"Leadership and management is complex and dynamic. This book challenges individual reflection and encourages professional development as it systematically introduces the reader to all aspects of leadership and management specific to the health care environment. This book is full of information and relevant practical examples that you will fully appreciate after you have read it."
"This is an excellent and comprehensive text about leadership and management in contemporary healthcare. It is well structured with 'easy to read' chapter summaries and action points which enhance the opportunity for reflection and which will enable both pre and post registration learners to apply the theory to their own practice."
"This book contains a wealth of valuable materials, from management and leadership theories to the models of practice across different disciplines. It is highly readable and informative for learners as a textbook and a tool to support new and emerging manager in health and social practice."
"This is a book that I tell my students is a ‘must read’; as it’s a very easy read and really helps them to apply the theory on leadership and management to their roles in health & social care through a series of very useful action points."
Students directed to chapters within the book for asynchronous teaching. Clear and easy to read text, informative aid to learning.
I have not currently started teaching this term. This book is currently being used at present for the reading list.
A seminal text for those studying the roles of leadership and management within health
It is clearly written and presents theories and debate well.
I am adding this to a module called developing the autonomous practitioner. This is a good companion to the Barr & Dowding Leadership publication promoting access to evidence and information relevant to year three nursing students.
