Launch of new community of practice on change management

One of the greatest challenges for healthcare is transforming services to suit the needs of patients and to improve delivery of care. The concept of integrated care is not new, but to achieve fully integrated care pathway for patients, transformation is essential. Change management is a key skill required for any individual trying to improve and change the way a healthcare system currently operates. Change is disruptive, inconvenient and people are not happy moving from their comfort zones and “what already works”.

The aim of this community of practice for change management is to support colleagues and share experiences in implementing new healthcare services and technology, or changing the way care is currently delivered.

The CoP is a support tool for those who have specific questions on change management, but is also a platform for sharing experiences and challenges. It will be a place to celebrate success and to share learning outcomes.

Over the weeks and months the community will become a reservoir of knowledge for participants based on shared experienced and an evidenced based source of information. Members can share journal articles, interest pieces and information they feel with contribute to the knowledge and benefit members.
