Learning of health management in interdisciplinary team in Lithuania

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article aims to present a case study how training in interdisciplinary teams has been used for training in health care management and to evaluate training results. First the article describes the program outline and organization using the method of comparative analysis, and the second uses quantitative and qualitative assessment of the opinions of the program's participants. A comprehensive management training initiative in Lithuania, together with international partners such as Project HOPE'S Executive Health Care Management Program, offers a highly leveraged evidence-based strategy to improve patient care from a total quality perspective. The opinion of participants is favorable towards the program. Projects selected by participants have the potential to improve the organizational systems in which care is delivered, setting the stage for a broad base of improvement in clinical processes. The partnering strategy used to administer the program and the networking that occurs from bringing together managers from diverse organizations promotes the emergence of new ideas and opportunities for sharing and leveraging existing resources. The new countries of the EU can use the experience gained in this course on the health care management program in Lithuania for the improvement of existing programs.
