This series will make available a series of eight videos that educate and inspire discussion on healthcare work force challenges and opportunities. This launch event will include keynotes, a panel discussion and informal viewing of the video seminars that will be released to the public at this event.
Colorado Springs health sector partnership (COShealth) created a Healthcare Work Force Enablement Seminar Series. The public is invited to attend the launch of this series.
The Series is a set of eight short videos that will develop the healthcare workforce in our community by addressing key issues facing health care employers and health care workers (or those interested in health care as a career). The COShealth Workforce Enablement Seminar Series provides the local healthcare industry with educational and innovative content that encourages healthcare workforce best practices. There are eight topics that have been identified by the community as important. These are the themes for each video in the series:
The videos do two things:
This is done by offering convenient training options to health care employers and employees, as well as people considering a health care career. These people typically have stringent time constraints and budgetary concerns. These videos will be made available for individual viewing and for small-group viewing sessions hosted by local advocates. The viewing sessions will include discussion on the video topics, with summaries of the discussion posted back to the video website. These summaries will then be additional material for ensuing viewing sessions and individual study.
After the launch, a number of companies and organizations in our region will host small sessions to view and discuss one or more of the videos. A schedule of these initial viewing sessions will be available at this launch event. Viewing sessions also will be listed on the learning series web site event calendar. The goal is to create material and forums for learning that will dynamically engage the health care sector in improving the work force throughout 2016 and 2017.
