How can concepts of individual resilience be adapted to support an agile healthcare team and system?
Join us for Leading Across Professions 2021, a 2-day, interactive virtual conference to explore tools that are known to support individual resilience. Learn how to strengthen these tools at the team and systems level, creating resilient interprofessional teams and systems characterized by nimble adaptation under dynamic circumstances. This annual event will include speakers, panelists, cases, and evidence-based frameworks that support this cognitive trajectory: from self, to your team, to your organization or system.
By the end of the conference, you will be able to:
Dr. Arnold, a neonatologist, serves as medical director for the Simulation Center at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. The center enables training in a realistic clinical environment on high-risk or emergency situations in such configurations as a trauma center, critical care unit, patient rooms and neonatal intensive care unit.
Under Dr. Arnold’s leadership, Johns Hopkins All Children’s training is expanding beyond the clinical staff and graduate medical students to include instruction for parents on how they should care for premature babies at home. Previously, Dr. Arnold led the Simulation Center at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston.
Dr. Arnold received her medical degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland, and completed a residency, master of science in medical education, and neonatal-perinatal fellowship training at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and University of Pittsburgh Medical School.
Dr. Arnold routinely speaks, does presentations and contributes to books and journals on simulation techniques and their benefits toward medical education.
Brad Morrison is fascinated with the challenges people face in accomplishing what they set out to do in organizations. His research focuses on two areas: 1) human performance in dynamically challenging health care contexts and 2) implementation, which he has studied in several contexts, such as process improvement settings and firms adopting the practices of lean manufacturing. He examines the paradoxes of building organizational capability and implementing innovations. For example, why do the actions some managers take foster the very problems they are attempting to solve?
His methods blend organization theory with tools of system dynamics, feedback theory, mathematical modeling and computer simulation to elucidate the relationships between structure in systems and the patterns of dynamic behavior they exhibit over time.
Brad has previously taught at the Sloan School at M.I.T. and in executive education in a variety of settings. He has been a partner at a leading global management consulting firm and has more than 15 years of consulting experience in the retail and consumer products and healthcare industries. He has assisted dozens of organizations wrestling with change in areas such as product development, sourcing, and supply chain management. He has extensive experience in Asia where he has worked in 11 countries for his clients from North America, Asia, and Europe. He has also worked in cancer research and in banking.
In 2012, he was recognized for his work on dynamic problem solving as the recipient of the Jay W. Forrester Award from the System Dynamics Society for the best published work in the field for the preceding five years.
Health professionals, educators, managers and leaders who are responsible for ensuring their teams are able to be agile and function successfully during unpredictable circumstances.
