Management of Healthcare Organizations: An Introduction

Management of Healthcare Organizations: An Introduction explains management as an integrated body of knowledge and shows how to apply it in healthcare organizations.

The book opens with background on the healthcare industry and an explanation of what management is and how it evolved. The chapters that follow provide classic and contemporary management theory, principles, methods, and tools for new managers. Many important topics are covered including planning, organizing, leading, decision making, and managing change.

Written by one author, whose experience bridges the academic and professional worlds, the content is cohesive, practical, easy-to-read, and engaging. The book is filled with learning aids, including chapter objectives, on-page definitions, key points, real-world examples, in-chapter exercises, case studies, realistic applications, and discussion questions.

The 15 chapters are interconnected by a case study that runs throughout the book, showing how concepts from individual chapters can be used together to manage a healthcare organization.

Instructor Resources: PowerPoint slides, answers to discussion questions and case studies, and a test bank. To see a sample, click the link in the right-hand navigation bar.
