When it comes to health care, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to leadership. The most effective leaders tailor their style to the specific needs of their organizations and the people they serve.
That’s why the institute for healthcare improvement (ihi) has developed the Essential Skills for Clinical Leaders program. This program is designed to help clinicians develop the skills they need to be successful leaders in today’s complex health care environment.
The program is based on the premise that effective leadership is essential to improving the quality and safety of health care. Leaders must be able to set a vision for change, build consensus among stakeholders, and create a culture of continuous improvement.
The Essential Skills for Clinical Leaders program is comprised of four modules:
Leading Change: This module helps leaders understand how to effectively lead change in health care organizations.
Building Consensus: This module helps leaders build consensus among stakeholders by using a variety of communication and facilitation techniques.
Creating a Culture of quality and safety: This module helps leaders create a culture of quality and safety in their organizations.
Improving Systems and Processes: This module helps leaders improve the systems and processes in their organizations.
Each module includes a variety of resources, including case studies, tools, and templates. The program also offers an online community where leaders can connect with other participants and share resources and best practices.
The Essential Skills for Clinical Leaders program is offered by the institute for healthcare improvement (ihi). ihi is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality and safety of health care. ihi has been working to improve health care since 1991.
The Essential Skills for Clinical Leaders program is just one of the many resources ihi offers to help leaders improve the quality and safety of health care. To learn more about ihi and the work we do, visit our website at www.ihi.org.

there are levels of expertise the
obvious one that we all receive during
our clinical training is to be a true
master expert physician or nurse or
pharmacist there's a step above that
though these days all care delivery
happens at a team level how do you
effectively lead a team it's not
sufficient to be a master of the
medicine you also have to be able to
effectively lead a group of highly
trained professionals working together
it's not one set of eyes is five sets of
eyes in that operating theatre it's not
one set of hands caring for patients
it's 20 sets of hands Curren for a
patient somebody needs to coordinate
that somebody needs to pull the pieces
together somebody needs to get that
whole team on the same page moving in
the same direction consistently
accurately how do you drive effective
change without understanding systems
without understanding the basic human
psychology that allows people to
interact together not just to deliver
good care but to systematically improve
under their professional goals how do
you understand the role of data a theory
of knowledge how do you understand
variation within those data and
appropriately classify and respond
depending upon the nature of the
underlying problem we didn't get those
things in our clinical training it was
focused on the human organism health and
disease and ways that we could intervene
to change a patient's future there's a
whole new level that distinguishes those
who deliver effective care versus those
who organize and lead an effective care
