Trends, Tension, and Transformation:  
Maintaining Mission During Times of Change 

Unprecedented systemic forces threaten the sustainability of healthcare providers, forcing many organizations to strategically navigate the tension between financial sustainability while still maintaining mission. At the same time, the healthcare workforce is reporting historically high levels of disengagement across both clinical and administrative roles. In healthcare, our role as leaders and educators of future leaders is to make the hard decisions, while still facilitating connection to purpose, even amidst tremendous change. This keynote will describe the most impactful trends shaping our environment, how health systems can respond to them, and how leaders can more effectively undergo the necessary transformation to sustain their mission.
