Product Description

Review

 

An excellent combination of theoretical concepts, pulling together the core principles of management and leadership in healthcare and packed with introspective activities. It will engage the reader to develop innovative ideas which are transferable to real life situations. (Vinoda P. Coopamah 2013-10-07)

 

This book recognises the notion of leadership at all levels. Much of the current leadership material focuses on senior management so having something that applies to more junior staff in practice is helpful. (Dr Jane Parker 2013-10-07)

About the Author

I am currently employed as a senior lecturer in Health and Life Sciences at Coventry University, and have until very recently also worked as Associate lecturer for the Open University. My role as external examiner at various Higher Education Institutions in my subject areas has also broadened my insights into the two subject areas that I teach and research: (1) learning, teaching and assessment (under- and post-graduate), and (2) management and leadership in healthcare settings.

I qualified in 'Adult Nursing' in the first place and worked in general surgical nursing for a year before moving on to complete the ‘registered mental health nurse’ course. Through my nursing career, a combination of clinical experiences in primary care and general intensive care nursing was also supplemented by attendance at numerous professional development short and long courses, including various workshops on writing for publication and completing my doctorate in continuing professional education at Warwick University.

My first peer-reviewed article was published in 1991 based on my then nurse tutor role. The 1990s when nurse education programmes became a part of university provision, this further opened up authoring opportunities, and I negotiated with Alison Poyner, commissioning editor at SAGE publications, to write the Mentoring and Supervision in Healthcare book, the first edition of which was published in 2007. Along the way, I also worked with SAGE publications to write Leadership and Management in Healthcare and Practice Teaching in Healthcare textbooks. I have also had chapters published in edited books, and a range of peer-reviewed articles.

Excellent resource to dip into. It is relevant to practice and offers case examples which can be easily applied. To develop skills it offers action points for consideration.

I thoroughly recommend this book for refreshing existing skills as you will learn something new.

Its concise and the chapters are very easy to follow. It is referenced for extension reading or to apply in essays.
