Target Audience:

All health care leaders, including nursing, lab, pharmacy, therapies, radiology, nutrition, admissions, etc., who want to build their mentoring/leadership skills

Program Description: 

This workshop is geared to any health care professional role, including nursing, lab, pharmacy, therapies, radiology, nutrition, admissions, etc. Pairing experienced health care professionals with new employees has the potential to quickly bring classroom learning to real life competence. But being skilled in one’s technical role and being an able teacher are two different roles. This 2-day*workshop will build those teaching and mentoring skills necessary to engage new employees in a way that builds competence and confidence for both learner and mentor. It provides opportunities for practice and feedback related to the essential skill set for preceptors through simulation learning and role-playing scenarios.
