Towards New Models of Leadership and Management in the Healthcare Sector
Author: Paola Adinolfi
This provocative appraisal unpacks commonly held beliefs about healthcare management and replaces them with practical strategies and realistic policy goals. Using Henry Mintzberg’s “Myths of Healthcare” as a springboard, it reveals management practices that undermine care delivery, explores their cultural and corporate origins, and details how they may be reversed through changes in management strategy, organization, scale, and style. Tackling conventional wisdom about decision-making, cost-effectiveness, service quality, and equity, contributors fine-tune concepts of mission and vision by promoting collaboration, engagement, and common sense. The book’s multidisciplinary panel of experts analyzes the most popular healthcare management “myths,” among them: · The healthcare system is failing. · The healthcare system can be fixed through social engineering. · Healthcare institutions can be fixed by bringing in the heroic leader. · The healthcare system can be fixed by treating it more as a business. · Healthcare is rightly left to the private sector, for the sake of efficiency. The Myths of Health Care speaks to a large, diverse audience: scholars of all levels interested in the research in health policy and management, graduate and under-graduate students attending courses in leadership and management of public sector organization, and practitioners in the field of health care.

This guide helps undergraduate medics and junior doctors, as well as experienced doctors taking on new managerial responsibilities, to become effective leaders and managers by introducing both management and clinical leadership theory and practice, and the challenges facing medical managers in today's NHS. Despite growing recognition of the importance of leadership and management to doctors in meeting their clinical responsibilities, training in medical schools and foundation years remains patchy. The book explores how management and leadership can enhance health professionals' individual and organisational effectiveness, job satisfaction, and careers. Scenarios draw from the authors' real-life tales, while accompanying exercises encourage readers to reflect on their own experience. Fully referenced, and digestible both in full and as a reference resource, this is vital reading for medical students, junior doctors, and those who teach and train them. It will also prove useful to experienced doctors taking on new managerial responsibilities. `Clinical leadership across the NHS may take many forms ranging from frontline leaders who provide excellent service through a spectrum of clinical innovators and academics, to those who provide leadership through their professional bodies or through managerial involvement at various levels in their employing institution. This admirable book is aimed at young clinicians and invites them, through a series of vignettes and issues coupled with practical theory, to enter the world of management. I hope that everyone who reads this book will accept that invitation, because it is only through effective service design, management and change that we can practise medicine in the way and in the environment that is best for both patients and clinicians.' Professor Sir Bruce Keogh NHS Medical Director
