This concise and authoritative guide presents the underlying principles needed for daily management of health programs, using examples of current program operations in urban and rural health departments. These examples describe how to integrate health planning into daily operations while linking local outcomes to national and state objectives. This book will enable all health department managers in supervisory capacities to improve current overall and day-to-day operations. The value of accountability, both political and financial, is stressed throughout the book. Building on the latest edition of the "Model Standards for Community Health Services" and the "National Health Objectives for the Year 2000," the text addresses such topics as changing health policies, environmental policy management, and the use of electronic data systems. The author also provides useful information on marketing health department services and working with the media to defuse explosive issues.
