About the Authors
  • Leading and Managing Health Services: An Australasian Perspective provides a comprehensive overview of leadership and management in health services with a particular focus on the Australasian context. This text aims to help students develop leadership and management skills, and to critically analyse the issues they will face in practical health service settings. The book features a contemporary approach to learning, in line with the Health LEADS Australia framework which focuses on five key leadership attributes: Leads self, Engages systems, Achieves outcomes, Drives innovations and Shapes systems. Further, it offers a rich pedagogy both in the text and companion website. Chapters include case studies to provide examples of management and leadership issues in healthcare settings, and a wealth of reflective, short answer and multiple-choice questions to extend student learning. Written by respected Australian academics and industry experts, this text will equip health professional students with practical skills to successfully manage change and innovation.
