Advancing Healthcare Workforce Transitioning shares with educators and healthcare professionals alike the awareness, integration, and partnership that resulted from a successful process of framing an emergent Healthcare Management Program around standard competencies. To transition toward a successful healthcare career requires proficiencies in communication, leadership, professionalism, knowledge of the healthcare environment, and business skills. Competencies provided context to curriculum construction and built awareness of the role this standard plays in a career-ready workforce. Integrating professional development and service learning into co-curricular activities further strengthened outcomes. Partnering with healthcare professionals through ongoing World Café conversations, contributed a touchstone about expectations and accountabilities to be successful in a career.
This book draws on the World Café methodology, guidelines, and vignettes in developing performance assessment, coaching, training and performance reviews. The author provides lessons learned throughout the text to illustrate the points made in the chapters. It also provides a proven participatory methodology applied to competency exploration, application, and authentication.
