Significant changes are taking place in public health administration, financing, and service delivery. Is your organization ready? In the October session of Hot Topics in Practice, Public Health Director Dawn Emerick, EdD, describes how Clackamas County Health used change management principles to restructure their teams and services in advance of the state’s modernization efforts.

In this one-hour presentation, Emerick tells the end-to-end story of a complete realignment—from the first organizational readiness assessment to monitoring the outcomes. She will address how to tackle perennial challenges like recruitment and retention, working with unions, messaging the department’s value, and aligning a restructure with accreditation and other strategic planning efforts. She will also review key organizational theories and change communication tactics that help advance this work.
