2022 AAHPM Leadership Forum: Ascend Leading and Managing Through Change
Hospice and palliative care leaders are called upon to create new ways for their teams to provide care to patients and families, pivot to the use of technology in care, educate colleagues on communication and goals of care conversations, stretch or reduce budgets, and promote and support resilience in self and others. Leaders, novice to advanced, are challenged beyond their current skills and competence under new and evolving leadership demands. AAHPM's Leadership Forum's 2022 Ascend program is a two-day in-person intensive designed to support hospice and palliative care professionals as they develop the capabilities to lead successful teams. The program goal is for participants to self-identify changes to their leadership strategies and performance to optimize leading and managing high-preforming teams. Desired outcomes include: 1. creating an approach for building a collaborative and resilient team through the lens of trust and respect. 2. increasing individual and collective team performance through increased self-awareness of leadership styles and strengths. 3. developing an individualized action strategy on leading and managing through change. The course includes didactics, case presentations and small group breakouts to facilitate shared problem solving led by faculty and navigator teams serving as resources, catalysts, and facilitators of learning. Faculty and navigators work within small groups of up to eight participants throughout the 2-day program guiding group discussions by using scenarios to translate program content to a practical, transferrable context for immediate learner applicability to their unique roles and practice settings. This activity is planned in the context of one or more of the ABMS/ACGME Competencies to include Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Professionalism, Systems-Based Practice and Work in Interdisciplinary Teams.
