Recently, increasing attention has been given to behavioural and relational aspects of the people who both define and shape health systems, placing them at the core. A growing refrain includes the assertion that important decisions determining health system performance, including agenda setting, policy formulation and policy implementation, are made by people. Within this actor-oriented approach, good leadership has been identified as a key contributing factor in health systems strengthening. However, leadership remains ill-defined and under-researched, especially in resource-limited settings, and understanding the links between leadership and health outcomes remains a challenge...

M Armstrong, P Ward
The following two pieces are published here to help highlight the parlous state of affairs between the British Dental Association ([BDA] the dental profession) and its regulator, the General Dental Council (GDC). The first piece by Mick Armstrong details the background to one of the letters he sent to Mr William Moyes, Chair of the GDC and provides a link to rest of the lengthy correspondence. The second piece by BDA Chief Executive Peter Ward questions how autonomous the GDC can actually be under the law and asks whether such a body is in fact acting without the law...

BACKGROUND: Hospitals must make a profit to ensure their continued existence. The observed rises in case numbers and case-mix indices lead us to suspect that the admission, treatment, and discharge of patients are now being influenced not just by purely medical factors, but also by economic considerations with a view toward making a profit-i.e., that decision-making has become partially commercialized. In this study, we investigated whether doctors and hospital chief executive officers (CEOs) share this perception of their professional environment...

The neuroendocrine brain or hypothalamus has emerged as one of the most highly sexually dimorphic brain regions in mammals, and specifically in rodents. It is not surprising that hypothalamic nuclei play a pivotal role in controlling sex-dependent physiology. This brain region functions as a chief executive officer or master regulator of homeostatic physiological systems to integrate both external and internal signals. In this review, we describe sex differences in energy homeostasis that arise in one area of the hypothalamus, the ventrolateral subregion of the ventromedial hypothalamus (VMHvl) with a focus on how male and female neurons function in metabolic and behavioral aspects...

BACKGROUND: A large number of maternal and neonatal deaths occur during birth and 48 h after birth. The benefits of postnatal care to the mother and newborn cannot be overemphasized as this is another opportunity where complications that might arise from pregnancy and childbirth can be treated, as well as the time to provide important information on maternal and newborn care after delivery. This study aimed to determine the information needs of mother-baby pairs in the first 6 weeks after birth...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the extent to which physician-to-system ownership transitions are associated with declines in practice-reported patient responsiveness (PRPR). DATA SOURCES: A longitudinal cohort of practices (n = 897) from the National Survey of Large Physician Organizations/National Survey of Small- and Medium-Sized Physician Organizations (2006/08) and the National Survey of All-Size Physician Organizations (2012/13). STUDY DESIGN: Multivariable regression estimated the effect of ownership on changes in PRPR, controlling for practice size, specialty composition, other practice, and market characteristics...

BACKGROUND: In 2010, the Veterans Health Administration issued a Staffing Methodology (SM) Directive to provide a standardized, data-driven method for determining appropriate inpatient nurse staffing. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to describe experiences and factors related to SM implementation. METHODS: We administered a Web-based survey to chief nurse executives to obtain their implementation experiences. Structural, process, and outcome factors and barriers associated with self-reported implementation success were identified...

Objective To explore the impact of the organisational quality systems on quality of care in Victorian health services.Methods During 2015 a total of 55 focus groups were conducted with more than 350 managers, clinical staff and board members in eight Victorian health services to explore the effectiveness of health service quality systems. A review of the quality and safety goals and strategies outlined in the strategic and operating plans of the participating health services was also undertaken.Results This paper focuses on the data related to the leadership role of health service boards in ensuring safe, high-quality care...

Facial Width-to-Height Ratio (fWHR) has been linked with dominant and aggressive behavior in human males. We show here that on portrait photographs published online, chief executive officers (CEOs) of companies listed in the Dow Jones stock market index and the Deutscher Aktienindex have a higher-than-normal fWHR, which also correlates positively with their company's donations to charitable causes and environmental awareness. Furthermore, we show that leaders of the world's most influential non-governmental organizations and even the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church, the popes, have higher fWHR compared to controls on public portraits, suggesting that the relationship between displayed fWHR and leadership is not limited to profit-seeking organizations...

PURPOSE: Person-environment fit asserts that incompatibility between an employee and aspects of their work environment is more likely to lead to occupational stress. The aim of this study was to investigate the impact varying levels of person-environment fit had on key criterion outcomes including, work engagement, work-related wellbeing and turnover intentions in a unique sample of managerial and administrative mining personnel.

OBJECTIVE: To examine chief nurse executives' perspectives on: (1) the provision of culturally and linguistically appropriate services in hospitals and (2) to identify barriers and facilitators associated with the implementation of culturally and linguistically appropriate services. BACKGROUND: Hospitals continue to face challenges providing care to diverse patients. The uptake of standards related to culturally and linguistically appropriate services into clinical practice is sluggish, despite potential benefits, including reducing health disparities, patient errors, readmissions and improving patient experiences...

In 1927 Michael McDonnell, a diasporic Irish Catholic, was appointed Mandatory Palestine's Chief Justice, being directed to institute firm British-style legal-judicial foundations for future self-governance. This entailed common, equal status for Arab and Jewish Palestinians, implicitly de-privileging the Jewish National Home. McDonnell was resisted in this by the British Mandate's Anglo-Jewish, pro-Zionist Attorney General, Norman Bentwich. McDonnell prevailed but only at the cost of being characterized lastingly as a pro-Arab, Catholic anti-Semite...

With the industry in flux as federal healthcare reform legislation debates continue, leaders are preparing for what the post-Affordable Care Act world might look like. Predictions include patients assuming more responsibility for healthcare costs and therefore behaving like consumers, including choosing providers based on perceived value. What actions should chief nurse executives take to ensure the nursing enterprise responds to rising consumerism in healthcare?

The 2016 Association of Pathology Chairs annual meeting featured a discussion group of Association of Pathology Chairs senior fellows (former chairs of academic departments of pathology who have remained active in Association of Pathology Chairs) that focused on how they decided to transition from the chair, how they prepared for such transition, and what they did after the transition. At the 2017 annual meeting, the senior fellows (encompassing 481 years of chair service) discussed lessons they learned from service as chair...

Marcea L Walter
A study was recently conducted to determine the perceptions of undergraduate health care management students regarding leadership characteristics that health care managers should possess to be successful. The results were then compared with a study that was conducted in 2012 of chief executive officers regarding their perceptions of the same leadership characteristics. The comparison of the studies was used to determine if the perceptions of the students and chief executive officers were similar or if the subjects considered different characteristics more important than others...
