4139.0 Health Care and Public Health Leadership Development

Tuesday, November 6, 2007: 12:30 PM
The Leadership College Program will be highlighted. This 10-month executive-level Program utilizes learning modules in varied structures, content, faculty, and logistics, in their approach to developing strong and high performing leaders to direct future healthcare organizations. Also, to be discussed is the Los Angeles Public Health Leadership Institute (LAPHLI) which was developed to provide the L.A. Department of Health’s executive staff and senior managers with tools and skills to allow them to “lead” culture change, increase skill levels and to manage daily routines. The session will also include a paper which describes how negative political reaction to the planning process surrounding a difficult health service reorganization forced management acceptance of a public health approach based on critical appraisal of the available evidence, rigorous data analysis and health professional engagement.
Session Objectives: Participants should be able to: Identify emerging leaders and learn the useful application of assessments, coaching, interactive exercises, and develop operational interpersonal and overall leadership skills needed for success in the healthcare industry. Identify five important components of the LAPHLI model. Discuss the opportunities and difficulties faced in developing and applying the “evidence file”.
