Canadian Conference of Physician Leadership

Healing our Health System: Leadership for Renewal

The Canadian Society of Physician Leaders is hosting a Canadian Conference on Physician Leadership May 26 and 27, 2023 in Vancouver, BC.

Through face-to-face discussions with colleagues and international experts, participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Recognize how the idea of hope and a ‘Renew the Future’ perspective can shift one’s position to becoming an active protagonist in making the changes the healthcare system needs.
  • Know what is meant by Slow Medicine and how medicine is better understood as a craft and a profession than as a commodity.
  • Discuss how leaders can apply a systems framework to address intractable healthcare problems.
  • Identify the elements of a learning and work environment that promotes critical consciousness development, as well as the flourishing of diverse members, within it.
  • Develop an approach to early intervention in conflict to promote constructive engagement and conflict solutions.
  • Describe collaborative design and how it can be applied to problem-solving to improve patient care.
  • Recognize how leadership responses can help and harm teams and individuals that are physically and emotionally depleted.
  • Identify and co-create key strategies used in the Emergency Health Services system of care that can be applied to your own local healthcare ecosystem.
  • Discuss and practice the capabilities of the LEADS leadership framework through the sharing of personal and professional issues in a fireside chat format.
  • Explore perspectives on the potential for digital health and virtual care to enhance patient experiences, during a time of strained healthcare resources.
  • Define and examine a holistic applicant review and outcomes-based approach to selecting and hiring to meet community-identified needs.
  • Discuss specific methods to communicate clearly, run effective meetings and have high stakes conversations
