Abstract

Connectivity and contemporary employment practices, together with the changing nature of how, where and when we work will impact the way in which frontline hybrid managers work into the future. Some health service organisations are already experiencing some of the anticipated challenges of contemporary hybrid clinician-manager roles. This exploratory pilot study examines the hybrid role of a clinician-manager in a geographically remote context. The remote clinician-to-manager transition was chosen because it exemplifies the nuances of managing nonconventional, insecure and flexible workforces. The four key areas identified were: preparation, support, clinical/managerial role conflict, and the work environment. The findings suggested that further research examining the benefits of relational management practices in supporting hybrid clinician-managers is warranted.
