Rural Health Webinar Series – The rise of the business manager: Practice management evolution or revolution

On-demand recorded 7 Dec 2023

As practices have developed so has the role of management. Having emerged from the pandemic period and with the proposed changes and reform in the health sector, practices are looking to their manger to work on the business not just manage in an operational capacity. The role of the manager is further complicated with the location of a practice; there is no doubt the challenges of a rural and/or remote practice vary significantly to those of an urban practice.


Learning outcomes

  1. Outline the difference between a practice manager and a business manager.
  2. Identify the key competencies of a practice / business manager.
  3. Identify five key challenges facing managers in the next three years.
  4. Highlight the differences and similarities between managing a rural practice and an urban practice.
  5. Provide some tips and tricks to enhance your effectiveness as a rural practice / business manager.
