Leaders Making a Difference!
Dr. Atefeh Samadi-niya (member since 2006 and currently the Vice-Chair of the Communications Committee) responded to an invitation from David Kay, President, encouraging members to take advantage of the Chapter’s Linkedin website. Samadi-niya posted an advertisement regarding a study called: Canadian National Study of Interprofessional Relationships between Physicians and Hospital Administrators (CANSIRPH).
Research literature shows that physician-hospital relations are a crucial part of healthcare leadership that improves quality of patient care and reduces healthcare costs.
As a Doctor of Medicine-Doctor of Health Administration, Samadi-niya’s research had the cooperation of the Canadian College of Healthcare Leaders (CCHL) and the Canadian Society of Physician Executives (CSPE) to send out the CANSIRPH invitation to managers, leaders, and executives across Canadian hospitals.
At first, Samadi-niya who pursued her DHA (PhD) in the U.S., decided to work on a research study that benefits Canadian healthcare system. She searched for a mentor from the Canadian Healthcare system and the ACHE mentorship program matched her with one of the Ontario Hospital CEOs, Mr. Kenneth Tremblay, FACHE. This learning opportunity led to the birth of CANSIRPH in Samadi-niya’s mind, who studied both sides of the clinical and administrative hierarchies of the healthcare system.
Thanks to those leaders who participated in CANSIRPH and provided their opinion, if you have any question about CANSIRPH or you would like to participate in CANSIRPH, please contact Dr. Atefeh Samadi-niya directly at Atefeh.email@example.com.
