The curriculum is broken out into three tracks: Evidence-Based LeadershipSM, Patient Experience, and Advanced Leadership for Senior Executives. Customize your conference experience by attending sessions in any of the three tracks. Because sessions are scheduled concurrently throughout the conference, we recommend that you bring a team of three so someone from your group can attend every session and cascade the information to the larger team. This ensures you maximize the conference offerings and leave with a toolbox full of executable tactics. Attendees can earn up to 13.5 CE credits. Tracks include:

Evidence-Based LeadershipSM

Get the practical skills required for success in any leadership role in healthcare. These breakouts are designed to build skillsets around managing change, achieving organizational results, and creating meaningful goals. Participants will leave ready to immediately implement new ideas that will save time and increase the effectiveness of their teams. Learn how Studer Group's Evidence-Based LeadershipSM framework is the right model to build capable, agile leaders that help to create cultures of excellence.

Advanced Leadership for Senior Executives

Exclusively for senior executives and board members who are looking to gain education and alignment on the challenges and changes taking place in healthcare today. Gain essential knowledge of the external healthcare environment and how to effectively manage change. You will learn tactics around physician integration, mergers, consumerism, governance, culture, and more.

Patient Experience

Organizations with a culture that focuses on patients are rewarded with higher clinical quality and efficiency, a safer patient environment, greater employee engagement, and improved financial results. This track provides an overview of the different CAHPS surveys and helps you understand what’s mandatory and what’s in development. You will walk away with tools, tactics, and proven behaviors that improve patient experience across the continuum and specifically relate to HCAHPS, CG CAHPS, and OAS CAHPS.
