Leadership and Management Skills
(+an ECMO presentation from Hopkins providers)

In 2023, KEYPOCC is going to build on leadership skills for our June meeting this year. We have a new goal to continue to offer a management and leadership skills meeting/content to our annual schedule. After our fall meeting 2022 success, it is apparent that we are all appreciative of these soft skills.

For June, specifically, we have picked a speaker, MaryBeth Hyland of SparkVision. MaryBeth offers a Mindful Leadership Workshop that “creates opportunities for team members to increase their emotional intelligence, self-awareness, and power skills so that they can take care of themselves and their people in the face of adversity or stress.".

We will also have a talk on 'The Importance of POCT for Patients with Extracorporeal and Paracorporeal Support in Cardiac Surgery' presented Isaac Chinnappan, MS, CCP, LCP, CPBMT, CPBMS, CES-A, FPP, FAACP.
