Overview

Renowned nursing leaders Tim Porter-O'Grady and Cathleen Wilson have created a book that defines the context and content of the role of the manager/leader in a transformed health care environment. With the latest research and thinking on management in 'point-of-service' organizations, this book shows practical applications of a new health care leadership paradigm with examples that span the continuum of care (hospital, ambulatory, subacute, rehab, long-term and home care). Performance tools, end-of-chapter questions, and an extensive, annotated bibliography will make this the health care leader's blueprint for adjusting roles and behaviors to maximize their effectiveness in today's radically changed environment.
