Successful decision-making in public health and health care administration requires the ability and agility to balance public policy, institutional strategy, program objectives, resource allocation, inter-disciplinary planning and consensus building, and "turf" issues. This seminar will discuss studying the players, politics, processes, skills and strategies needed to be developed to better understand, monitor, and actively influence health care policy making at the state and federal levels, on behalf of provider organizations, consumers, and advocacy groups. Participants will learn to be better advocates with government and how to develop collective partnerships with communities.
The strategies presented will address the need for the individual to understand that in “Guerilla Policy-fare” the process is disorderly, and rarely sequential. It typically involves multiple disciplines trained in different problem solving approaches and is colored by political considerations which are usually not clearly articulated. Participants will begin to understand that the process of advocacy has competitive elements with other providers and frequently moves very quickly.
In this process leadership will face complex problems or predicaments of reconciling priorities that may not be complimentary. This seminar will challenge participants thinking regarding approaches to policy planning, decision making, and resource allocation, with goals that are clear but political support is not.
