expanded emphasis on leadership
Everyone, Everywhere, All the Time
Leadership is not a title or position.
It is a constellation of behaviors that can, and must, be learned and mastered by all members of the neonatal team to optimize care for neonates and their families.
Members of the neonatal team can lead more effectively in their local hospitals, in state and national bodies such as the AAP Section on Perinatal Pediatrics and the AAP, and in their local communities. These skills are not typically a point of emphasis during training or at medical conferences.
A major goal of this workship will be to provide a variety of opportunities for attendees to enhance their leadership skills, thereby assuring that we continue a strong tradition of leadership in our profession.
