The second 2019 issue of the World Hospitals and Health Services (WHHS) has been published on the IHF website.
The IHF has been working with its members to support of professionalization in the field of healthcare management, notably with the adoption of the global competency directory for healthcare leadership and management in 2015. Since 2015, significant progress has been made in defining and requiring a competency-based approach in both graduate education and continuous professional development. The articles in this issue of the World Hospitals and Health Services (WHHS) Journal of the IHF showcase recent trends in competencies in health care management training and accreditation programs.
The full version of the journal is accessible and downloadable for all IHF members. Log in or sign up for a new account to read and download the publication.
