Intend Health Program News: August Update

Here is the latest news about Relational Leadership (RL) programming and partnerships:

Cambia-Sponsored Programming: Funded by a generous grant from the Cambia Health Foundation, we completed a four-session summer cohort on Relational Leadership with an Equity Lens in June. Our appreciation goes to the Washington Association for Community Health and the Idaho Primary Care Association for promoting this cohort to their community health center members. and to our trainers, Stephanie Brown from UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine and Kate Stitham from Integrative Inquiry.

Currently, we're underway with the third Cambia-sponsored cohort on Relational Practices in Quality Improvement, with the fourth and final session happening on August 23.

RLI @ Carolina Summer 2023 Cohort: Our inaugural summer cohort, with 30 participants, concluded in June. We innovated with a new format, delivering four days of content in two-day blocks, all online. This flexible design and summer schedule accommodated busy schedules and facilitated participation from those at the UNC School of Medicine. For the coming academic year, RLI @ Carolina plans in-person sessions but may continue online summer cohorts for those who cannot participate during the fall or spring semesters. Special thanks to Josh Hinson, director of Relational Leadership @ Carolina, for leading this cohort, and to the team of facilitators and trainers.

UNC Physicians Network: We completed a comprehensive two-month, five-session Relational Leadership program for UNC Physicians Network and their shared services partners in June. We extend our gratitude to Michael Wolcott, Christina Kelly, Hillary Szczerbinski, and Kyle Turner. Their excellent guidance fostered engaging in-person and online learning environments. With 26-30 participants, we're excited to evaluate the impact of Relational Leadership practices within intact teams.

The RLI@OHSU Spring 2023 Cohort wrapped up in June after ten weekly, in-person sessions. Programming was delivered in a new format and entirely in person for the first time since the pandemic. Participants provided positive feedback, indicating that the weekly, “semester-like” cadence was conducive for digesting, reflecting on, and retaining information. Thank you to Alexander Mansour and the dedicated OHSU (Oregon Health & Science University) facilitators and trainers for delivering an outstanding program.
