How can you survive and thrive as a medical manager in the ever-changing world of healthcare?

Practical Management and Leadership for Doctors is a hands-on introduction to developing the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviour required to succeed in a modern healthcare setting.

Combining their own vast experience with insights from management literature, the authors reflect on key strategies and competencies for successful and enjoyable medical management and leadership. Focussing on common issues and challenges, they examine oganisational structures and strategies for productive relationship-building, goal setting and quality maintenance. The book also stresses the importance of maintaining personal well-being and balance in the face of sometimes seemingly impossible demands.

Written in a punchy, engaging style that inspires and stimulates, this book will prove useful to all doctors new to formal management and leadership, including directors and clinical leads, and doctors working or preparing to work at a senior level.
