- Politics 2015-How to survive in the dog-eat-dog world of hospital politics
In this presentation, I will discuss my experience and knowledge about the political climate in hospitals today. Specifically, we will discuss the view of the world from the perspective of 5 departments, all of which out-power the biomedical department. All of these departments will overpower Biomed in a battle of shear strength and influence. I encourage all Biomeds based in hospitals to get to know the way these departments operate, and develop ways of dealing with them that accomplishes our goals, while not offending these powerful departments. The departments to be covered are Administration, Accounting, Human Resources, IT, and Materials Management. This presentation is very interactive and loaded with various “Top 10” lists to aid in your accomplishment of daily goals. Bring your own experiences, because user input is desired.
We feel this is a great followup to our last meeting where we discussed HTM's place in the healthcare landscape.
I look forward to seeing you all at the this meeting. Be looking for an meeting invite email coming soon.
