  • The steps in Kotter’s 8-step model
  • Practical examples of the steps in practice

Target audience

Health professionals wishing to drive change in their workplace, but who are unsure where to start.

Purpose

Enhance knowledge of change management theory and strategies to drive change within your organisation to ensure processes are improved, and as a result patient outcomes are improved.

Need

Health professionals are fundamental in identifying the need for change, but often they have not been equipped with the skills to drive continuous quality improvement process. However, patient outcomes can be significantly improved when change champions are identified and improved standards can be set. Much research is available as to why change fails, but there is also evidence to show that change can be created and sustained if an effective and simple model is followed.

Health professionals in Australia that are registered with AHPRA are required to obtain continuing professional development (CPD) hours/points each year that relates to their context of practice, in order to comply with mandatory regulatory requirements.
