As a current or future healthcare administration leader, your health services organization may participate in or engage in a merger/acquisition. While the merger/acquisition process has several implications for the health services organization itself, physicians and other healthcare staff may present challenges when completing a merger or acquisition. As the healthcare administration leader, you may be required to help bring physicians and other healthcare staff “on board” to the merger or acquisition and may be required to execute certain strategies and policies to ensure a smooth transition in healthcare delivery.
Post an explanation of how healthcare administration leaders might address physician concerns when engaged in a merger or acquisition for health services organizations. Then, describe a strategy that you, as a current or future healthcare administration leader, might use to affect executive thinking for promoting a health services organization forward when challenged by physician leadership.
relationship between professional knowledge and professional competence and the development of the ‘reflective practitioner’. In medical education, much of the learning is necessarily experiential, there is a lot of ‘learning by doing’ as well as ‘learning by observation’(Kolb,1984). Training in operative surgery is an essential part in surgical teaching. The trainee has to progress from one level to another level by series of skills transfer. As described by W C Howell (1982) there are four phases of competences in learning model, each identified by different combinations of consciousness and competence, which every learner may pass through as they learn. These stages are A] Unconscious incompetence – this is the stage where they are not even aware that they do not have a particular competence. B] Conscious incompetence – this is when they know that they want to learn how to do something but they are incompetent at doing it. C] Conscious competence – this is when they can achieve this particular task but they are very conscious about everything they do. D] Unconscious competence – this is when they finally master it and they do not even think about what they have such as when they have learned to ride a bike very successfully. (Howell, 1982, p.29-33) Kolb (1984) was highly influential in describing how learning takes place and helping understanding of the learning process. His ‘learning cycle’ and Learning theories approaches the idea of learning as experiential (learning by doing). Kolb suggests that ideas are not fixed, but are formed and modified through the experiences>GET ANSWER
