Wirksam führen: Ein Leitfaden für Chef- und Oberärzte by Barbara Hogan,Werner Fleischer

By Barbara Hogan,Werner Fleischer

Von ärztlichen Leitungskräften in Kliniken und Krankenhäusern wird, neben exzellentem medizinischen Fachwissen, längst auch Führungskompetenz erwartet. Denn zunehmender Kostendruck und Fachärztemangel sind die zentralen Herausforderungen, denen sich viele Häuser stellen müssen. Um sie zu bewältigen, bedarf es Leitungskräften, die in der Lage sind, ihre Mitarbeiter wirksam zu führen. Doch noch immer werden Ärzte während ihrer medizinischen Ausbildung und in den ersten Berufsjahren kaum auf die Übernahme von Führungsverantwortung vorbereitet. In einer Leitungsposition sind sie dann mit Aufgaben konfrontiert, mit denen sie in dieser Komplexität nicht gerechnet haben.

Das Buch ist ein praxisorientierter Leitfaden, der ärztliche Leitungskräfte konkret dabei unterstützt, im Spannungsfeld der vielfältigen Anforderungen die Hoheit des Handelns zu behalten. Aufgrund der einzigartigen fachlichen Kombination des Autorenduos werden alle relevanten Aspekte aus dem Führungsalltag von Chef- und Oberärzten praxisnah und verständlich beleuchtet. Das Buch umfasst einen Grundlagen- und einen Praxisteil. Je nach Fragestellung liefert es detailliertes Grundlagenwissen oder schnelle Hilfestellung bei akuten Herausforderungen des Führungsalltags.
