Medical Leadership (based on papers from World Federation of Medical Managers Conference May 15)
This second e-book dedicated to medical leadership highlights a strong movement, world-wide, to explore, investigate, and improve the role of the medical profession in shaping health reform-- and what needs to be done in order to prepare members of the profession for an enhanced role in that regard.
There is a growing expectation that doctors will become involved in improvement, reform, or innovation of health service delivery. Government efforts to reform health care ultimately creates expectations that health regions, hospitals, primary care offices, and all the supporting casts, will change aspects of what they are doing to accommodate those 'patient-centred' policy shifts. To do so means that all doctors, whether in clinical roles or administrative ones, will be affected.
Many authors from the very countries represented by the articles in this ebook, have presented compelling arguments, accompanied by research, to validate the importance of engaging physicians in health reform.
Most suggest that for physicians to become more actively involved in organizational decision making, they must develop leadership skills. These skills position the physician to be most effective at ensuring good medical practice is imbued in service delivery changes. Or, for that matter, in the design of new capital projects dedicated to improved patient care.
The articles in this e-book highlight key efforts that are being made to grow and develop leadership within the medical community.
