Medicine: general issues

The management changes which are occurring in business and industry, such as organizational downsizing and restructuring, a rise in the temporary workforce, pay-for performance, and the implementation of total quality management programs, are also being adopted in the field of health care. Professional nurses and students will find that keeping abreast of these changes is crucial to their career development, and the second edition of this successful text will help them do just that. The text is organized around the four management functions of Planning, Organizing, Leadership and Evaluation, and includes new chapters on total quality management, the theory of human resource development, and collective bargaining, as well as updated chapters on budgeting, staffing and merit pay increases. Extensive examples and experiential exercises throughout the text demonstrate how nursing management theory works successfully in practice, and numerous figures clearly illustrate the theories covered in the text. This text is appropriate for both students and professionals in the area of nurse management.
