Building on feedback from attendees at the 2017 Annual Conference and recent literature, this session will focus on mentorship for those working with PA/LTC teams and administration. Effective mentorship is critical to the success of all health care professionals, but especially those in leadership positions. Mentorship is a two-way street. Being an effective, thoughtful mentor is challenging, and so is being a proactive, engaged mentee. This session will offer brief didactics on mentorship. Interactive and facilitated roundtables will help attendees develop skills for establishing and sustaining meaningful mentoring relationships. The session will also offer attendees opportunities to build their professional network.
