Course 3: Implementing

Congratulations on the opening of your clinic! What a tremendous gift this clinic will be to the health and well-being of your community. All the work of the last few months has firmly laid the foundation for an organization that is prepared to stand the test of time. Everyone who has contributed to the growth of the clinic should take a moment to celebrate and appreciate what has been created.

Now that you have celebrated, it is time to get back to work.

The work of overseeing, organizing and running a clinic has begun. In addition to tightening the services that are provided at the clinic, the staff and Board of directors need to look ahead and prepare for sustaining the clinic. This includes looking at data collection and evaluation, quality assurance and improvement, and strategic planning.
