Nemours Children’s Health System releases Policy Leadership for Health Care Transformation: Formalizing our Commitment to Communities

Nemours Children’s Health System (on behalf of the Moving Health Care Upstream initiative) and the Public Health Institute (on behalf of the Alignment of Governance and Leadership in Healthcare initiative) are excited to announce the release of Policy Leadership for Health Care Transformation: Formalizing our Commitment to Communities. The executive summary and full paper are available on Moving Health Care Upstream’s website. Through this project, Nemours and PHI engaged 18 hospital and health systems seen as leaders in the upstream movement, specific to health care & community partnership that address social determinants of health. Examples from these leaders were synthesized into an organizing framework consisting of two major categories, or Foundational Pillars: internally-focused Institutional Policy Strategies and externally-focused Civic Engagement Strategies, each with sub-categories. The framework (which is fleshed out with detailed examples as well as sample documents shared by participating hospitals and health systems) is designed to serve as an actionable roadmap for hospitals and health systems in earlier stages of their own upstream journeys. Please contact [email protected] for questions or more information.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation published in an article the winner of the 2017 RWJF Culture of Health Award. Live Healthy, Live Well, ‘Live Algoma’ is the alliterative title of the article discussing the huge success of Algoma, Wisconsin with a population of 3,126. From teenagers leading strength training for older members of the population to community nurses offering exercise and nutrition information to diabetic residents, Live Algoma has found ways to improve all aspects of its community. Meanwhile, they are empowering agents of change, individuals assuming a leading role in improving the health and wellbeing of their community. Click here to read the article.

In November 2018, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) released a white paper titled “IHI Psychology of Change Framework to Advance and Sustain Improvement”. This white paper is a guide for all leaders interested in understanding the underlying psychology of change and leveraging its power to impact quality improvement efforts: to achieve breakthrough results, sustainably, at scale. It presents a framework and set of methods for the psychology of change — five interrelated domains of practice that organizations can use to advance and sustain improvement.
