Abstract

Outlines the author’s experiences and the lessons learnt from work in the field of management training for doctors and other medical personnel. Explains the policy of using a dual approach: economic concepts and ideas in practical situations. States that by adopting this participative, problem‐solving approach and involving the discipline of economics in tandem with other skills and subjects, it addresses some of the issues which medical personnel face in their places of work.
