Leading Practices Library

Welcome to the Leading Practices Library, a repository of award winning initiatives put forward annually by individuals, teams and organizations from across the country. Every year, we will grow the library in an effort to create a collection of knowledge to help stimulate transformative thought, make connections between health leaders, and inspire organizations to learn from, replicate and expand on the outstanding work being accomplished across the country.

Our award recipients are leading the way nationally on many fronts, from creating culturally diverse workplaces, to finding innovative ways to deliver care in remote communities, to building smart hospitals, and creating new models to facilitate caregiver respite, just to name a few. Recipients of these awards would be thrilled to share details about their award winning initiatives and to speak on a variety of subjects.

Below you'll find a high level overview of the various recipients, along with their location and area of expertise. To download the submission in full, click on the respective link.
