Managing Health and Leading Improvement: New Directions in Health Administration
This class of papers should emphasize innovations in management and leadership strategies applied within health settings, with a focus on identifying best practices, promising models for the future, and/or instructive failures that offer insight for improvement. Of particular interest are management and leadership strategies focused on expanding access, improving quality, promoting efficiency, and reducing disparities within public health and health care settings. Although these papers should focus on practice rather than research, simple procedural descriptions of one strategy in one setting without explicit consideration of the transportability and applicability of lessons learned are not of interest to this Section.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the session, participants will be able to: Analyze strengths and weaknesses of alternative strategies to improve health system performance Identify best practices in health management and leadership that promote access, quality, efficiency, and equity Evaluate conditions likely to affect the transferability of successful leadership and management strategies to other settings
