Leadership in Healthcare opens up the world of leadership studies to all healthcare professionals. Physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals spend thousands of hours studying the science and technology of healthcare, and years or even decades putting into practice recent findings in molecular biology, clinical diagnostics, and therapeutics. By contrast, the topic of leadership and the traits of effective leaders tend to receive remarkably little attention. Yet no less vital than an understanding of how to interpret diagnostic tests and design care plans is a grasp of healthcare's organizational side, including the operation of multidisciplinary care teams, academic departments, and hospitals. If patient care, education, research, and professional service are to thrive in years to come, we must do a better job of preparing healthcare professionals to lead effectively. Composed of insightful and thought-provoking essays on the key facets of leadership, this book is designed to meet the needs of several important constituencies, including educators of health professionals who wish to incorporate leadership into their educational programs; health professional organizations seeking to enhance their members' leadership effectiveness, and individual health professionals who wish to embrace leadership in their personal and professional lives. This book represents a vital resource for health professionals who wish to enhance the quality of leadership in health professions education, practice, and professional development. In addition to regularly caring for patients, Richard Gunderman, MD PhD MPH brings to this discussion a wealth of personal experience in professional and organizational leadership.

Healthcare leaders are facing major change in how healthcare is delivered as we move from fee-for-service payment models to pay for value. Physicians and hospitals are evolving from separate financial entities (with relationships varying from customers/workshops to competitors) to unified systems. Government policy maker, payers, and hordes of consultants advise hospitals to increase physician leadership in all parts of the system. However, few have proposed how this can be done when the gaps between hospitals and physicians are so wide. Physicians do not trust healthcare leaders, lack leadership and teamwork skills, and have little knowledge of how systems work. Some hospital leaders are working to overcome these gaps by setting up dyad leadership teams, consisting of a physician and an experienced manager/leader. The physician member of the team helps with the first gap; the nurse or other dyad partner is important to manage the other gaps. Until now, with the publication of Dyad Clinical Leadership, there has not been a source to help clinical dyad partners learn and understand how to work together in this emerging management model. Kathleen D. Sanford, DBA, RN, CENP, FACHE, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer at Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI), builds on CHI’s success with this unique playbook for the model.

It is a worthwhile resource for anyone interested in developing and working with healthcare teams." Score: 100, 5 Stars.--Doody's Medical Reviews Teamwork is an undisputed asset for reducing nursing and medical errors, improving quality of patient care, resolving workload issues, and avoiding burnout. This text helps to foster the leadership expertise and partnerships that will facilitate the delivery of the highest-quality care.

Case studies across a variety of organizations and environments and drawn from years of nursing team and leadership training, illuminate key points and provide readers with real life examples of the application of key concepts. These include such scenarios as developing a team to create, implement and evaluate a nurse residency program in a large tertiary hospital; creating a cross-agency public health team to plan and deploy rural H1N1 responses; founding a multi-campus team for the creation and implementation of a new BSN curriculum; and leadership in a partnership to support the legislative creation of a nursing workforce center. Learning objectives, tables, charts, models, and questions for thought in each chapter reinforce information in the text. Plentiful references provide opportunities for further study. Authored by a noted expert in education, team building, and policy making in nursing and health care, the book will be of value to emerging and seasoned leaders and graduate educators and students, including CNL, DNP, and NPs.

With Foreword written by Chris Van Gorder (President & CEO, Scripps Health). Healthcare has been undergoing significant changes in recent years with more expected well into the foreseeable future. Now, more than ever, we need leaders who are well-versed in all aspects of leadership. Unfortunately, the skills that made healthcare leaders successful in the past may not be enough to be successful in the future. Managing change requires a very special set of skills. Project management, lean six sigma and other change processes all identify leadership as a key critical success factor. In fact, a recent study by the Healthcare Center for Excellence revealed that lack of leadership was the greatest challenge to implementing healthcare analytics. More alarming was the fact that those in leadership positions did not recognize their role in the change management process. Added to this is the confusing advice on what is needed to be a good leader, when, in actuality, all that is needed is for the leader to be them self. Leadership is a process that must be prescribed and practiced every day. It is the same way professional athletes worldwide have followed their prescribed training regimen to improve their already exceptional abilities. "Prescribing Leadership in Healthcare" is based on the proprietary 5-step Professional Leadership Process which creates a personalized leadership development program built on an individual's innate qualities and strengths. It is designed as a continually improving process to help leaders at any level of the organization develop and adapt a personalized leadership vision and philosophy for utilization in their daily leadership routine. The program creates better leaders by incorporating the most often overlooked steps that research indicates are essential to better leadership development. Additionally, the book includes the leadership perspectives from interviews with top healthcare executives such as Dr. Toby Cosgrove (President & CEO, Cleveland Clinic), Dr. Laura Forese (Executive VP & COO, New York-Presbyterian), Dr. Michael Hunt (President & CEO, St. Vincent's Health Partners), Nancy Schlichting (Retired CEO, Henry Ford Health Systems) and others. REVIEW HIGHLIGHTS: "The lessons and practices [in the book] will make all of us better leaders and most importantly, will directly benefit those patients and families we serve." -- David Feinberg, President & CEO, Geisinger Health "This is one of the best and most powerful leadership books I have read. I believe he has found an elixir for making all of us better leaders." -- Jim Mattes, President & CEO, Grande Ronde Hospital "I highly recommend reading and following [Bryan's] leadership book. He is a remarkable person. The world needs more people like Bryan Bennett." -- Scott Becker, Publisher, Becker's Hospital Review "Prescribing Leadership in Healthcare is a book readers will want to come back to again and again." -- Tom Sullivan, Editor-in-Chief, Healthcare IT News

