SYNC—An Interprofessional Leadership Program

The Virginia Action Coalition (through its parent organization, the Virginia Nurses Foundation) has partnered with the Medical Society of Virginia and the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association to develop and launch SYNC, a new learning institute designed to teach healthcare teams strategies to better serve their communities, lead their colleagues and improve as effective leaders. The program, SYNC-Transforming Healthcare Leadership, engages emerging leaders in collaborative leadership development.

The program’s interprofessional approach engages teams of up to five nurses, physicians, pharmacists, social workers, and other healthcare professionals to help them better meet the needs of patients and communities by developing collaborative teamwork and leadership capabilities among participants. Each team must included at least one registered nurse.

The first SYNC cohort concluded in March 2016. The second cohort launches in fall/winter 2016. See press coverage.
