Rural Health Resource Center offers ‘Leading through Change’ podcast series
The National Rural Health Resource Center is offering a new podcast series, "Managing from the Middle: Leading through Change." Through the NRHRC's work with rural hospitals, a need has emerged for education directed towards mid-level managers (MLMs) on the "why" and "how" of value-based care and population health, as well as tools and strategies to help MLMs lead others in this time of change. With the support of the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy, this six-part podcast series, which began June 23, was developed by the Small Rural Hospital Transition Project.
In this inaugural episode, listeners will begin to understand the transition to value-based care and population health and why mid-level management plays a critical role. Joining the conversation are Kyle Southerland, Special Projects and Community Health Coordinator with Bacon County Hospital in Georgia, and Terry Hill, Senior Advisor for Rural Health Leadership and Policy at the National Rural Health Resource Center
New episodes will be aired every Tuesday, with the next slated for Tuesday, June 30 on "Working through Change." Subsequent events will be held on July 7 on "A Leader's Role," July 14 on "Helping Others Navigate the Change Process," on July 21 on "Managing Emotions During Change," and July 28 on "Change Management through the Transition to Value."
