Health care management is a complex discipline in today's environment. Once you have grasped the management rules, theories and concepts, life becomes easier as a health care professional. This book starts with the important element of self-awareness and demonstrates how the individual interacts with the health service and grows in confidence by developing self-management skills. The theme develops into important concepts of team working and managing groups of people for the benefit of quality care.

The book aims to offer a student-centered approach by helping you to reflect on your learning processes and examine your assumptions. Practice examples from a variety of disciplines highlight the application of theory to practice
