Announcement: MASHAV Course “Management Policy and Leadership in Nursing” at Tver State Medical Academy
14.10.2009 г.

According to the World Bank evaluation of the Russian system of health care (“Russia Health Policy”, 2007, The World Bank) role of nurses and nursing in the health care system is underestimated, misunderstood and thus should be reviewed. In addition, nurses, particularly, chief nurses have lack of knowledge in the field of public health, including modern principles of medical management and organizational theory of health care. It is widely recognized that changes and reforms in health services of countries in the transition period require medical staff in general, and nurses in particular, to be familiar with the health policy of the system in which they work and to use advanced methods of management. During the program, students will acquire theoretical know-how and management skills with an emphasis on leadership development.
