Transforming change in healthcare:  

Rediscovering your creative side

Applied Learning Workshop 

PICNet and Sage Products are co-hosting an Education Day on the afternoon of October 1, 2012.  You can register by completing the online registration form. (Registration is free, but you must be registered to attend.)


Do you work in an area where change seems to be the norm – however, the changes that are made are not sustainable? Do you strive to put new energy into your workplace while still implementing best practice?

Imagine a unit that communicates well with each team member, a unit that uses self-discovery to find the answer to their problems. Envision a unit where patient safety and quality improvement are at the forefront of the patient care.

Come and learn how to make that vision reality. Learn how to engage in conversation that ensures we are creating the best possible environment for everyone who enters the workplace setting, and puts patient safety at the forefront of our care. Learn how to rediscover your creative side while working together to come up with solutions to difficult and challenging problems. Learn and add some change tools such as positive deviance, liberating structures, and other great tools that will help spark change and innovation.

Learning Highlights:

  • Learn tools to engage people in change
  • Rediscover creative ways to share ideas and create new ideas
  • Learn to solve problems together with sustainable outcomes
  • Learn how change can be fun!
