This popular title provides a sound practical guide to the complex world of management in psychiatric practice, and is essential reading for senior trainees and consultants. The editors have brought together a host of knowledgeable and well-known authors who write from their experience in the ever-changing National Health Service. Topics covered include the various skills necessary for running services, such as management of finances, resources and personnel issues, and topics central to today's changing scene, such as revalidation, service users' expectations and clinical governance. The book concludes with a section on personal development, addressing such issues as presentation skills, stress management, mentoring, managing committees and dealing with the media. A chapter on `Surviving as a junior consultant' is included and the book is also very useful as a reference and survival guide for more senior psychiatrists. Third edition has been completely rewritten. Written by authors with direct, current experience.

This new edition will be completely revised and updated to reflect changes and developments since the second edition was published over 10 years ago. Part I gives a theoretical overview which describes the management structures that will be encountered by psychiatry clinicians. It covers the Mental Health Services National Service Framework (NSF), financial management and manpower planning. Part II outlines conflict and changes in today's NHS and includes many new chapters on important emerging issues such as: clinical governance; ethics and confidentiality; and users' expectations. Finally, Part III deals with personal development and focuses on new skills required such as: presentation skills; information technology, and managing the media. The book is aimed at higher specialist trainees in psychiatry but will also be useful for established consultants. Chapters can be read as self-contained units for easy referencing.
