EHMA Annual Conference "Evidence-Based Management: Better Decisions, Better Healthcare" - European Health Management Association
Breda, Amr?th Hotel Brabant, Heerbaan 4, Netherlands
The 2015 theme "Evidence-Based Management: better decision, better healthcare" Healthcare organisations and systems face complex challenges regarding the delivery of care. Researchers, policy makers, hospital managers and health care executives need to apply the best available evidence in managerial decision making. This is reflected in the concept of evidence-based management. Inspired by the use of evidence in the decision making of healthcare professionals, champions of evidence-based management assume that the systematic use of the best available evidence in managerial decision making will improve healthcare provision. However, several questions and challenges remain with regard to the conceptualisation, application and implications of evidence-based management in healthcare. - What is really meant by evidence? - Do managers, policy makers and leaders really make much use of evidence in their decision making? - How much should researchers be doing to get their research findings into practice? - Are some organisations better than others at using evidence or knowledge in decision making? - How well does the training and development of managers and leaders equip them to be good at using evidence in decision making? - How can researchers help managers and healthcare organisations to find, appraise and use evidence effectively? - How can leadership and management development programmes be improved?
