The rapid pace of change in health care, from system redesign to new payment models to increased data reporting and electronic interoperability, has clinician attention divided among many competing priorities. 

The health care workforce is challenged with new and changing requirements while improving care delivery for a larger, more diverse population. All the while, this same workforce is shifting and changing to reflect the growing diversity of the nation, the care needs and preferences of our communities. 

Multiple studies and reports have shown clinician stress is associated with lower patient satisfaction, patient safety issues, overuse of resources and increased costs of care. 

Physicians spend many years learning clinical practice, yet we don’t prepare them for change management or self-leadership. The AHA Physician Alliance has partnered with Novant Health and OneTeam Leadership on a pilot program to help fill this gap in training.

The AHA Physician Leadership Experience, held May 9-11 in Atlanta, helps participants create a new professional strategy to offset the demands of the 24/7/365, fast-paced and unrelenting health care environment.

Past participants credit the program with:
•    Expanded awareness of old limiting patterns and the creation of new life- enhancing patterns;

•    Consistent emotional restoration that creates full engagement;
•    Fully charged energy and vigor; 

•    Consistent access to one’s A-game, best self and best life; 

•    A fuller investment into one’s life and one’s work; 

•    Greater care for and joy from one’s work and one’s life; and  

•    Creation of a new reliable mode of resiliency.  

I hope you’ll join us for this transformative event. Register today.
