Moving beyond surviving to thriving in times of transition – Sustainability and Transition Planning Tools for Healthy Start

Every organization experiences change. How successfully they deal with that change determines how well they will meet their mission for years to come. The most common change is a leadership transition, but changes to mission, structure, and funding can also occur.  All of these changes potentially impact sustainability and require some level of transition planning.  While we can’t always control changes, we can influence the outcomes to some extent through sustainability and transition planning.

During this conversation-style webinar, we will address the following points

  1. Provide an overview of sustainability and transition planning;
  2. Provide an overview of a sustainability framework to support programs developing an organizational sustainability plan; and
  3. Describe three levels of communication as the most important aspect of addressing change and implementing sustainability and transition plan;
  4. Incorporate ways in which strides and gains can be maintained.

 During the webinar, we will have a panel discussion about why sustainability and transition planning is relevant for Healthy Start; provide an overview of the CoIIN developed sustainability and transition planning packages; as well as hear about two real-world examples of implementing a sustainability plan and transition plan. Opportunities to share your own experience and ask questions will be offered.

Five Practical Strategies for Managing Successful Improvement Projects

You have a great idea for an improvement project to reduce infection rates at your organization. You and your team have created a meaningful aim, crafted a useful set of measures, and brainstormed several creative change ideas to test in the coming months. There’s support from leadership, energy from staff, and excitement around every corner. You’re ready to go!

Except for one thing — now you need to successfully manage the project.

Managing a quality improvement project is a critical skill for anyone interested in making care — and systems — better where they work. But for many in health care, project management is not a full-time job. In fact, there’s a sizable gap between coming up with a great idea for a project and guiding a team to successful, meaningful improvements. Bridging that gap is what we discussed on this WIHI.

Whether you’re about to manage your first improvement project or your 50th, whether you manage teams of four or teams of 40, this episode of WIHI will show you the strategies you can test and use immediately, examples you can share with colleagues, and valuable tools you can bring to your next quality improvement project.
