Why it's needed:

Research undertaken within the Australian healthcare sector has proven that there is a direct correlation between healthcare leadership and quality outcomes for both employees and patients. Employee experience has been shown to be directly informed by the work environment and culture cultivated and facilitated by healthcare managers, which in turn has a direct impact on patient outcomes. Therefore, education specifically for newly promoted healthcare managers is essential for fostering the appropriate skills, traits and insights proven to be fundamental in cultivating a positive employee experience. A key aspect of this education is addressing the unique challenges new managers are likely to face in the healthcare sector.

Purpose

To educate those seeking career development on the essential competencies required of healthcare managers in order to achieve improved quality outcomes for both staff and patients.
