Webinar: Healer, Leader, Partner – the role of the physician-leader in leading change in healthcare
18 September 2019, 9:30 – 10:30am AEST

Physicians undertake a noble, demanding profession, improving patients’ lives. But the rapidly changing world of healthcare, and the complex knowledge and technology involved, challenges this calling. Physicians need to be healers, confidants, and caregivers while developing skills as leaders and partners. This new book by Dr Jack Cochran (available here) provides practical, actionable learning to help physicians become effective, compassionate, and confident leaders, transforming healthcare into what patients want, need, and deserve.

In this webinar Dr Jas Saini will interview author of Leader, Healer, Partner – A Manual For Effective Physician Leadership, Dr Jack Cochran, about the role of the physician-leader in leading change in healthcare.

About Dr Jack Cochran
Jack recently retired as Executive Director (CEO) of The Permanente Federation, headquartered in Oakland, California after a career that included both executive and clinical leadership roles. As a frequent speaker and author on a broad range of health care topics including health care delivery system reform, integrated care delivery, and health information systems, Dr. Cochran’s insights gained from decades of work on the front lines of health care provide a unique perspective which he shares in The Doctor Crisis: How Physicians Can, and Must Lead the Way to Better Health Care, a book he co-authored and now in Leader, Healer, Partner – A manual for effective physician leadership.

Dr. Cochran serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the National Quality Forum, the American Alliance of Community Health Plans, the American Medical Group Foundation, and the UCSF Global Health Group Advisory Board. For more than 30 years, he has volunteered his reconstructive surgery and consulting services in Third World countries, aiding underserved populations in Nicaragua, the Philippines, Ecuador, Tanzania, and Nepal. Dr. Cochran is also a past president of the Consortium for Community Centered Comprehensive Child Care (C6), a foundation that has built hospitals in East Africa. He is a vocal advocate for nurses and oversees the Lois and John Cochran Education Award, an annual scholarship given to oncology nurses at the Lutheran Medical Center in Denver, Colorado.
