Professionalism Oxford dictionary defines Professionalism as “the high standard that you expect from a person who is well trained in a particular job”. Key words “well trained in a particular job”
Professionalism A precious statement by Prophet Mohammad (PBUH): When trust has been wasted, you can expect destruction. A sahabat seeks clarification: “how can it be wasted?” Rasulullah (SWT) replied: “when a position is handed over to those who are not in their field, you can expect destruction”.
Professionalism Professionalism in Hospital Management It is ultimately patient focused. -Good outcome for patient care -Good practice for the doctors -Hospital sustainability for growth -Incentive for hospital owners Require strong managerial traits. -Ability to do right things not just doing things right. -Ultimate patient care is delivered -Continuous improvement of knowledge and skill -Guiding, discussion, teaching, learning instead of just giving instructions.
Professionalism All these are accomplished when there is health leadership. The key purposes of leadership are to provide direction, gain commitment, facilitate change and achieve results through the efficient, creative and responsible deployment of people and other resources.
Professionalism Leadership is nothing except: 1- Creating a Vision 2- Motivating employees towards the achievement of that Vision
Professionalism All these are accomplished when there is an attractive vision and well defined mission.
Professionalism Daydream about your Vision Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."
