Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Discussion 2

The Health Professional as Manager


   Select either Option A or Option B and indicate in your post which option you   have selected.

Option A:  Imagine your colleague and friend, Jane Smith, has   recently been promoted to department manager for your facility.  You   have worked side-by-side with Jane for the past ten years and can speak to   her excellent skills as a health professional.  However, Jane has no   prior management experience and  many of your co-workers are fearful   that she does not possess the necessary leadership skills to effectively lead   the team.  You feel conflicted because you agree with your colleagues   but you also have faith that Jane will do her best.  Considering Jane’s   situation, describe the dual role of the health professional as   manager.  What challenges do managers face when they make the leap from   health care professional to manager?  What are some of the common   complaints to indicate the presence of ill-fitting management?

Option B: Given the effort and creativity that you have put into your   Senior Projects for this course, use this discussion board as a forum to   share your topic with your classmates.  Provide a comprehensive   description of the topic you chose, discuss your reason(s) for choosing the   topic, and present some of the key information that you learned throughout   the research process.  For example, what did you learn about the role of   management in influencing health care decisions?  How do you think the   future of healthcare will be impacted by your topic?  Are there any   current events and/or media stories that relate to your topic?

Guided Response for Option A and Option B: Review several of your   classmates’ posts. Provide a substantive response to at least two of your   peers.  Do you agree or disagree with their opinions?  Would you   offer any other insight?  Discuss any personal and/or professional   experiences with ineffective managers.  What issues were caused?    What was done to rectify these issues?
