Generating Synergy for Your Culture Change Journey

JUNE 28, 2011 at 1:00-4:30pm

A Culture Change Training for Eastern Oregon

Enthusiasm for culture change in any setting often meets with the crushing reality of the daily stresses of providing care and the focus on regulatory compliance. Culture change can be the engine for team building while at the same time resulting in clinical improvements and better outcomes for residents and staff.

But how to balance it all? Harnessing the talents and insights of staff through highly inclusive processes helps organizations turn what seems like competing needs into a synergy of effort.

This session will provide principles and concrete “how to” steps of culture change to help jump-start or propel change in your community. You’ll hear about lessons learned from successful culture change providers and how to apply these in your communities. Building strong working relationships with active engagement in day-to-day operations is the key to success in creating synergy and sustaining your culture change journey. Come join us!
