Wisdom Leadership in Academic Health Science Centers: Leading Positive Change (Culture, Context and Quality in Health Sciences Research, Education, Leadership and Patient
Drs. Plews-Ogan and Beyt have brought together a highly valuable and coherent series of essays by multiple authors. These essays illuminate leadership for change in the rapidly evolving and stress-laden arena of health care. The target audience for the book is leadership in academic health centers, but the message applies with equal force to all of healthcare delivery. The authors begin by offering wisdom as a unifying concept of excellence in leadership. Wisdom is defined as having components of cognition, reflection, and compassion. In subsequent chapters, these three components are expanded upon to yield seven capacities of wisdom. In the process, the authors incorporate a wide variety of writings about leadership, including Jody Gittell's groundbreaking work on relational leadership and Curt Lindberg's lucid and practical account of the often-mystifying topic of complexity science. The result is a comprehensive guide to healthcare leadership that is novel in its unity and concrete applicability to everyday settings. Along the way, the book cites an abundance of references to writings on leadership and related topics. The value of the book as a real-life guide is enhanced by numerous stories of triumph and challenge in leadership. These stories connect the abstract concepts ...

Confluence of Policy and Leadership in Academic Health Science Centers: A Professional and Personal Guide (Culture, Context and Quality in Health Sciences Research,
Academic Health Science Centers are complex organizations with three principal functions: the education of the next generation of health professionals; the conduct of biomedical and clinical research that leads to new treatments and approaches to disease; and the delivery of comprehensive and advanced patient care. This is the first comprehensive book that describes in detail the knowledge and skill base necessary to successfully lead these complex organizations. Written by the world's leading authorities it combines the science of leadership, organizational structure, financial and personnel management, public relations and communications, trainee and student policy, community relations, and globalization. "This volume focuses on policy considerations that provide the foundation for AHSCs to thrive. While the legislation, challenges, and strategies will change over time, the need for strong policy to influence and guide organizational and individual behavior will not. AHSCs are complex organizations that must continue to evolve to face the multifactorial nature of health care problems. How they do so will depend to a great extent not only on having appropriate policies in place but also on their success in translating these policies into effective implementation." Andrew M. Ibra...

Out in the Rural: A Mississippi Health Center and Its War on
Out in the Rural is the unlikely story of the Tufts-Delta Health Center, which in 1966 opened in Mound Bayou, Mississippi, to become the first rural community health center in the United States. Its goal was simple: to provide health care and outreach to the region's thousands of rural poor, most of them black sharecroppers who had lived without any medical resources for generations.In Out in the Rural, historian Thomas J. Ward explores the health center's story alongside the remarkable life of its founder, Dr. H. Jack Geiger. A former teenage runaway, through a serendipitous turn of events he was befriended and taken in by the actor and Harlem Renaissance icon Canada Lee. Lee would later loan Geiger money for college, and after stints as a journalist and Merchant Marine, Geiger attended medical school and became a physician.Geiger's personal history brings a profound human element to what was accomplished deep in the Mississippi Delta. In addition to providing medical care, the staff of the Tufts-Delta Health Center worked upstream to address the fundamental determinants of health-factors such as education, poverty, nutrition, and the environment-and ask the question, "What does it take to stay healthy?"Equal parts social history and personal history, Out in the Rural is a story...
