Building bridges and walking the talk – Dr John Crimmins

A real leader and bridge builder will make their first step being to make sure your own backyard is in order before talking about how others backyards should look.

Listen to our BridgeBuilders healthcare collaboration podcast

Our guests give us their views on teamwork, trust, integrated care, quality care, leadership and what needs to happen to make Australian healthcare an even better connected place.

It takes courage and humility to work together – Eimear Muir-Cochrane, Professor of Nursing (Mental Health)

It is time for medical and nursing staff to confer on a shift by shift, day by day, week by week basis.

The Bridge Builder – Will Allen Dromgoole

An old man going a lone highway, Came at the evening, cold and gray, To a chasm, vast, and deep and wide, Through which was flowing a sullen tide.

Understand the silent majority and what they want from their leaders – Dr Janice Bell

Looking outwards and towards each other’s organisations, I’d like to think that - with trust - we could among the different entities develop a collective impact plan - not just competition, communication, cooperation, collaboration - true co-design recognising the strengths of each entity.

By harnessing the true power and wisdom of the collective, will we overcome the artificial barriers which hold us all back. We need to build purposeful partnerships, understanding that we will never truly integrate if we actually set out to dominate.
