MetadataShow full item record
Global health is in transition, with ever-changing influences, directions, and expanding stakeholders. Healthcare leaders of tomorrow need access to the best ways to navigate this transition. They will need to build teams, identify challenges, invent solutions, and set a shared vision in order to sustain long-term healthcare improvements and address the varying needs of the world's populations. The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) continues work to advance world health and prepare future leaders. STTI's Institute for Global Healthcare Leadership was created to develop innovative leaders in all fields of healthcare. Participation in the Institute for Global Healthcare Leadership will prepare healthcare leaders to effectively work in and/or lead major public health departments, public or private organizations, and global programs and initiatives, thereby directly and indirectly improving the health of people worldwide. Separate institutes will be available for both emerging and more experienced leaders. The Emerging Global Leader Institute is designed to prepare globally-aware healthcare leaders to successfully participate in global healthcare ventures and networking; become a global thought and practice leader, locally, and regionally; provide local and regional consultation to effectively meet dynamic contemporary global healthcare needs; and view healthcare issues from a global perspective. The Experienced Global Leader Institute is intended to prepare experienced global healthcare leaders to be global thought and practice leaders nationally and globally; successfully, lead, collaborate and participate in global healthcare ventures; assume and effectively meet the global demands of critical healthcare leadership positions within their countries; and provide national and global consultation to effectively meet dynamic contemporary global healthcare needs. This presentation will describe the STTI Institute for Global Healthcare Leadership framework, initial data and results from the inaugural Emerging Global Leader Institute that took place in early September 2016 in Washington, DC, and plans for launching the Experienced Healthcare Leadership Institute in 2018.
