    « HOSPITAL MANAGEMENT IN TIMES OF CRISIS: Constraints, Challenges and Opportunities »

    Welcome from Mr Gerry O’Dwyer, Vice President of the European Association of Hospital Managers, President of the Scientific Subcommittee EAHM, Regional Director of Operations, Dublin Mid Leinster, Ireland :

    gerryOdwyer[1]“On behalf of the EAHM Scientific committee I welcome the opportunity that this congress presents for us all to broaden our knowledge base and share learning opportunities. During times of crisis it is essential that hospital managers adopt a strategic management approach not only to minimise disruptions to day-to-day operations and ensure sustainability but also to embrace new ways of working. Integrated management with clinicians as partners, joint ventures, strong financial management and effective communications are all key factors for success and the first congress session «Strategic guidelines in crisis» will present new ideas and ways of working.”
