We are organizing a Special Issue on Interdiscipinarity in health and healthcare from a perspective of management and prevention framework in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, a peer-reviewed, scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information about the journal, we refer you to https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/ijerph.
Our potential authors are conference participants (http://www.wz.uw.edu.pl/portale/konferencja-naukowa-interdisciplinarity-in-health-and-health-care/dzial/about; http://www.wz.uw.edu.pl/portale/konferencja-naukowa-interdisciplinarity-in-health-and-health-care/dzial/program-english) under the auspices of IJERPH. Most of them are healthcare managers and young scientists researching a chance of significant economic (and quality) and safety improvements in the operation of hospitals and other health care institutions.
The issues presented are visibly important. Assuming that specialized teams which identify, analyze, and implement remedial activities for reducing the risk of adverse events would operate in health care institutions, the advantages would be felt at every level of operation of the institution, both for employees and for patients. Moreover, medical institutions would be better protected against claims filed by law firms.
This Special Issue takes into account the effects of education in medical and health sciences, economy, legal, social, and technical studies (interdisciplinary studies). The interconnection of scientific fields is necessary to ensure that decision makers might be prepared for comprehensive management of a health institution/facility.
The effects of those investigations may be implemented in healthcare facilities and commercialized, supporting national innovation as a result.
