There is increasing disquiet among many health managers at what they say has been undue pressure on CEOs to sign service level agreements with the HSE within truncated timeframes. Maureen Browne reports.
Responsibility and accountability for national patient safety intelligence in Ireland should be assigned to an independent organisation in order to ensure effective national oversight of patient safety and also to inform policy development, according to HIQA. Maureen Browne reports.
The HSE is to create a National Leadership Academy comprising the best thought and practice based leaders from across the system to lead, influence and develop leadership standards practice and succession management, writes Maureen Browne.
There were outstanding leaders in the Irish health services and if clinicians, nurses and ambulance personnel were properly resourced and the money properly targeted, she firmly believed the HSE could be a leader in people services. Ms. Rosarii Mannion, HSE National Director HR, told a meeting of the HMI Dublin Mid Leinster Regional Meeting in the Dublin Dental Hospital. Maureen Browne reports.
In the immediate aftermath of the recent election, there appears to be widespread support for the suggestion that ‘a new way of doing politics’ ought to be explored. It will be interesting to see if anything comes of it, writes Denis Doherty.
Nowadays, the development of person centred care is the rationale for many improvement programmes. This is because, unlike other service industries, the services we deliver are often organized around the needs of the service rather than that of the patient or customer, writes Dr. Peter Lachman.
We are all familiar with indoor maps in airports, museums and shopping centres. They help us find a destination among the myriad of locations, we learn how to find places we need with the minimum of fuss or assistance. It is time for hospitals to provide similar maps for patients and staff to enable them to find locations easily and efficiently, writes Kerry Ryder.
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.
