At a recent forum, the Russian Ministry of Health announced its intentions to spend the next two years training health leaders to provide quality financial, economic and drug supply management.
The forum, titled "Russia and the World: A New Vector," made it clear the health managers will participate in active training from 2015, with the training program scheduled to end in the beginning of 2016.
Veronika Skvortsov, minister of health, reported that 3,500 managers will complete various training topics, including economics, finances and the other main areas in which health managers experience problems. They will also train on specific topics within their expertise and fields.
The very first seminar will be held Feb. 9, 2015. Managers will be trained on economic and financial topics.
Officials report that the preparation for the training has already been completed. Professional leaders in the community and the industry held several meetings to organize the training program.
An additional program is prepared for the physicians and their assistants. They will also be trained on quality management. Their training begins in 2016, after the initial group of managers is finished.
