About me

I am Makani Hemadri.
Makani is my family name or surname and where I come from that goes first and my given name is Hemadri and that goes next/second/last.

The purpose of this blog is to share my thoughts on the Philosophy and Epistemology of healthcare

I source my writing on my reflections on life in general and in healthcare.
My attitude is seriously influenced by my formal learning at the
- Advanced Training Program in Healthcare Delivery Improvement, Intermountain Healthcare, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA
- Top Managers Programme, Kings Fund, London, UK
- Heart of Yoga, Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram, Chennai, India

I teach some of this stuff at the post-graduate course on healthcare improvement and leadership at University of Hull

My mini e-book called Standardised Management Conversation, provides a logical model template based on clinical lean on how senior managers and directors in healthcare can have meaningful interactions with their reports; the principles are applicable to non-healthcare sector as well.
