PT 864 Healthcare and Leadership (2)
Leaders in the healthcare industry must have an understanding of issues currently facing our healthcare system today combined with a drive to achieve the best in themselves, their employees, and their organization in order to survive. In this course, we will examine the expected changes and concerns/potential issues in our healthcare system resulting from the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. We will study the financing of our healthcare system, access and socioeconomic issues, and review current models of healthcare and universal health care programs utilized in other countries today. Knowledge of these issues provides leaders with a foundation from which to cultivate teamwork, competency, motivation and improved performance in an organization. In addition, self awareness of leadership qualities and style will be examined.
