Caring for Healthcare: LEADing Change in Workplace Psychological Health and Safety

Description: Regardless of profession or sector, protection and promotion of psychological health and wellness in the workplace are imperative. However, healthcare settings can be particularly challenging environments. Creating psychologically healthy workplaces not only benefit staff engagement, wellbeing and satisfaction, but also translates to safer and more effective patient care. A major factor—either enhancing or mitigating the creation of psychologically healthy workplaces—is the quality of its direct leadership. It takes a courageous leader to change workplace culture to value psychological health and safety.


In partnership with HealthCareCAN, the Mental Health Commission of Canada leads the By Health, For Health Collaborative. The Collaborative has a vision for healthcare workplaces to be leaders and role models in providing psychologically healthy and safe work environments for all Canadians. Join this webinar to hear from the member co-chairs, Sandy Coughlin and Matt Snyder, as they discuss Collaborative and the initiatives undertaken to achieve this vision.


Also hear from Dr. Graham Dickson as he discusses the parallels between the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace and the LEADS in a Caring Environment framework.


Guest Speakers:

  • Sandy Coughlin, Director, Occupational Health and Safety, Providence Health Care
  • Matthew Snyder, Chief Human Resource Officer, Peterborough Regional Health Centre
  • Dr. Graham Dickson, Principal, LEADS Change Inc.
