The health and well-being of the IHI community is our top priority. Please read IHI's COVID-19 mask and vaccination policy before registering for any IHI course or conference with an in-person component.

Are you charged with leading or supporting the well-being of your organization’s workforce? The Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI's) Leadership for Workforce Well-Being Professional Development Program, takes place in person on April 25–26, 2023, in Boston, MA, and later meets online. This blended learning opportunity will help ensure that you have the skills, tools, and methods to be the transformational leader your organization needs.

Caring for your workforce is not only the right thing to do, it is essential to stem the tide of challenges presented before and amplified by the pandemic, such as burnout, retention, and recruitment. High-performing organizations know that if they are to be recognized as industry leaders, deliver exceptional care, and meet financial goals, then they must make the well-being of their workforce a top priority. To accomplish this, they need highly trained and specialized leaders of workforce well-being.

This program, led by faculty Jonathan Ripp, MD, MPH, and Cynda Hylton Rushton, PhD, RN, FAAN, is designed to be interprofessional and for both current and aspirational workforce well-being leaders.

Join us for solutions-focused learning in an inclusive space built for discovering, listening, and practicing. Leave this program empowered with proven methods and a new narrative about well-being, ready to lead change in your system.
