After the roundtable, all participants received additional methodological materials that will allow them to begin implementing the program.  Iryna Tymoshchenko-Petrova, co-author of the program, talked about the plans and importance of introducing the certificate program:

“This program has several critically important aspects. First, it aims to make management skills training publicly available. After all, the world is moving fast and we all need to keep our knowledge up to date. The 4 modules of the program allow, in conditions of limited time (which managers usually lack), to immerse themselves in the most important features of managing a healthcare facility. Second, the training is live, offline, and involves close communication among participants, so they not only gain knowledge, but also the support of the professional community and can share experiences with each other. Third, the actual learning process is specific: the program includes a large amount of practical tasks and discussions, work with cases, and the use of other relevant tools for adult learning. As part of the training, teachers and instructors have access to training models that ensure the maximum impact of training people with experience. So they can use these tools to the fullest. We sincerely hope that the program implemented in medical educational institutions will help managers and supervisors to perform their work efficiently, especially in terms of managing such complex systems as a healthcare institution”.
