Speaker: Wu Liu (Hong Kong Polytechnic University)
Theme:Management and Organization Research in the Chinese Healthcare Context: Trends, Opportunities, and Challenges
Time:9:00- 10:15 am, May 26, 2021 (China Time)

The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed not only medical but also management researchers to the edge of rethinking the management and organizational issues in the healthcare system. This talk highlights that healthcare organizations provide a rich context to produce new management theories and insights. Based on my own research experience and an initial review of published articles in top-tier journals in the past 30 years, I would like to share my observations of the trends, opportunities, and challenges in conducting management and organization research in the healthcare context, especially in the Chinese healthcare context.
