My name is Debra Barrath. I have 30+ years of experience in health systems in the USA, Canada and South Africa as a nurse, strategy consultant, policy advisor and senior leader in healthcare, and executive coach.
I work with leaders of health systems and community organizations to improve the delivery of health care.
My clients have a vision for the future of health care. They are driven to constantly improve health service delivery and how healthcare professionals and staff relate to patients, families and communities. They are passionate about transforming their organizations by creating innovative health programs and services and ensuring high quality service delivery for patients, staff, and community members.
Communication and connection are important to me! I connect with people through coaching, group facilitation, and planning processes so that I understand their priorities and needs, and can work with them to develop relevant action plans that honor their values, address their priorities, and ensure their effectiveness.
I thrive on diversity. I am a global citizen and I bring international perspectives to my work. I have worked in the USA, Canada, South Africa and Kenya to develop programs and service delivery models, facilitate workshops and deliver presentations to improve quality of care, strengthen leaders and professional networks, and improve health workforce recruitment and retention.
