WWLHIN Change Lab

Change Lab is a hands-on, collaborative, workshop series hosted by the Waterloo Wellington Local Health Integration Network (WWLHIN) where local health service providers can learn about new opportunities and tools available in the local health system.

The goal of Change Lab is to inspire the people of the local health system to become the Champions of Change we celebrate at our annual symposium.

WWLHIN Change Lab: Addressing Poverty, Improving Health.

The Waterloo Wellington Local Health Integration Network (WWLHIN) is hosting its next Change Lab educational event in partnership with the Waterloo Wellington Rural Health Network on April 19th.

This event is an exciting opportunity for health service providers and community partners to come together, challenge their understanding of health and poverty, and work together to inspire local action.

WWLHIN Change Lab: LEADS in a Caring Environment
Wednesday, March 21, 2012 - Thank you for attending!
All leaders – regardless of their role or position in the health system – must be able to lead themselves, engage others, achieve results, develop coalitions, and conduct system transformation in order to create the Canadian health system of the future.

The Waterloo Wellington LHIN has adopted the LEADS in a Caring Environment Framework to support ongoing leadership development.  One of the Health System Enablers identified in our Integrated Health Service Plan, 2010 – 2013, is strategic leadership.  To support the alignment of strategic leadership throughout the WWLHIN, we are pleased to offer an opportunity for local health service providers to participate in a half-day educational session on the LEADS in a Caring Environment Framework. This Framework defines the knowledge, skills, and attitudes a leader needs to exhibit in order to successfully contribute to an effective and efficient local health system. 

Join your colleagues and the Canadian College of Health Leaders for this half-day educational opportunity.

CCHSE has identified that optimum learning and implementation of the LEADS in a Caring Environment Framework is achieved when leadership teams participate together at sessions.  Therefore, we encourage health service providers to send teams of individuals (4 – 6) who can work together to apply LEADS in your organization.
