Transforming Relationships to Meet the Needs of Patients and Care Providers
Jody Hoffer Gittell, PhD (Professor, The Heller School for Social Policy and Management, Brandeis University), kicked off the GRJ Forum at the October 2019 Education Leadership COnference (ELC) keynote address.
Overview: The healthcare sector is experimenting with new care delivery models that require higher levels of coordination among professionals and with patients. At the same time, an increasingly diverse healthcare workforce is looking for
more satisfying ways of working together. Relational coordination - coordinating work through shared goals, shared knowledge and mutual respect - can help to meet both of these needs. In this keynote you will learn how relational coordination
drives patient outcomes and professional well-being, how organizations can build relational coordination, and how you can implement relational coordination in your own work as care providers and leaders.
