Topic: Getting Executive Buy-In & Sponsorship for Healthcare Education

You have great ideas about how to educate patients, families, communities, caregivers, and support staff.  Why don't they get approved?

As healthcare educators and managers we're often so close to the work and our learners that it's hard to navigate the world of organizational needs and funding.  As a result, great education ideas fizzle right in the presentation or email to organizational decision-makers.

Hennepin County Medical Center's Chief Financial Officer, Larry Kryzaniak, and Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Meghan Walsh, will discuss what they need to hear in order to approve the time, people, and money necessary to get your education ideas moving, and just as importantly what's necessary to find a sponsor to keep things moving.

In this session, you'll learn:
  • Key steps in communicating an education vision to senior leadership
  • The importance of presenting options
  • How to establish a relationship with senior leadership
  • Next steps once you get approval
