What is High Reliability Healthcare? - Cohort 2

March 6, 2024

We offer 10 interactive sessions for high reliability, which help participants identify essential leadership skills, activities, and behaviors required to bring about cultural, knowledge, learning system, and leadership changes using the Framework for High Reliability Healthcare.

Each session provides baseline high reliability knowledge, recommended tools and interventions to improve teamwork, work setting environment, knowledge creation using data and transparency, building capacity and capability for improvement, supported by effective high reliability leadership skills, activities, and behaviors.

Each session begins with shared reflection on the previous session and ends with homework to test tools and interventions with the expectation to report testing experience back in the following session.
