Description of CME Course
When you think of a leader, who comes to mind? A president? A CEO? This course will teach you a different idea of leadership: No matter your position or formal title, you can be a leader. In this course, you’ll learn about a hospital that’s having some trouble with infection control. As you grapple with the case, you’ll learn that leadership isn’t a position of authority – it’s an action. You’ll learn how to persuade different types of people and build enough unity to move forward. Finally, you’ll learn some strategies for sustaining your leadership journey over time.
Correct answers to the post-test; Recommended literature or other resources (presentations, audio/video, checklists, etc.)
