9780074711859: From Clinician to Manager: An Introduction to Hospital and Health Services Management

The management of hospitals and health service organizations is a function health care professionals in a variety of contexts must undertake, a function that requires skills and knowledge not covered in clinical training yet which is central to the smooth running of those institutions. "From Clinician to Manager" explains the essential management issues characteristic of the health service sector. It focuses on practical, relevant information drawn from key management principles and integrates them into the context of the health care system. In an informative, accessible manner the book covers a broad selection of key issues: the fundamentals of being a manager; organizational and managerial skills; how the health care system operates (in private and public sectors); financial management; and the law and how it affects health services.
