The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) Clinical Leadership Workshop is a dynamic and interactive one-day workshop. It is based on JBI’s history over the past 20 years, together with the best available evidence regarding clinical leadership. Open to clinical leaders and leaders-to-be from all health care disciplines, the workshop involves a mix of facilitator-led group discussion, guided learning, personal reflection and analytical exercises. The Clinical Leadership Workshop provides participants with information and practical techniques to create a more positive, personal and professional culture back in their workplace. It also helps participants to identify strategies that will assist in managing difficult behavior, building productive teams and implementing change, thereby enabling effective leadership of projects and people. Our facilitators guide participants through contemporary models and tools to enable them to develop understandings and strategies related to clinical leadership and change management in health care using real world examples.
