AAHPM Leadership Forum: Ascend
2018 Ascend: Leading and Managing Through Change
October 7-9, 2018
The Hyatt Lodge, Oak Brook, IL
Registered attendees must have completed their evaluation by November 19 to receive CME or MOC credits.
The Ascend program helps hospice and palliative care professionals develop the capabilities required to lead their organization in implementing new directions.
The first evening focused on key lessons in leadership. This year’s presenter was HPM visionary Martha Twaddle, MD. Martha shared insights from her leadership journey including how to anticipate, recognize, and adapt to changes at various career stages and situations.
The following day, Kathleen Neuendorf, MD led participants through a highly interactive session on effectively engaging teams by creating an environment of safety, value, and communication. Attendees also took part in networking opportunities with HPM colleagues and leaders. The small groups used case-based learning techniques to navigate difficult situations and resolve challenges in a variety of hospice and palliative care settings.
On the final day, Darryl Harris, an internationally renowned speaker, trainer, facilitator, and coach helped participants uncover creative ways to empower and energize teams, team leaders, managers, and staff. Ascend attendees discovered why transitions are often challenging and how leaders can successfully overcome passive and active resistance to new initiatives.
