If we wish to improve the results of a system, what is needed to help health professionals learn about the redesign of that system? To create learning experiences that will attract good health professionals, a special blend of practical insight and critical thinking is required. To enjoy good standing in the academy, these leaders must be able to design, conduct, and disseminate knowledge-building activities subject to peer review.
