Leadership in Health Care has established itself as an authoritative yet accessible resource for nursing and professions allied to health. Students -as well as professional leaders working in practice - who need a clear and engaging guide to the key theories and practice skills required for effective leadership in health care will benefit from this text. Now revised and updated into a second edition, the book retains its successful approach of looking at leadership theory from an individual, team and organisational perspective, and continues to focus on major areas such as problem solving, dealing with conflict, unhealthy behaviours and notions of quality, diversity and individual values. This new edition, however, responds to recent political changes in health care with the inclusion of two new chapters on interprofessional working and on emotional intelligence. The authors have also taken the opportunity to focus more clearly on service users, and take forward the concept of project management. The book's ability to bridge the gap between theory, research and practice is one of the reasons why it is so highly-regarded. To strengthen this key feature, more case studies, activities and self-evaluation exercises have been integrated into the existing range of practical material so that readers have further opportunities to analyse their own self-knowledge and leadership skills.
