Today's health care systems need doctors and consultants to act as leaders, in addition to carrying out their clinical role. This textbook identifies the key elements of successful leadership through 'medically led' service development and systems transformation, and shows how this benefits patient care.
The authors provide a conceptual framework of medical leadership and a set of scientific methods and tools that make a significant contribution to advancing quality and transforming services in health care. On top of this, they present analytical tools which medical professionals can use to support their own improvement or systems transformation strategy, including a way of measuring the return on investment in leadership at the individual level.
Weaved throughout the textbook are real-life case studies from medical leaders across the world (including Europe, North America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australasia), providing students with valuable practical insights. Chapter summaries and discussion questions are also provided to support learning.
Medical Leadership will be essential reading for students on medical and clinical leadership courses internationally, as well as for all practising doctors, consultants and GPs.
