The search for the characteristics or traits of effective leaders has been studied by the central leadership, which leads to the assumption that leadership is embedded in the characteristics of the individual. Note that there are similarities between listed quality traits that appear in multiple lists: desire to lead, physical
In fact, leadership is a "complex phenomenon that operates across multiple levels of analysis" (Dinh et al., 2014, p. 37), and as such, a leadership philosophy generated from one theoretical perspective would lack dimensional and methodical depth. Thus, this leadership philosophy is heavily influenced by transformational and diversity leadership theories. On the one hand, transformational leadership highly emphasizes on relationships and personal attributes, such as leader-follower dyads (Backman, Sjögren, Lindkvist, Lövheim, & Edvardsson, 2017). Accordingly, much of the transformational leadership research focuses on the personal attributes of effective charismatic leaders. On the other hand, diversity leadership brings light to the contextual influences of diversity and leadership in organizations where the leader is also perceived as a linguistic and/or visible
with issues associated with running a business, and it greatly lacks the required management competencies needed to effectively lead and restructure the current healthcare model. Because healthcare leadership must now model itself like a business, it forces you to identify leadership competency gaps and confront the leadership shift from healthcare-specific leaders to business leaders. IDENTIFYING HEALTHCARE LEADERSHIP COMPETENCIES Per the Center for Creating Leadership, clinical teams are proficient in adaptability, meeting objectives, and resourcefulness. They are straight-shooters, quick learners, and skilled at managing a diverse team. However, healthcare management teams and leaders fall short among several critical areas.
Healthcare setting-unlike business setting-is a more complicated system that consists of different professional teams and departments that usually don’t share the same objectives or planning strategies due to the diversity in the services provided. This
However, members of each unit often times do not possess good interpersonal skills or communicate effectively with other healthcare members in spite of its importance. Thus the following points will discuss the importance of both interpersonal skills and effective communication among healthcare professionals, including physiotherapists, in the management of
The facilities enforcing protocols and policies to secure that employees are meeting government regulations. Doctors, nursing staff and support staff I must use their best ethical and moral judge in most case to ensure patients are being retreated. Thus, sometimes causing conflict with health care administration because health care workers sometimes unknowingly break policies or protocol by putting patients first. As well as hospitals and clinics have so many departments that there can be conflict of interest with patient care that can cause inconsistency with patient care (Santilli, J. el al., 2015, Para
Self-verification is related to low self-monitoring because it matches the idea of wanting one’s public image to match their self-image (Lecture Ch. 3, p. 6). Using self-verification as a motive most likely indicates the use of cognitive or deliberate processes (Lecture Ch. 3, p. 6). Both extremes have positives and negatives.
Introduction A lot goes into making healthcare complete and available for all and in so doing needing a series of inter-connected web of activities and strategies all to promote, restore and maintain health of the individual and society at large. The WHO came up with 6 building blocks of the health system; health financing, health information, service delivery, human resources for health, governance and leadership, pharmaceuticals and technology to attempt to display the major issues at play in any health system. It has been criticized rightly for missing out the consumers as part of the building blocks(1) and in some parts of the world, this has shown repeated failure in the part of interventions to produce favourable results(2). I believe
This case is an exemplar of ACHE competency domain 1, Communication and Relationship Management(American Health Care Executives). As the CEO and the Chair of the Department of Psychiatry each had differing priorities and concerns for the best operational measures for their respective units, it was critical that they come together to understand the needs and desires that impacted both their own points of view as well as that of the other party. Clearly, as they were able to reach a compromise and continue working together for the benefit of Memorial Hospital and its patients, this objective was achieved(Ascencio and Mujkic). While the details of the discussions between the two parties are not clearly articulated in the case, the outcome of
Nevertheless, it should be mentioned that when a nurse is taking over a managerial role the overall processes of work and cooperation enter a different mode. For instance, in most of the cases, the position is appointed by the executive team of managers of the hospital or responsible physicians, and the power base arises from the job itself. The visions and the goals of the manager are mostly defined by the organization and innovation and creativity usually undergoes severe criticism and is not entirely encouraged. A nurse on the managerial role needs to maintain one’s status quo and is mostly obligated to balance on one’s position without provoking and supporting outside initiatives. Furthermore, a specialist in this position is required to
Selecting the system is a complex and a heavy resource demanding task a company can start. The terms EMR and EHR are similar and have been exchanged many times, but there are differences. The EMR system is specifically used to replace the old paper medical records and charts that have been used by doctors and hospitals. These systems can range from paper records and medical charts being digitally converted into advanced healthcare systems. An EHR is an integrated medical record system with the ability to transfer information from many sources like radiology images, immunizations, prescription orders, and laboratory results.
