|Consensus management is presented in the context of emerging trends and challenges in health and hospital management. Consensus is viewed differently in organizations. Consensus management approaches used in Australia, Ireland, United Kingdom, United States and New Zealand are explored along with the advantages and disadvantages to using consensus management in healthcare organizations. Carney (2006) designed the ‘Consensus Management Model of Healthcare’ that incorporates concepts of strategic involvement, commitment to the organization and organizational culture. The model was developed from findings from her study undertaken amongst 860 middle manager health care professionals working in 60 of the 65 acute care hospitals in the Republic of Ireland. She found that a multidisciplinary approach to health care management incorporates managerial, behavioural, professional and organizational dimensions, resulting in professionals being committed to delivering excellent health care in the most effective and efficient way possible. Identification of practical challenges facing management in the education and management of advanced nurse practitioners is explored.|
