Northern Approaches

In many ways, Canada, the world’s second biggest country by area, is a global leader in the effective use of technology in its public health system. Almost all X-rays, MRIs, CTs and other imaging tests in its hospitals are now filmless, which equates to adding the equivalent of up to 500 radiologists and 11 million more exams annually.

These sessions will bring together healthcare providers, administrators and policy makers, as well as private companies and NGOs, to discuss the most significant challenges to positive health outcomes among citizens, including challenges faced by the healthcare system as a whole. Moreover, the Health Initiative plans on creating an Expert Panel in Global HealthCare Initiatives for mentorship opportunities.

Teaching

There is a need for management training tailored to physician, nurse and healthcare managers. The MDIIM Health Initiative will offer intensive short management workshops tailored to the specific needs of acute care facilities, public health and community-based care organizations.

Managing the myths of health care

Author: Henry Mintzberg

Abstract:

Myths impede the effective management of health care, for example that the system is failing (indeed, that is a system), and can be fixed by detached social engineering and heroic leadership, or treating it more like a business. This field needs to reframe its management, as distributed beyond the “top”; its strategy as venturing, not planning; its organizing as collaboration beyond control, and especially itself, as a system beyond its parts.
