From the Back Cover:

Practical leadership and Management in Nursing is a UK adaptation of the award-winning book ‘Effective Leadership and Management in Nursing’.  It is particularly suited to students, nurses in, or aspiring to front line leadership roles, and those already in management roles who need a practical guide to effectiveness in the role.  This edition addresses the challenges facing leaders and managers in today’s NHS and offers practical advice as well as explanation of the major approaches to leadership and management.

Practical leadership and Management in Nursing:

  • Presents an overview of this area and the context in which nurses lead and manage.  It includes chapters on the various organisations that comprise the NHS and addresses how power and politics affect leadership and care.
  • Provides guidance on practical skills for managing and leading including communication, successful delegation, working in teams, managing conflict, motivating others, and leading change. 
  • Includes management tools that assist the new team leader to master core skills such as budget management, information management, recruiting, clinical supervision and quality improvement. 

Each chapter contains:

  • Case studies and practical examples drawn from practice
  • Tools to use in every day situations
  • A summary of learning in the ‘What you now know’ section. 
  • ‘Questions to Challenge You’ to aid reflection on learning and guidance for applying it in practice.
