Public health leadership 1

Wednesday, 01.10.2014 | 14:30 - 17:30

Organised by Health Promotion Administration, Ministry of Health and Welfare, Taiwan R.O.C.

Session 1 | Investigating leadership excellence to improve health and reduce inequalities

The question of health leadership, the kind of leaders that we require and the values and skills that they possess, are becoming ever more important in the context of a rapidly changing environment and wide variations in available resources. This makes leadership in public health a complex and constantly evolving issue. The importance of understanding and harnessing effective leadership as part of achieving public health goals is critical to reducing inequalities and improving health and well-being.

This first session will introduce the topic and present the latest leadership research, before considering the extent to which the educational needs of public health professionals are being met in order to develop solid leadership competencies across organisational hierarchies. Following this, leaders with a range of different professional perspectives will offer their professional and practical experience and insights on the topic of leadership for public health.
