4.0 out of 5 stars Horses for Courses, 21 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Managing in Health and Social Care (Paperback)
I was looking at this text from the viewpoint of one having have taught Health and Care staff at all levels. As the Introduction explains, it is a compilation from material prepared for a professional course in Health and Social Care and up dated for a new edition. After a rather mundane outline of 'leader' 'manager', management topics which needed some adaption to the particular organisations under review, it gets down to business, engaging the reader/learner in practice via checklists and recipes. In the hands of an well versed teacher and engaged students' own experiences, the suggested activities would work well. Case studies are rather lacking but there is one good one about Mr Jones, a terminally ill cancer patient, which cuts to some of the underlying problems of providing a connected-up-service in world of different protocols and maybe different ideologies. Although budgeting is covered costing and its connection with activity analysis and efficiency seems to be missing. I found covering this found the insightful to practitioners, technicians and professionals, at this level and it might well be included in a further edition..
