As improving clinical quality and the patient experience rises to the top of many national (and private) health systemsâ€™ agendas, the demand for clinician leadership rises as well. Yet, clinicians report a stunning lack of involvement in these health service reform efforts to date. Leaders must learn and deploy new strategies to engage these critical providers if real change is to occur. This will require shattering long-held beliefs among clinicians that their input is not welcome by providing them the support and tools to make critical decisions about care models, resource allocation, even staffing.The Clinicians at the Helm conference in London will challenge assumptions about what drives engagement and supply tactics for enlisting clinicians in the massive reform effort ahead.
