Episode 8: “Laboratorians stepping up and Stepping Out!”
This episode of the “eLABorate Topics” podcast, “Laboratorians stepping up and Stepping Out!” Lona Small, MBA, PMP, CPBPM, MT (ASCP) discusses the importance of the Laboratory collaborating with other healthcare groups to solve healthcare issues affecting labs and healthcare as a whole.
Lona shared that she learnt that,
“When we contribute to positive outcomes, in a collaborative environment, we gain influence, demonstrate our value and make an impact!”
From Lona’s experiences in collaborating to implement hospital-wide and organizational wide improvements, Lona shared the 8 Must Do’s in order to have effective collaboration and demonstrate your value and impact.
- Grasp The Opportunity
- Involve relevant Stakeholders
- Agree on A Common Goal
- Select champions
- Communicate Changes
- Sustain Changes
- Demonstrate the value of Improvements or Changes
- Report Improvements and Changes
A next level impact would be Laboratorians collaborating among ourselves. This creates strong coalition and a stronger voice for advocacy and shining the light on the lab as we take our place as an important part of the whole.
