Please join us on May 5-7 in Philadelphia for a new workshop, Leading Adaptive Change, and leave with approaches for engaging your organization to tackle stubborn challenges in patient safety.

Too often, patient safety and quality improvement efforts fail because they focus on technical changes—such as introducing new tools and technologies—without addressing the values, beliefs and attitudes of the group involved in the work. Presented in collaboration with Plexus Institute, this three-day program provides participants with concrete methods and tools for adaptive change, so that their organizations can:

  • Engage groups to solve problems together
  • Bring about behavior change
  • Devise innovative solutions
  • Create sustainable improvement

Health care organizations face seemingly intractable problems, whether it’s poor teamwork, weak hand-hygiene performance or broken processes. Using adaptive change methods, patient safety champions can create the conditions for break-through improvement.

Program Objectives

  • Understand what an adaptive challenge is
  • Differentiate adaptive from technical quality and safety challenges
  • Apply newly experienced and learned interactive methods to their organization's current adaptive challenges
  • Recognize the role of leadership in supporting adaptive improvement work


This workshop led by the Plexus Institute features:

  • Interactive working sessions
  • Action learning, enabling participants to experience while learning adaptive improvement methods
  • Skills that will beimmediately applicable upon return to participants organizations, with value to the individual, team and organization

Who Should Attend

  • Directors and managers in patient safety and quality improvement at hospitals
  • Champions and coaches on Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP) teams
  • Performance improvement specialists in areas such as Lean Sigma
  • Anyone in a formal or informal leadership position on their clinical unit, department or health care organization
