Best Practice Champions Virtual Workshop - Session 1

Dec 2, 2021, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
About this Event:

The Best Practice Champions Network team has established a new, two-part Best Practice Champions Virtual Workshop to replace the in-person champions workshops. This free, online educational opportunity consists of a brief pre-recorded introductory video, and two live virtual sessions to be completed in sequential order. 

The Best Practice Champions Virtual Workshop series will be offered monthly, with Session 1 and Session 2 taking place once a month. This will provide you with ample opportunity to select the live session that best suits your work schedule. This online educational opportunity can be completed individually or as a group. 

The virtual workshop sessions are each three hours in length; these live sessions must be completed in sequential order by April 2022 in order for you to become a Best Practice Champion and receive your Champion's certificate. You must register for Session 1 and Session 2 separately.*

After each live, online session, participants are expected to complete reflections and activities based on the content presented in each session. After completing the pre-recorded introductory video and attending Sessions 1 and 2, you will become a Best Practice Champion and member of the Best Practice Champions Network. You will receive a certificate of completion after all elements of the training are complete. 

Similar to the in-person workshop, but in a virtual format, participants are introduced to best practice guidelines and will learn how to successfully implement them using RNAO's Leading Change Toolkit™.
