Leadership and Management in Healthcare by Neil Gopee

Leadership and management are essential skills for all qualified care professionals, regardless of the position that they hold. This best-selling text book has been designed to support you on your journey from an emerging registered care professional through to becoming a care manager. It includes strong emphasis on how management theory applies to care that you will actually deliver in the clinical setting, and supports you to develop your skills through action points, case studies and good practice guidelines. This second edition has been updated to include:

* Further case examples to help you see how to apply theory in your practice

* The latest policy and research to enable you to be fully up-to-date, including The Health and Social Care Act 2012, the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust inquiry and safeguarding adults and children

* Recommended further reading and web resources to accompany each chapter.

The book will be ideal for all nursing, health and social care students taking modules on leadership, management and transition to practice in their final year, as well as newly qualified professionals or those seeking to refresh their skills.

Leadership and Management in Healthcare Reviews

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

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

About Neil Gopee

Neil Gopee is Lecturer at Coventry University in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences teaching mainly research and evidence informed practice. For several years until very recently, Neil was Course Director for the mentorship courses at Coventry University, is currently external examiner for mentorship delivered at Manchester University, and is also reviewer for Studies in Higher Education, amongst other academic responsibilities. From the author: I first qualified as a nurse a few decades ago 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 also completing my doctorate in continuing professional education at University of Warwick. My first peer-reviewed article was published in 1991 based on my then nurse tutor role. The 1990s were when nurse education programmes became a part of university provision, which 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 (now in its third edition) and Practice Teaching in Healthcare textbooks. I have also had chapters published in edited books and a range of peer-reviewed articles.
