PURPOSE: The purpose of the study is to determine whether one leader set-up is better than the others according to interdisciplinary cooperation and leader legitimacy. DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/APPROACH: The study is a qualitative study based on semi-structured interviews at three Danish hospitals. FINDINGS: The study found that the leadership set-up did not have any clear influence on interdisciplinary cooperation, as all wards had a high degree of interdisciplinary cooperation independent of which leadership set-up they had...

The transition from volume- to value-based care calls for closer working relationships between physician groups and health systems. Healthcare executives are in the position of determining when and how physician groups are integrated into healthcare systems. Leveraging the theory of migration, we aim to describe where physician-system integration is headed and offer recommendations on how executives can respond to physician migration to and from integration. We conducted 25 semistructured interviews with CEOs, chief medical officers, chief financial officers, and physician group chief executives from eight of Washington State's largest integrated delivery systems...

The National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements' (NCRP) congressional charter aligns with our vision for the future: to improve radiation protection for the public and workers. This vision is embodied within NCRP's ongoing initiatives: preparedness for nuclear terrorism, increasing the number of radiation professionals critically needed for the nation, providing new guidance for comprehensive radiation protection in the United States, addressing the protection issues surrounding the ever-increasing use of ionizing radiation in medicine (the focus of this year's annual meeting), assessing radiation doses to aircrew related to higher altitude and longer flights, providing guidance on emerging radiation issues such as the radioactive waste from hydraulic fracturing, focusing on difficult issues such as high-level waste management, and providing better estimates of radiation risks at low doses within the framework of the Million Person Study of Low-Dose Radiation Health Effects...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Against the background of increasing healthcare costs and diminishing budgets, this review aims to present clinicians with ethically viable options to overcome budgetary restraints when seeking to introduce novel products. RECENT FINDINGS: Healthcare administrators and primary healthcare providers are not unlikely to have different opinions when discussing the introduction of novel products. However, rather than taking a 'no' for an answer, doctors may be able to argue for a change - even if this may seem to come at a higher cost...

The traditional role of the chief nursing officer (CNO) is expanding to include new clinical areas and patient populations. Chief nursing officers find themselves challenged to balance both system and site priorities, compounded with the expectation to lead their organization during a merger, acquisition, or hospital closure and the changes in healthcare reimbursement. Chief nursing officers must anticipate emerging issues and be prepared to manage those issues. They are at high risk politically when a new chief executive officer is named and when hospitals are having financial concerns...

The position of chief of a division of nephrology in an academic medical center is a hands-on job, offering the opportunity to influence the future of the field through the creation of unique clinical, research, and education programs. Today, most academic centers face significant financial challenges, thus the division chief must develop a variety of skills to accomplish his or her goals. Interactions and relationships with the leadership of the academic center, including the hospital executives, can facilitate or impede progress on proposed projects; therefore, aligning the goals of the division with the goals of leadership is an imperative...

The liver executes versatile functions and is the chief organ for metabolism of toxicants/xenobiotics. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common primary liver malignancy and the third foremost cause of cancer death worldwide. Oxidative stress is a key factor related with the development and progression of HCC. Nuclear factor erythroid 2 [NF-E2]-related factor 2 (Nrf2) is a cytosolic transcription factor, which regulates redox homeostasis by activating the expression of an array of antioxidant response element-dependent genes...

INTRODUCTION: In the Iranian Accreditation System, leadership and management standards have been almost ignored and not paid enough and necessary attention to the structural components and the infrastructures standards in management and leadership sections. Governing body, medical staff, chief executive officer (CEO), and nursing management standards are inadequate and lack accountability. These standards could lead to reform and finally provide the context for accomplishment of an appropriate accreditation program...

BACKGROUND: Bridging the 'gap' between research evidence and the complexities of policy and practice is central to health improvement. The Translational Research Grants Scheme (TRGS) in New South Wales (NSW), Australia, is a funding scheme aimed at reducing the time between research generation and translation to policy and practice. The TRGS is also an important part of NSW Health's efforts to harness and strengthen research capacity to improve health service delivery. METHODS: A document review and interviews (n = 12) with key stakeholders were undertaken following the first round of TRGS funding in November 2016...
