Exploring the Dynamics of Physician Engagement and Leadership for Health System Improvement: Prospects for Canadian Healthcare Systems – 4 April 2013

Exploring the Dynamics of Physician Engagement and Leadership for Health System Improvement: Prospects for Canadian Healthcare Systems – 4 April 2013

Prepared for the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health  Also published on the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement site.

Extract from the key messages:

“Physician leadership and physician engagement are essential elements of high-performing healthcare systems, contributing to higher scores on many quality indicators. Likewise, physician participation in hospital governance can improve quality and safety.
Although much of the literature on healthcare reforms suggests the importance of physician engagement and leadership, this literature is less explicit about the processes by which health systems and organizations can convert physicians’ autonomy, knowledge and power into resources for health system performance and improvement.
Physician leadership is important at the apex of the organization, but leadership occurs at all levels of the system. Increasing attention is being paid to high-performing clinical microsystems as well as new leadership modalities (e.g. dyads of physician and manager leaders and other forms of distributed leadership) and processes (e.g. physician “compacts”) that are fostering what some refer to as “organized professionalism.”
Physician engagement does not happen on its own. Organizations must use diverse strategies and initiatives to strengthen physician engagement and leadership, including (but not limited to):”

NHS Mutual: engaging staff and aligning incentives to achieve higher levels of performance – 1 July 2009

NHS Mutual: engaging staff and aligning incentives to achieve higher levels of performance
Author: Chris Ham & Jo Ellins
Publisher: Nuffield Trust    1 July 2009     ISBN-13: 978-1-905030-39-2
Full text of the report

“Increasing staff involvement and motivation is critical to NHS reform. Since 1998, the NHS has launched many policy initiatives aimed at improving staff engagement. Despite some success, there is evidence that exhortation and guidance alone will not bring widespread changes to practice, and that ways for staff to participate formally in the running of their organisations should be explored.

NHS Mutual: Engaging staff and aligning incentives to achieve higher levels of performance looks at the factors that drive staff engagement in the health service, and examines various models of employee ownership in use both within and outside the NHS. The authors conclude that there are at least five ways in which employee ownership can be fostered within the health service, and that the time is now right for the Government to support those willing to test different approaches.

NHS Mutual is important reading for health care leaders and policy-makers. It will also be of interest to researchers and academic institutions with an interest in this area, as well as all those concerned with improving staff motivation and reviewing the options for social ownership in the public sector.”
