Abstract:
Globalization of Health Care: Impact on Nursing Leadership
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Donahue, K.
P.I. Institution Name:KTD International, Inc.
The session will enhance leadership knowledge with cutting edge information about real world changes in health care policy and standards that affect nursing leaders and care delivery. Descriptions of the growing innovative use of standards and quality improvement tools in various countries will provide practical knowledge of how these standards and tools are being used to strengthen nurse leadership in the USA and abroad. A synopsis of the presentation follows. Knowledge of global health care markets includes concern about the quality of health care being delivered, how it is measured and its impact on nursing, as well as medical services. The globalization of business and communications alone will have a profound impact on cross border issues, especially health, a highly personal issue for each of us. Sweeping economic, political and social changes worldwide over the last ten years have prompted many countries to examine their respective health systems as a public good. There is widespread agreement that escalating health care costs are consuming increasing proportions of the gross domestic product. Key health care experts, and economists as well, note a general trend toward privatization of health delivery systems and a movement from regulatory approaches to quality and measurement oriented approaches for improving health care. These phenomena directly affect nursing and medical leadership and practice. This presentation will describe the evolution of health care standards and their internationally, specifically focusing on their impact on nursing leadership, education and practice. A brief comparison will be made of the effects of health care quality policy on nursing leadership issues in other countries with the effects of US health care quality policy on nursing leadership issues in the USA. The exercise will present attendees and Sigma Theta Tau International with an opportunity to identify new nursing leadership challenges in the global context.
