November 9, 2016: Well, that was quite an election cycle with shocking results for many.  So, where do we go from here?  How do we take what has been a divisive environment and unify a country to set sights on a clear vision for the future?  Or can we?  Are we talking transformation here or will it be business as usual?

3.0 Face-To-Face ACHE Education Credits

1:00 PM-1:15 PM  Welcome (Cristian Lieneck, Associate Professor, Texas State University School of Health Administration)  Introductory Remarks (CT and ST-ACHE Chapter Leadership)

1:15 PM-2:45 PM PANEL #1 – Ethical Challenges in Healthcare Leadership Ethical challenges arise in all aspects of healthcare and service, from the bedside to the boardroom. Hospital leaders and boards set the ethical compass of the organization by making decisions about priorities, policies and resource allocation as they determine the best ways to meet the needs of their communities, while respecting their staff and the populations they serve. Understanding the expanding paradigm of planning, creating and maintaining an ethical healthcare organization is crucial to help identify strategies for implementing ethics initiatives within your own organization. Healthcare leaders must “walk the talk” and demonstrate their commitment to ethics throughout their organization. Moderator: Eileen Morrison, MPH, EdD, Professor, TX State School of Health Administration Panelists: Perry Ann Reed, MBA, Director, Ethics and Palliative Care, Texas Children’s Hospital Dawn Seery, D.Be, MA, RN, Director of Ethics Integration, Ascension Texas Courtenay R. Bruce, JD, MA, Assistant Professor, Baylor College of Medicine

2:45PM-3:00PM Break (light refreshments provided)

3:00 PM-4:30PM PANEL #2 – Creating a Committed Workforce Health care leaders need to adopt a change in beliefs and organizational practice to regain a focus on safety, quality, service, and financial performance objectives to ultimately achieve sustainable excellence. Discussion includes the importance of one’s perceptions, beliefs and individual leader behavior, new research on the science of change and adaptive human behavior, key elements of employee engagement, and the imperative to redesign the current health care organizational model to focus on the key elements of performance competitive advantage – self-awareness, collaboration, and connection. Moderator: Patrick D. Shay, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Trinity University Panelists: Michael Roussos, Hospital Administrator, University Health System Barry Burns, Vice President of HR, Methodist Healthcare System LTC David Parker, FACHE, COO, BrookeArmy Medical Center
