This session will cover how the Veterans Health Administration took an in-depth, integrated approach to providing risk management education. Risk University goes beyond “how-to” and emphasizes the “why” of effective risk management. VHA risk professionals will discuss how the course was developed, the unique cohort approach to the course and the heavy emphasis on culture change. A key feature of Risk University is that each cohort consists of two tracks: extensive education in risk fundamentals for risk professionals and risk owners, and a management track offering high-level risk management education focusing on governance and oversight. The panelists will share how Risk University supports VHA efforts at implementing Integrated Risk Management and how it supports VHA’s response to the Government Accountability Office’s findings on the need for greater accountability and oversight. Panelists will also discuss how Risk University supports VHA’s High Reliability Organization objectives.