The rapid changes in health care including novel technologies as well as the changing economic, political, and social landscapes are all forcing physicians as well as most types of health care practitioners to re-think their role in leadership. This is particularly true in the US in recent years, but the same issues are widely prevalent affecting health care workers around the globe. Developing capable medical leaders who can navigate these challenges will be essential. Physicians and other health care practitioners usually receive little or no leadership training in the course of their education. At the next steps in their training: internship, residency and fellowship, gaining clinical acumen takes precedence over developing other skills that are at the core of leadership training. Leadership Lessons for Health Care Providers will allow all types of health professionals to gain a better understanding of what leadership is, how to develop their skills while still early in their careers, how to understand and handle common leadership conundrums and chart a path towards increasing their leadership capabilities as they reach mid-career and beyond. This book will provide a great start for those who are interested in learning more about leadership and includes recommendations for next steps at all stages in leadership work. Discusses and offers practical advice on a number of leadership development topics including levels of leadership, different styles and techniques, dealing with conflict, making hard decisions, and setting priorities Includes valuable insight from leaders and specialists in the health care field Directs readers to additional leadership resources as next steps

Praise for Transforming Health Care Leadership "The authors of this book provide the necessary tools for health care leaders to build a learning organization that can make the Triple Aim a reality—better patient care, at lower per-capita cost, while learning to improve population health." —Donald M. Berwick, MD, MPP, FRCP, president emeritus and senior fellow, Institute for Healthcare Improvement; former administrator, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services "This book is a must for every nurse leader's library and should be a resource and tool in every graduate nursing program, particularly those who are preparing doctoral students focused on systems leadership. It is full of experiential learning, and brings leadership to life." —Alexia Green, RN, PhD, FAAN, professor and dean emeriti, Anita Thigpen Perry School of Nursing, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center "At a time when bold changes are necessary in the delivery of health services to improve outcomes and lower costs, the authors provide both compelling reasons for change and specific case studies of how it can be done. This is an important resource for leaders at every level in every part of the health sector today. It should be required reading for all those who want to improve the performance of their part of our medical enterprise." —John Rother, president and CEO, National Coalition on Health Care "Transforming Health Care Leadership is a well-constructed guide to transforming health care by creating transformational leadership. Anyone serious about improving health care—who has hope that we can actually succeed at making things better for our patients and communities while practicing good financial stewardship—needs to read this book." —Tony Joseph, MD, founder, The Healthcare Accreditation Colloquium

"Hartley and Benington's Leadership for healthcare offers a fresh and compelling approach to understanding leadership as part of a wider frame of organisational issues. Their six-part leadership framework provides a useful means to draw down key lessons from the wider leadership literature into the healthcare setting."-John Storey, Professor of Management, The Open University Business School "Never before has leadership been such an important lever for reform in health and healthcare. This important work provides a clear framework to understand healthcare leadership. It is also sensibly grounded in the complex adaptive system of delivering health and healthcare. This work is a refreshing departure from many other simplistic approaches which see leadership merely as a response to context rather than a complex dynamic process."-Dame Yve Buckland, Chair, NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement. Writing, advice and training on leadership is growing at a vigorous rate with various frameworks now competing for attention. Having a clear sense of which leadership ideas and practices are rooted in sound theory and convincing evidence, and which are more speculative, is vital for healthcare leaders. This book provides a coherent set of six lenses through which to scrutinise the leadership literature relevant to healthcare – leadership concepts, characteristics, contexts, challenges, capabilities and consequences. It offers a view of leadership beyond the traditional focus on the individual, and argues instead that leadership has to be understood and developed as a complex set of practices by many people within specific organisational and inter-organisational contexts and cultures. This framework is particularly valuable in the highly dynamic and changing context of the public and voluntary sectors generally, and of the NHS and the field of healthcare specifically. Leadership for healthcare will be useful not only to those who have a formal or informal leadership position in a healthcare organisation, but also to those in government, education, housing, leisure services, the police, fire services and the voluntary sector.
