Alfred ICU team wins Metropolitan Health Workforce Initiative Section of the inaugural People in Health Awards

Owen Roodenburg, Mark Krnjaik, our organisational development consultant and Amy McKimm and the After Hours Working Group at Alfred Health were nominated for and won an award at the inaugural People in Health Awards, at a ceremony held at the Melbourne Museum on the evening of 22/5/14.

Our nomination: "Out of Hours: a workforce model and training program” was the winner in the Metropolitan Health Workforce Initiative Section.

Attached is a link to the nomination, which gives some details of The leadership programme we have built around three learning principles: experience, exposure, and education. This Certificate of Clinical Leadership course includes mandatory, structured teaching and interactive sessions throughout the year and includes sessions on “strategic vs. tactical leadership”, “conflict resolution and negotiation” and “leading change management”.


We are currently exploring the possibility of linking this to a University certificate/diploma course.
