Navigating Island Health Medical Leadership

Navigating Island Health Medical Leadership is an interactive workshop aimed to help leaders and aspiring leaders gain a deeper knowledge of the health system and practice health leadership administrative skills.  At the end of the workshop, leaders will be able to describe the role and value of medical leaders in health administration, explain key concepts of patient safety and quality, align medical leader performance goals with Island Health and the provincial health care system, and take steps to create a values-based workplace focused on safe patient-care.
