Master Three Conversations to Stop Turnover
Description: Health care faces a growing turnover problem. Turnover rates have been rising steadily across the past five years; even organizations with historically low turnover are likely to experience acute shortages in the near- to medium-term. Every staff member that departs represents a significant financial cost to the organization and has a negative impact on the morale, productivity, and experience of patients, colleagues, and managers. This workshop prepares managers to make a big difference through skillful, one-on-one conversations with staff about turnover
Optimizing Patient Throughput
Description: Health care organizations across the country face severe capacity constraints due to the combined effects of increased patient demand and a reduced supply of beds. The resulting overcrowding can lead to deterioration in service quality, physician and employee satisfaction, and finances, with patients turned away and elective procedures cancelled. Research demonstrates that leaders can significantly improve throughput by developing common goals with their colleagues, building bridges between departments, and gaining a concrete understanding of—and a sense of responsibility for—the steps they can take to expedite patient flow. This course elevates leaders’ understanding of the organization-wide throughput challenge, emphasizing the interdisciplinary nature of the issue and the value and necessity of building coalitions. The course enables leaders to diagnose their own departments’ contribution to throughput constraints as well as cross-functional bottlenecks, and to develop shared solutions based on national best practices.

CED’s Mastery Series are a new type of learning opportunity that consists of 4 or more classes linked by a common theme. These classes are sequenced in a particular order to allow learning over time. Back on the job, in the interval between classes, leaders can apply the skills they are learning and share their results with other class mates. The first class in each Mastery Series is open to all leaders (and can be attended as a stand-alone workshop). The 2nd, 3rd and 4th classes are meant to be taken in order. Each class builds on skills learned from the prior class in the sequence. Upon completion of all 4 classes in a Mastery Series course you will be equipped to manage all facets of that topic. We think you will enjoy this sequenced approach to learning together. Please sign up for class number 1 to learn more.
