describing strategies for leading change at the personal level. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on the components of the process of change, their own resilience, personal vision and to strengthen their commitment to personal health choices. They will critically analyze and prioritize areas for personal improvement and define global aims, SMART objectives, actionable steps, timelines, challenges and resources for sustainability. The process begins with a personal needs assessment and ends with an actionable personal improvement plan. Participants will be supported to implement their personal plans and to partner and disseminate tools with team members and colleagues at their home institution.

At the conclusion of this seminar, the participant will be able to:

  • Describe the importance of achieving “The Quadruple Aim”
  • Discuss Strategies for Leading Change Personally and at the Team level
  • Adapt the model for systems improvement as a framework from which to apply personal health improvement
