The 2018 Graduate Program and Practitioner Workshop (formerly known as Leaders Conference) will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Chicago on Tuesday, March 27, in conjunction with ACHE’s Congress. In addition to the keynote speaker, David B. Nash , MD, MPA, Dean of the Jefferson College of Population Health, the Workshop will feature a program focusing on difficult conversations – both those planned and unplanned. As educators, we have a special role as facilitators when those conversations involve students or colleagues regarding student issues. Most of us, however, have little or no training in how to handle these conversations as they arise. We dodge ...

​ The AUPHA Board of Directors, at their meeting earlier this week, approved a request to advance the recently formed Interprofessional Education Discussion Group to a Faculty Forum.  The Board voted to bypass the normal process of transition from a discussion group to a fully developed Forum as the topic of Interprofessional Education has been an item on the Board’s agenda since June of 2017. An organizational meeting of the new Forum will be held at the 2018 Annual Meeting in Philadelphia.

​ New Year, New Beginnings, and a chance to Look Forward Last week, the semester started at Winthrop and, as I have for many years, I showed the Did You Know (Shift Happens) video in the Introduction to Healthcare Management Class.  The first video came out in 2007 and was created by Karl Fisch, and modified by Scott McLeod.  I show this video to start a discussion with students, specifically focusing on two key facts.  The first is we are currently preparing students for jobs that don’t yet exist, using technologies that have not yet been invented. The second is that the amount of technical information is doubling every two years.  That means for students ...

​ Spring is Coming  I know that it is early but the days are getting longer. This gives me hope and joy because I, for one, no longer like cold weather and find that DC has a tolerable amount of cold for me. I do not hate the cold enough to avoid going to Chicago for the March 27 th Graduate Program and Practitioner Workshop, however. Thanks to the great work of the Graduate Program Committee and its chair Dr. Cindy Watts, and a contact provided by Dr. Anthony Stanowski (President and CEO of CAHME), we have an outstanding program planned. The theme this year, “Who is the “We” in We the People?” provided us with a very broad target to address. We started ...

This year's Graduate Program and Practitioner Workshop will be held in Chicago on March 27, 2018, from 7:00am-12:00Noon, in conjunction with ACHE’s Congress. The Workshop’s theme is Who is the “We” in We the People? and highlights the need to engage in those “difficult conversations” in the classroom and in the workplace that are often put off or avoided permanently. Until and unless there is some agreement on this core value among those whose voices are heard, health care policy will remain contentious and chaotic, and progress toward a singular aim will be difficult. This year's program will include speakers and presenters that will benefit both faculty ...
