Medical Leadership : A Toolkit for Service Development and System Transformation - (Paperback)
About this item
Today’s health care systems need doctors and consultants to act as leaders, in addition to carrying out their clinical role. This book identifies the key elements of successful leadership through 'medically led' service development and systems transformation, and shows how this benefits patient care.
The authors provide a conceptual framework of medical leadership and a set of scientific methods and tools that make a significant contribution to advancing quality and transforming services in health care. On top of this, they present analytical tools which medical professionals can use to support their own improvement or systems transformation strategy, including a way of measuring the return on investment in leadership at the individual level.
Weaved throughout the book are real-life case studies from medical leaders across the world, providing students with valuable practical insights. Chapter summaries and reflections are provided to support learning.
Medical Leadership will be essential reading for students on medical and clinical leadership courses internationally, as well as for all practising doctors, consultants and GPs.
