D5: Engaging Junior Doctors and Emerging Leaders to Innovate and Improve Care

Friday, 4th May
11:00-12:15

Students and junior doctors are an often untapped resource when it comes to developing innovative ways of improving care and coming up with new solutions to everyday challenges. Both Aarhus University Hospital (AUH) and the IHI Open School have experience leveraging the knowledge and energy of these rising leaders and are here to share their lessons learned as well as key skills and resources you can take home to your organizations.

After this session, participants will be able to:

  • See students and junior doctors as a source of innovation and improvement

  • Identify available resources and lessons learned from a global educational network that can inform your own education and improvement efforts

  • Understand the role of leaders when working with young doctors and health professionals as a source of organizational innovation
