Managing clinical professionals

Chapter

Abstract

  • Managing clinical professionals is a daunting task for any healthcare manager in the United States. The management of clinical professionals is a required healthcare administration competency made more complicated by contentious historical relationships, conflicting belief systems, competing values, employment trends, and policy influences. Historically, US physicians made clinical determinations (for example, diagnosis and treatment), commanded the resources to carry out the task (for example, prescribing) and directed how other caregivers’ work would be performed (for example, issued orders). This is no longer the case.
