Welcome to Associate Professor Camilla Sløk

At the Platform it is always a pleasure to welcome a new member into the platform society. This time we have the pleasure of welcoming Associate Professor Camilla Sløk from the Department of Organization, CBS who will be joining the Platform’s cluster on Health Governance. We talked with Camilla about her expectations about joining the platform.

How is your research relevant to Health Governance cluster? Could you give us some examples?

“I've been involved in public management and values for nearly 13 years. I look particularly at professionals’ values, their identity or resistance according to political ideas and political demands for development and change - a relation the often perceive as disruptive because their overall knowledge is not similar with politicians, public servants or leaders of a certain area. I previously worked at the hospital in a research project regarding patients with serious illness and their use of the hospital priest. Here, I wrote a review of this area. Previously, I have also written more generally about the process of grieving. In 2014, I published a book about leadership and how responsibility and guilt floating around in organizations especially when no one takes responsibility for hard decisions.”

What do you expect to gain from the collaboration with the Public-Private Platform and the Health Governance cluster?

“I am looking forward to get further insight into how the healthcare sector’s professionals transform their professional values into practice in the meeting with the citizens, and in interaction or counteraction with political demands.”

What do you believe that you can contribute with to the members of the cluster?

“I think that my knowledge, especially from education concerning management of professionals, will put existing or currently knowledge within the cluster in perspective so that the general and overall organizational and managerial points concerning. public management will be more clear.”
