With the implementation of healthcare reform on the horizon, dietetic professionals and nutrition leaders will need to anticipate and prepare for potential changes. The status quo may no longer be appropriate or sufficient to meet new demands. Over the past decade the healthcare industry has continued to adjust to meet the changing demands. There have been many regulatory changes setout to improve patient safety and patient outcomes; as well as financial controls to support the economic climate. The healthcare industry of yesterday is gone, and we can only begin to anticipate the further changes ahead. Many of us are already experiencing the shift toward transparency, innovation, financial justification, and staff productivity as only a few of the current trends. As healthcare practitioners and nutrition leaders will we be able to keep up?

The title for the symposium is “Leadership in an Age of Reform: Are You Equipped to Thrive?” It will take a different skill set and resource utilization to assist dietetic professionals and nutrition leaders to stay on top of the expectations and succeed. The goals for the symposium are to: provide insights into the current and future healthcare trends, share successes and best practice guidelines, and motivate change toward innovation and process improvements.
