Abstract

 

Objective: To discuss current challenges and future perspectives in order to initiate a debate on the introduction of leadership in Serbia's health care system. The ultimate goal of the review is to provide a foundation on which future standardized training and credentialing curriculum could be based on. Methods: The PubMed and Web of Science databases were searched in December 2017 and January 2018 for scientific papers written in English using the keywords: health systems, management, leadership, medical education. Discussion: Health care issues have been the subject of intense scientific discussions around the world for the past two decades. Most attention is drawn to the efforts of interested countries to find the most effective way of managing complex health care systems. There is evidence that management is important and that in successful management, the effects are correlated with management practices and promoted values. The situation where heads of health care teams of large clinical systems in Serbia are physicians, requires more attention to be paid to managerial and leadership skills. Conclusion: Clinical quality depends on interprofessional team work, therefore leadership and management skills are needed at all levels. The development of leadership competencies must be an integral part of the training and eductation of doctors in Serbia. There is currently a great need for a standardized curriculum to be developed and used for the use of training and credentialing current and future leadership.

Sažetak

 

Uvod/Cilj. Raspravom o trenutnim izazovima i budućim perspektivama inicirati debatu o uvođenju liderstva u zdravstveni sistem Srbije. Krajnji cilj rada je da pruži osnovu na kojoj bi mogao biti zasnovan budući standardizovan program i akreditovan kurikulum za obuku medicinskih radnika. Metode. Baze podataka na PubMed i Veb of Science su pretražene u decembru 2017. i januaru 2018. godine za naučne radove napisane na engleskom koristeći ključne reči: zdravstveni sistemi, menadžment, liderstvo, medicinsko obrazovanje. Rezultati. Pitanja koja se tiču pružanja zdravstvene zaštite predmet su intenzivnih naučnih rasprava širom sveta već dve decenije. Najveću pažnju okupiraju nastojanja zainteresovanih država da iznađu najefikasniji način rukovođenja složenim sistemima zdravstvene zaštite. Postoje dokazi da je upravljanje važno i da su kod uspešnog rukovođenja učinci u korelaciji sa praksama upravljanja i promovisanim vrednostima. Situacija da se na čelu timova zdravstvene zaštite značajnih kliničkih resursa u Srbiji nalaze lekari zahteva da se veća pažnja posveti menadžerskim i liderskim veštinama tokom studija medicine. Zaključak. Razvoj liderskih kompetencija mora biti sastavni deo obuke i učenja doktora u Srbiji. Potrebno je najpre izraditi i akreditovati program za edukaciju i obuku budućeg rukovodstva zarad kvalitetnog i efikasnog zdravstvenog sistema u Srbiji.
