BackgroundIn response to feedback from last year's Leadership Forum participants, the organizers along with the executive directors and executive medical directors have designed a new format for this year. These sessions have been created to support skill-building in leaders at the management level and above. This is an opportunity for patient partners to network with some of Island Health's innovative leaders, strengthen their own leadership skills, and apply their learning to relevant Island Health engagement activities. There will be a final presentation at the Leadership U session.
