2014 Fund for Innovation in Healthcare Leadership Education Programs

The 2014 ethics program, "Ethical Leadership in Uncertain Times," will be led by Jack Gilbert, EdD, FACHE, clinical associate professor and director of executive and professional development in the College of Health Solutions and the College of Nursing and Health Innovation at Arizona State University. Offered in conjunction with ACHE’s Salt Lake City Cluster on Oct. 28, this half-day session will explore effective, intentional and practical ways for healthcare leaders to strengthen their organization’s focus on doing the right thing by encouraging their leadership to create practical solutions to ethical dilemmas. A select panel of healthcare leaders will react to Gilbert’s remarks and share their experiences with ethical challenges and discuss the link between ethical decision making and organizational performance. Register now at ache.org/Ethics.

If you missed the innovations program, "The Journey to Value-Based Care for Population Health: Sharing, Scaling and Replicating to Accelerated Results," held in Washington, D.C., in early August, look for an article about the program in the January/February 2015 issue of Healthcare Executive magazine.

For more information on the Fund for Innovation in Healthcare Leadership and to donate, visit ache.org/Innovation.
