Carolinas Governance Series: Understanding the Healthcare Workforce

The role of a hospital trustee continues to evolve, even more so in the current post-pandemic environment. To be prepared for the trends, decisions, and actions necessary to lead strong hospitals and health systems, trustees and administrators should take advantage of opportunities for shared learning experiences.

Following the success of the Fall 2021 joint virtual series, NCHA and SCHA have created an expanded and robust certification pathway for hospital trustees, including both a Foundations certification and an advanced certification.

The Foundations certification pathway will consist of 3 virtual sessions. The certification will focus on understanding the healthcare workforce, a top priority for health systems across the country. The first two virtual sessions will focus on what’s happened with the healthcare workforce post-pandemic and the board’s fiduciary duty to help guide strategic workforce planning. The third virtual session will focus on the trustee’s role in advancing policy to positively affect or influence the healthcare workforce.

For those who want to further expand their knowledgebase, and toolbox, NCHA and SCHA have created a one day in-person Capstone Summit which will dive deeper into all topics covered in the virtual sessions and will include interactive, small group, and table discussions. The in-person session is meant as a capstone and participants who complete both the Foundations Certificate and attend the in-person session will be awarded the 2022-23 Advanced Trustee Education Certificate.

All virtual sessions will be held on Thursdays from 11am-12:15pm and will be more than just PowerPoint presentations. The virtual sessions will be interactive allowing for comments, questions, and scenario discussions. All sessions will also be available on-demand following the live session.

The in-person Capstone Summit will be August 25, 2023, from 9:30am-3pm at a convenient location accessible to both states.
