Message from the Coordinators

"At present the provision of health care is facing new and complex challenges of continuous improvement of the effectiveness, efficiency, quality and safety of care and call for new organisational solutions based on a shared management and teamwork. 

Synergies between the management and the clinical area must be enhanced in order to remedy the lack of strategic alignment of organisations and decision making.
It is not acceptable that the economic logic may replace the clinical judgment nor the medical criteria can be imposed, without anything else, to the managerial rationality.

The articulation of both reinforces the need to balance interventions, clinically relevant and strategically aligned with the needs of patients and safeguard the NHS. The management of the effectiveness and the improvement of efficiency, both organisational and systemic, are necessary and indispensable. Therefore it is required joint training and effective collaboration between managers and doctors.

It is under this new paradigm that it is justified, more than ever, for all managers and leaders in health care, as well as for all professionals who wish to acquire specific skills, the attendance of the course "Medicine for Managers".

The acquisition of a common language is intended, an aligned approach to clinical problems and consensual best practices that result in proper cost-effective relations, making the processes sustainable and with health gains for the users. "
