Maureen Browne looks at the results of the first ever sector-wide survey of employees of the health service and how they feel about their jobs, training, motivation, enthusiasm and the standard of care provided by the health services.
If we wanted it, Ireland could probably afford a system of Universal Healthcare but we would need to develop a consensus on what we should include in the package and what would not be covered, Prof. Charles Normand, Edward Kennedy Professor of Health Policy and Management at Trinity College, Dublin, told the HMI Dublin Mid Leinster Forum held in the Dublin Dental Hospital. Maureen Browne reports.
We needed to change the emphasis on hospitals in the health service debate and see very clearly the effects of demographics and social care challenges on the hospitals, Mr. Liam Woods, HSE National Director of Acute Hospitals, Hospitals, told a HMI South Seminar in Cork University Hospital. Maureen Browne reports.
Next year the HSE was looking at taking hospitals off the block grants and creating a new model of care, which over time should result in better patient care and better outcomes, Ms. Maureen Cronin, HSE Assistant Chief Finance Officer and Head of the HSE Healthcare Pricing Office told a HMI Forum in Cork last Friday. Maureen Browne reports.
The former Quality and Patient Safety Directorate has now evolved into two distinct divisions, to give it an enhanced role, writes Dr. Philip Crowley, National Director, HSE Quality Improvement Division.
The HMI is the professional body for healthcare managers across all sectors of the health services in Ireland. Its overall aim is the development of standards of management competence and practice. We inform, educate and involve members and stakeholders in professional development and networking activities.
