This new edition will be completely revised and updated to reflect changes and developments since the second edition was published over 10 years ago. Part I gives a theoretical overview which describes the management structures that will be encountered by psychiatry clinicians. It covers the Mental Health Services National Service Framework (NSF), financial management and manpower planning. Part II outlines conflict and changes in today's NHS and includes many new chapters on important emerging issues such as: clinical governance; ethics and confidentiality; and users' expectations. Finally, Part III deals with personal development and focuses on new skills required such as: presentation skills; information technology, and managing the media. The book is aimed at higher specialist trainees in psychiatry but will also be useful for established consultants. Chapters can be read as self-contained units for easy referencing.
