News from the Education Committee
MAJ Clint Cobb

The Hawai'i Pacific Chapter's Education Committee worked tirelessly to coordinate an educational event for members requiring Face-to-Face credits for Fellow status. This was the first event of its kind here on island and was sponsored by the Hawai'i Pacific Chapter and our sponsors.  The event took place 7-8 Oct 15. This two-day, on-site location training was worth 12 Face-to-Face credits. 32 local chapter members took part in this event.  Our guest facilitator, Mr. Carson Dye, presented a two-day session titled "Practical Leadership Strategies in an Age of Change."

He spoke of the rapid
changes occurring in the healthcare workplace today and provided attendees with practical tools they could use immediately within their organizations. The program covered strategies for dealing with a changing workforce and provided suggestions on transformational leadership to enhance quality and outcomes.  We hope this type of event becomes an annual opportunity for our members on island.

 

The Hawai'i Pacific Chapter's Education Committee also coordinated a co-sponsored event with the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE). This event, titled "Leadership in Action," took place on 5-6 Nov 15.  ACHE members received 10 Qualified Education Credits for attending this two-day session. Leadership experts, both locally and from across the nation, gathered to share their thoughts on this important topic. Thirty local chapter members attended this event.

 

Our next big educational event is scheduled for April 2016. It will be a co-sponsored event with the Hawai'i Chapter of Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA). The 2016 conference is focused on how three main target groups -- hospitals, physicians, and payers -- must continue to work more closely together to meet the challenges of providing high quality, cost-effective healthcare. Our chapter will coordinate for education credits and help organize a Leadership panel for this event.  More details to follow.

 

The Education Committee is looking for energetic, detailed individuals to help coordinate events for 2016. If you are interested in becoming an active member in the chapter and want to know more about how you can help, please let me know.

 

Regards,

 

Clint Cobb
