Description

Practical Leadership and Management in Healthcare is the definitive ‘how to’ guide for leadership and management in nursing and healthcare. Now in its second edition, it provides a comprehensive analysis of the theories, models and skills of leading and managing needed by UK healthcare professionals, and provides a basis for developing knowledge, skills and behaviours needed for effective leadership and management.

 

Nursing and healthcare professionals of all levels are required to demonstrate effective leadership and management skills; planning, organising, delivering and evaluating care are management responsibilities that occur every day, whilst anticipating patient needs and motivating others are ways of leading with integrity. This book offers clear and practical advice on how to make an impact as a leader, from the frontline to the boardroom.

‘Well structured, logical approach [including] a wealth of valuable information. Engages the reader from the first sentence to the last, offering challenging questions at the end of each chapter for further development of understanding…a very engaging approach.’

 

Lesley Andrews, University of Stirling

 

‘It has a very clear style…covers all the main theories but at the same time is succinct…it is excellent that it is now written from a UK perspective, and the theory is outlined very clearly, [making] complex topics easy to understand.’

 

Ann Dalton-O’Connor, University of Greenwich

 

‘Simple, easy-on-the-eye layout that enables you to read it as a continuous text or dip into it for reference. It has a sound evidence base, with a mixture of seminal works and more contemporary material.’

 

Mark Sewart, Defence School of Postgraduate Medical Studies, Birmingham City University
