Intend Health Program News: Recent Happenings

We continue to deliver engaging, customized programming to healthcare providers, students, and institutions across the country. Here is a recap of recent Intend Health program news.

With a generous grant from the Cambia Health Foundation, we are piloting a new RL delivery format that interweaves training and application. Our first cohort consists of staff from safety-net clinics throughout Washington State, and we anticipate much learning ahead.

We are delighted to continue to partner with the AAFP on the Primary Care Leadership Collaborative (PCLC), a leadership program for students of family medicine. Teams engage in skill-building workshops and long-term, team-based coaching support; they then apply their learning to design and implement a health-equity or community project. Currently engaging 80+ students and faculty members, the program kicked off virtually in April, with two additional RL sessions in May and June to prepare for the in-person national conference July 27 and 28, 2022 in Kansas City, Missouri.

We are excited to launch our new 2022-23 PCP Student Action Network cohort with 13 dedicated student teams from across the country, facilitating connection and opportunities for growth in support of the community projects they create to promote primary care and to address issues such as health equity, opioid use, and mental health. They begin with an introductory virtual session in August, followed by a virtual weekend of RL content and community at our annual Leadership Summit in September. Team coaches will provide continuing support throughout the year.

We are proud to unveil our newly updated Relational Leadership Framework. Updated in collaboration with community members from multiple programs, this framework identifies the principles of Relational Culture and its impact at the individual, team, and system levels.

The Relational Leadership Institute/Initiative has successfully completed our ninth cohort at Oregon Health Science University and our sixth cohort at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and we are looking ahead to offering Fall cohorts at both institutions. After our final RLI gathering at our University of Utah site, we will be sunsetting this program and are excited to explore and share new opportunities within the institution.

Relational Leadership for Clinician Leaders (RLCL, an initiative of OCHIN): Wrapping up our second cohort for RLCL, we developed two new trainers and partnered with returning trainers to offer this twelve-week, one-hour-per-week program that aligns with our updated Relational Leadership Framework. The Fall 2022 cohort is being planned.

In April, we wrapped up a four-part program for Sam Houston State University School of Nursing. Our focus was team development, and we touched on the topics of psychological safety, stages of team development, a culture of feedback, and more. This was a wonderful opportunity to work with a new community and learn how to best support an intact team moving through an extensive evolution. We are looking forward to exploring where we go next!
