Book Description

The introduction in Ireland in

2008 of the clinical directorate model as the accepted method for the

organisation of health services and the involvement of clinicians in the

management of these services is one of the most significant developments to

happen in the Irish health service in recent years. It poses major challenges

for all clinical and medical professions.

In Clinical Directorates in the Irish Health Service, Yvonne O’Shea explores

the history and evolution of clinical directorates over the last thirty years

in order to arrive at a deep understanding of the thinking behind them and the

impact they are likely to have on Irish health service.

This book is about making the

right choices in the management of health services. It suggests that the

involvement of clinicians in management and in making decisions about how

resources are used, in acute and primary settings, is the most efficient way to

guarantee the effective use of resources and the safety of patients.

Clinical Directorates in the Irish Health Service provides Irish

clinical professionals with a resource to assist them in understanding the

clinical directorate model and their own role within it.
