Sustaining and strengthening a relentless focus on doing the right thing every day in every area is an enduring challenge for even the most ethical organizations. And it's a challenge made more difficult as stress and uncertainty mount in this time of fundamental change.

This proactive, half-day seminar will explore effective, intentional and practical ways for healthcare leaders to intensify their organization's focus on doing the right thing by leveraging their own leadership to create realistic solutions to the ethical dilemmas and challenges they encounter. Key learning outcomes include:

  • Greater understanding of the ethical health of your organization
  • Clarity on pathways to leveraging your organization's strengths and reducing its vulnerabilities
  • Immediate personal action steps consistent with that clarity

Jack Gilbert, EdD, FACHE, is a clinical associate professor and director of executive and professional development in the College of Health Solutions and the College of Nursing and Health Innovation at Arizona State University in Phoenix. He is also a Lincoln Scholar in the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics and a contributor on ethics to Healthcare Executive magazine. Dr. Gilbert will lead this seminar by sharing the outcomes of his research and results of working with healthcare organizations on some of their most pressing ethical issues.

A select panel of healthcare leaders will react to Dr. Gilbert's remarks and share their experiences with tackling ethical challenges in their organizations.
