Essentials of Management for Healthcare Professionals

 Nursing  Comments Off on Essentials of Management for Healthcare Professionals
Mar 092018
 
 Medical care is an industry and private providers and hospitals are the major service providers. They operate on business principles. Hospitals are getting highly specialized and complex. The diagnostics and therapeutics are technology intensive. Private establishments have to compete with one another to remain in business. They strive to induct the best talent and latest technical know-how, resulting in ever-increasing costs to patients. Patients, who pay high charges, demand quality as a matter of right. To meet the challenge, hospitals are constrained to bring in professionalism in their systems and services. They appoint qualified professional managers to manage their clinics and hospitals with a view to sparing health professionals to focus on clinical care. Whether right or wrong, ‘management’ is often associated with authority and power. As a result, the medical professionals are reduced to secondary level in some organizations. To retain commanding positions in medical organizations, it has become necessary for the healthcare professionals to learn ‘management’, at least its basics.

On the other hand, non-medical managers while managing healthcare services do not get the required cooperation from the medical professionals, as the latter are often secretive and not willing to share medical knowledge. If medical knowledge is demystified, non-medical managers can perform many functions in healthcare organizations proficiently. Both medical and non-medical managers can complement each other in providing quality healthcare services.

The book aims to orient clinicians (including physicians and nurses) and other healthcare professionals on the essentials of business management and to familiarize them with management terms and jargon. They can learn to be effective managers besides being health professionals. Similarly, non- medical managers can get familiarized to nuances of clinical care and special managerial requirements of healthcare facilities. They all will be able to relate processes in healthcare settings with the concepts of business management. They can develop expertise on patient relationship management.

Genetics/Genomics Nursing, 2nd Edition

 Nursing  Comments Off on Genetics/Genomics Nursing, 2nd Edition
Mar 072018
 

Genetics/genomics nursing is specialized nursing practice and care that focuses on the actual and potential impact of genetic/genomic influences on health. Genetics/genomics nurses educate clients and families on genetic/genomic influences that might impact their health, and intervene with the goals of optimizing health, reducing health risks, treating disease, and promoting wellness. To do so, the research and evidence-based practice of genetics/genomics nursing includes interprofessional collegiality and collaboration with genetics/genomics professionals and other healthcare professionals to provide quality patient care. ANA and the International Society of Nurses in Genetics convened a workgroup of genetics/genomics nurse experts to update and expand the 2006 edition to accommodate ongoing and anticipated changes in their specialty and healthcare. With input from numerous nurses, they developed Genetics/Genomics Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition. It is a comprehensive delineation of the competent level of practice and professional performance common to and expected from genetics/genomics registered nurses in all practice levels and settings. The publication’s scope of practice addresses what is expected of all genetics/genomics nurses, specifying the who, what, where, when, why, and how of their practice. That detailed scope of practice discussion gives the context-the underlying assumptions, characteristics, environments and settings, education and training requirements, key issues and trends, and ethical and conceptual bases of genetics/genomics nursing-needed to understand and use the standards. Those 16 standards, which provide a framework for evaluating practice outcomes and goals, are those by which all genetics/genomics nurses are held accountable for their practice. The set of specific competencies accompanying each standard serves as evidence of minimal compliance with that standard.
