Implementing a Child Life Clinical Lead Program

This webinar will describe the development and implementation of a Clinical Lead Program in response to employee engagement scores, lack of professional development opportunities, and Child Life Director needing more leadership support.

By the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- speak to the body of evidence proving the positive effects of child life leadership development on engagement, costs, and clinical outcomes. 

- describe how the Clinical Lead positions were created, approved, and developed. 

- articulate how the implementation of the Clinical Lead positions positively affected outcomes for the child life staff and the organization. 

- glean insight from lessons learned, for the purposes of implementing such a program at other institutions.
