This workshop will build on the AGPAL stage one Health Care Homes or Health Care Homes Readiness training, revolving around topics which include:

  • Empowering staff for new roles
  • Deep dive into high performing teams
  • Preventing burnout amidst a sea of change
  • Using data to make significant, well-informed changes during practice transformation; and
