Functional Results-Oriented Healthcare Leadership: A Novel Leadership Model
Salem Said Al-Touby
Oman Medical Journal , 2012,
Abstract: This article modifies the traditional functional leadership model to accommodate contemporary needs in healthcare leadership based on two findings. First, the article argues that it is important that the ideal healthcare leadership emphasizes the outcomes of the patient care more than processes and structures used to deliver such care; and secondly, that the leadership must strive to attain effectiveness of their care provision and not merely targeting the attractive option of efficient operations. Based on these premises, the paper reviews the traditional Functional Leadership Model and the three elements that define the type of leadership an organization has namely, the tasks, the individuals, and the team. The article argues that concentrating on any one of these elements is not ideal and proposes adding a new element to the model to construct a novel Functional Result-Oriented healthcare leadership model. The recommended Functional-Results Oriented leadership model embosses the results element on top of the other three elements so that every effort on healthcare leadership is directed towards attaining excellent patient outcomes.
Perspectives on healthcare leader and leadership development

Journal of Healthcare Leadership , 2010, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/JHL.S8292
Abstract: spectives on healthcare leader and leadership development Perspectives (10266) Total Article Views Authors: Elaine S Scott Published Date July 2010 Volume 2010:2 Pages 83 - 90 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/JHL.S8292 Elaine S Scott College of Nursing, Graduate Nursing Science Department, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC USA Abstract: Healthcare delivery systems are complex entities that must merge the best of administrative and clinical practices into a new model of leadership. But, despite growing recognition that healthcare organizational leaders must partner with clinical leaders to address patient safety, evidence based practice, financial sustainability, and capacity, tensions between the groups remain. Healthcare is based in large, bureaucratic entities organized in administrative hierarchies with clinical or product line silos that thwart collaboration, limit inter-disciplinary engagement, and foster mistrust. Around the world healthcare accessibility, fragmentation and affordability issues challenge healthcare systems whether they are centralized, socialized systems or free market private and public enterprises. In response to these concerns, healthcare organizations are struggling to address the ‘how’ of integrating clinician competence in patient management with the financial imperatives of modern day delivery systems. To redesign healthcare services for effectiveness and efficiency and to improve patient safety and outcomes, organizations must redefine leadership using new paradigms that promote the development and diffusion of improvements and innovations. Current research evidence shows that there is a need for not just formal administrative leadership, but also a need to develop integrated leadership processes throughout healthcare delivery systems. Shared leadership concepts framed in the context of complexity leadership theory (CLT) provides a vehicle for rethinking old definitions of leadership and for mobilizing the collective energy of healthcare organizations.

Abstract: Effective educational leadership can make a difference in the resolution of complex issues that impact today’s demand-driven educational marketplace. The ongoing professional and skill development needs of human health resources may be best managed through distributed strategic leadership blended with servant leadership. Together these two approaches may offer the critical bridge for effective educational leadership for e-learning within the healthcare workplace.
The Improvement of Leadership Development in the Healthcare Sector: A Case Study in Japanese Hospitals  [PDF]
Neville Greening
Open Journal of Leadership (OJL) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojl.2019.82003
Abstract: The healthcare industry faces unique challenges that set it apart from other types of industries. Healthcare leaders and staff experience high environmental complexities that require a unique combination of leadership skills and knowledge. Leadership is increasingly emerging as a significant strategic business imperative for medical organizations, in their attempt to adapt to and anticipate dynamics to keep up with market trends (Wheelen, Hunger, Hoffman, & Bamford, 2017). As front-line healthcare providers, doctors, and nurses require essential leadership and managerial skills to carry out their duties efficiently. Harden & Laidlaw (2017) postulate that effective communication in the healthcare sector is an essential tool for providing all stakeholders with clarity and satisfaction, while ineffective communication can lead to patient dissatisfaction, confusion, anxiety, or illness. The contemplated research examines the above through an analysis of leadership development and performance management in the healthcare sector. The primary objective of this research is to address the core competencies that a healthcare leader should develop and to build a new model or framework for leadership development in the Japanese healthcare industry.
Leadership insights of the Chinese military classics: for physician leaders and healthcare administrators

Journal of Healthcare Leadership , 2010, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/JHL.S7866
Abstract: dership insights of the Chinese military classics: for physician leaders and healthcare administrators Commentary (3288) Total Article Views Authors: Robert W Enzenauer Published Date April 2010 Volume 2010:2 Pages 1 - 9 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/JHL.S7866 Robert W Enzenauer Dept of Ophthalmology, UC Health Science Center, Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute Aurora, Co, USA Abstract: Leadership requires an understanding of human nature. Many popular books have been written describing the leadership principles of Biblical figures, athletes, military commanders, and even fictional heroes. Many of the contemporary authors who describe the traits, attributes, and actions that typify successful leaders can find that virtually all of the current leadership philosophy was recognized thousands of years ago. Trite sayings from Chinese military classics often find their way into after-dinner fortune cookies in many American Chinese restaurants. However, the lessons from the Chinese military classics should not be under-estimated and certainly should not be trivialized. Leaders at all levels of healthcare management can learn timeless lessons, spanning three millennia, from the wisdom of ancient Chinese military writings.
Effective Governance, Female Educational Attainment, Leadership and Healthcare Outcomes  [PDF]
Tannista Banerjee, Paula Bobrowski, Barry Friedman
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2017.75082
Abstract: Positive healthcare outcomes are paramount for national competiveness, as a nation’s population is among its most valuable assets. This study examines the relationship between national political stability and control of corruption, female educational achievements and national health outcomes. Results show that increases in a nation’s political stability and control of corruption affect female educational achievement positively. We also found that improved female educational level is associated with their presence in top firm and parliament positions. Further analysis showed that greater female representation in parliament increases national health standards.

Inclusion Biogenesis and Reactivation of Persistent Chlamydia trachomatis Requires Host Cell Sphingolipid Biosynthesis  [PDF]
D. Kesley Robertson,Ling Gu,Regina K. Rowe,Wandy L. Beatty
PLOS Pathogens , 2009, DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1000664
Abstract: Chlamydiae are obligate intracellular pathogens that must coordinate the acquisition of host cell-derived biosynthetic constituents essential for bacterial survival. Purified chlamydiae contain several lipids that are typically found in eukaryotes, implying the translocation of host cell lipids to the chlamydial vacuole. Acquisition and incorporation of sphingomyelin occurs subsequent to transport from Golgi-derived exocytic vesicles, with possible intermediate transport through endosomal multivesicular bodies. Eukaryotic host cell-derived sphingomyelin is essential for intracellular growth of Chlamydia trachomatis, but the precise role of this lipid in development has not been delineated. The present study identifies specific phenotypic effects on inclusion membrane biogenesis and stability consequent to conditions of sphingomyelin deficiency. Culturing infected cells in the presence of inhibitors of serine palmitoyltransferase, the first enzyme in the biosynthetic pathway of host cell sphingomyelin, resulted in loss of inclusion membrane integrity with subsequent disruption in normal chlamydial inclusion development. Surprisingly, this was accompanied by premature redifferentiation to and release of infectious elementary bodies. Homotypic fusion of inclusions was also disrupted under conditions of sphingolipid deficiency. In addition, host cell sphingomyelin synthesis was essential for inclusion membrane stability and expansion that is vital to reactivation of persistent chlamydial infection. The present study implicates both the Golgi apparatus and multivesicular bodies as key sources of host-derived lipids, with multivesicular bodies being essential for normal inclusion development and reactivation of persistent C. trachomatis infection.
