In June 2024 IPALA will host a three-day virtual leadership conference.
Day 1 Advocacy
Advocacy in pedatrics means speaking out on behalf of children and young people. This not only implies to the individual children and families that we see, but also applies to development of health policy and organisations. How can advocacy be used by pediatricians in the global fight to improve child health and children’s rights?
Day 2 Managing self and managing others
To be an effective leader we first need to understand and manage ourselves. Increasing self-knowledge and emotional intelligence can help us with relationship management and the building of successful teams. Team leadership for the pediatrician: developing insights into group and individual behaviours, how to influence a positive work culture and develop performance management skills.
Day 3 Leadership, patient safety and developing resilience
Leading through developing cultures of listening and psychological safety. How we develop an open culture, within and across teams, to improve patient safety? Learning to cope in stressful situations, managing work life balance and developing resilience are all key stills that need to be developed to have a successful pediatric career.
A full program and registration details will be provided shortly.
