Effective Crisis Leadership in Healthcare: Lessons Learned from a Pandemic
COVID-19 thrust the world into a state of crisis for which no one was adequately prepared, and the fact is that no industry was so hard-hit as healthcare. Although some providers were more equipped than others, without warning all physicians’ offices and hospitals were obligated to stay up and running through the deadly pandemic while delivering life-saving care and preventing wide-spread infection.
Effective Crisis Leadership in Healthcare conveys hard-learned tactics, strategies, and advice to enable healthcare leaders to increase their confidence and mental preparedness prior to the next big catastrophe. This book addresses industry-wide problems revealed by COVID-19 like inadequate crisis planning, lack of financial stability, and inexperience with communication and leadership.
