Managing the change process within public health organizations is important to ensure improved organizational performance. However, the change process poses formidable challenges. Managers are also facing increased pressure to respond to environmental influences and provide the necessary leadership to their organizations in the change process. In fact, managing organizational change has become a key competency for healthcare managers. In this talk, best practices to establish a change-oriented organization with the culture and capacity for change will be emphasized, including the importance of assessing and addressing change readiness.

Learning Objectives:
1. Discuss general concepts and best practices of organizational change in public health.
2. Examine the importance of addressing readiness when pursuing organizational change.
3. Describe two examples of local organizational change – youth violence prevention through school connectedness and youth suicide prevention.

Trainer – Jeanelle Sugimoto Matsuda, PhD. – Assistant Professor with University of Hawaii at Department of Psychiatry and Office of Public Health Studies.

We’re in the community!

Every penny you contribute stays right here in Hawai‘i.

The tobacco industry spends more than $25 million each year in Hawai‘i marketing their products to kids while sugary drink manufacturers pay fitness bloggers and researchers to promote diets that include soda. These industries care about one thing and one thing only: profit. That’s where we come in. We, and our coalitions, work every day to stop them in their tracks. We shine a light on their bad acts and we fight for policies that promote health for all Hawai’i residents and visitors. Your gift allows us to do more… and it is tax-deductible!

Are you a like-minded non-profit in need of help?

We know that there can be serious obstacles to get a cause, campaign or program off the ground. At HIPHI, we have years of experience and can help in a number of ways, from fiscal sponsorship and management to meeting and conference planning. Contact us to find out more.
