AHHC of NC
On behalf of the AHHC Board of Directors, we would like to welcome you to the 2021 AHHC Fall Leadership Conference and beautiful Wrightsville Beach. Over the last year, home and hospice care providers have once again demonstrated the unique and lasting value we bring to patients, families, and our entire health care system. Now more than ever, there is a growing recognition that home and hospice care is central and paramount to creating a high quality system of care designed around the needs and expectations of those we serve. We are truly navigating open water - one where we have an opportunity to chart our course, steer our ships, and shape our growing impact while also balancing the complexity of our future environment. We are excited to offer an array of top notch educational content, networking opportunities, and solution partners with our fall leadership conference as home and hospice care leaders navigate this open water and all the vast opportunities ahead with it.
Navigating with Joy-Based Resilience!
Monday Morning General Session, November 8, 2021
Becky Sansbury, M.Div.
Becky is an author, grief and resilience expert, and retired hospice chaplain.
Join us Monday morning as we come together for the first time in almost two years! The relentless medical, social, and personal storms of 2020-21 tested the resilience of leaders and agencies. Ironically, that tumultuous time was steadied by one unifying force. We were all in crisis response mode. As we move into a time mixed with rising hope, remaining peril, and strongly divergent opinions, what will sustain your programs and nurture your people? In this action-focused session, Becky Sansbury will share current joy-based resiliency practices she is using with organizations as wide-ranging as Red Hat Inc. and Blueprint Medicines. Using case studies and interactive dialogue, Becky will guide you in turning principles into actions that offer strength and stability for you and your team. Becky’s unique background as an experienced hospice chaplain who translated end-of-life wisdom for the matter-of-fact business world equips her to welcome your questions and facilitate open discussion.
Leveraging Our Diversity and Creating Inclusive Environments in Our Organizations, Communities and Beyond
Monday Afternoon General Session
Monday, November 8, 2021 | 3:00pm-4:00pm
This panel will explore how home and hospice care organizations can proactively work to create more diverse and inclusive environments and leverage this as a differentiator. The concept of implicit bias will be explored, and panelists will share how their organization made intentional inclusion a priority and how this has impacted culture, retention, staff engagement, and a sense of belonging at all levels. The role of community partnerships and health equity will also be a part of this conversation.
