This is a real-world critique of the ideologies and theories of health care management as applied to practice today. Central issues, including people management and workplace education, are approached from contemporary, theoretical and practical perspectives. Concepts of training, quality, finance, information and transition management are considered in detail, with a strong emphasis on inter-professional working. This book should appeal to students studying general management courses, as well as human resource managers, health professionals and management trainees.
