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.
