WSHA is dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of our members, while continuing to offer high-quality educational content. With that in mind, it is my pleasure to share details of the WSHA Spring Forward eSeries.
The eSeries is an all-virtual speaker series taking place April 29 – Aug. 19, 2021, developed to serve the current needs of our Washington health care community. It will include five virtual keynotes delivered by national experts. We look forward to continuing to challenge and engage our members with this curated content:
- April 29 – Telemedicine Post COVID-19, Hospital at Home & Technology Expansion with Dr. Daniel Kraft. This session will explore how the pandemic has accelerated the digitization and virtualization of health care from telemedicine to remote patient monitoring, and what’s emerging and coming next in prevention, diagnostics and therapy, and its implications for hospital systems and providers.
- June 3 – Diversity & Inclusion with Zoom executive Kim Blue. With keen insights and a strategic perspective, Kim Blue will share data on diversity and inclusion so providers will be aware of the impact of biases on care and employment, identify biases and share ways to bring awareness to provide care customized to the needs of each patient.
- June 17 – Supply Chain Excellence in the Post-Pandemic World with supply chain expert Mark Graban. Mark Graban will share lessons and best practices from his experience with a world-class supply chain in the computer industry and from leading health systems, and will explore proven ideas and methods that can help us all better prepare for the next unexpected event.
- July 15 – The Emotional Impact of Covid-19: Leading your Team Past COVID PTSD to an Emotionally Healthy Workplace with Nicole Lipkin. This session will explore how to shift to leadership behaviors and practices that help increase organizational and individual resilience and emotional sustainability to move away from the collective post-COVID-19 PTSD experience to one of deeper capacity, connection and organizational strength.
- August 19 – A Path Forward: Thriving in Rural Health Care after COVID-19 with Benjamin Anderson. Benjamin Anderson will share lessons learned through many interviews with rural health leaders and patients through the successful development of a post COVID-19 nationally released toolkit and playbook called Re-Imagining Leadership: A Pathway for Rural Health to Thrive in a COVID-19 World that was created in partnership with the Farley Health Policy Center.
