Free Event: Change Management and the Concepts of New Power
This free event for ACHS members, to be held on Thursday 22 July and will focus on learning how to survive in a rapidly changing world in all health sectors. Considering the COVID-19 pandemic the principle of achieving change at scale and pace will be explained.
