Full program now available online

The 2018 California Hospital Volunteer Leadership Conference, taking place Feb. 19-21 at the Hyatt Newport Beach, provides new ways health care organizations and hospital volunteer leaders can foster connections, share news, meet potential partners, access knowledge networks and build relationships with other organizations.

The conference serves as both a catalyst and clearinghouse for new volunteer approaches to meet the challenges presented by health care delivery system transformation. In addition to sharing stories about data-driven efforts and program improvements, the conference’s education sessions will highlight how volunteers impact lives and build relationships that support the patients, staff and communities they serve.

Learning experiences, activities and dialogue topics include advocacy, compliance, emergency services, fundraising, governance, health care delivery system redesign, marketing and social media, patient experience, retail operations, social determinants of health, technology, volunteer management and workforce development.
