Published: 18 August 2022

Walk into any hospital and you’ll witness a complex, multi-level system of personnel in action, interacting with each other, with patients, and with high-tech equipment around the clock. Healthcare systems naturally face management challenges—the COVID-19 pandemic amplified those and introduced new ones. How can management insights gleaned from the pandemic help healthcare move forward into sustainable systems that prioritize the well-being of both practitioners and patients?

Read Delve’s newest article on the latest Desautels Faculty of Management research and first-hand practitioner experience in sustainable healthcare management—and hear about it in doctors’ and professors’ own words on Delve’s The “New Normal” podcast series with journalist Dave Kaufman. Delve into:

  • How a healthcare institution leader and her teams weathered the storm of the COVID-19 pandemic and were able to make longer-term changes that benefit practitioners and patients.
  • Why a chief surgeon is calling for better management of healthcare systems to support doctors and other healthcare practitioners in the face of mental distress and burnout.
  • How changes to technology in the operating room—such as the introduction of a surgical robot—affect everything about how surgeons and their teams function.
