Book Description

Appropriate for health administrators in departments of sociology, social policy and nursing.
Students in pre-registration programmes and those meeting management theory for the first time.
There can be little doubt that the reforms of the last few decades within the health service have had a major impact on the management responsibilities for nurses, midwives and health visitors. Integrating management theory and principles with nursing practice, Managing in the Healthcare demonstrates how the concepts and principles of management are intrisically linked to the work that nurses do.
