Effective Leadership and Management in Nursing will help you be an effective nursing manager. Today's rapidly changing, volatile healthcare environment demands highly developed management skills and superb leadership. The text combines practicality with conceptual understanding. It taps the expertise of contributors from many relevant disciplines, especially healthcare management.
The updated 9th edition offers new or expanded coverage of the Affordable Care Act and evolving models of healthcare. The text explores cultural and gender diversity; quality management; emotional leadership; social media; harassing, bullying, and lack of civility in healthcare. The revision also covers emergency preparedness for terrorism, disasters, mass shootings, and prevention of workplace violence. Two new chapters round out this award-winning text: "Understanding Legal and Ethical Issues" and "Imagining the Future."
