The Handbook for Health Care Management is about management and the manager′s real and potential contribution to a more effective and efficient health care system. The book consists of a series of original chapters written by experts in a number of areas of health care management and leadership. All the authors have made important and significant contributions to our understanding of their areas through their research and writing. The Handbook provides a unique opportunity for this group of experts to share their ideas, state them in a concise manner, and offer useful suggestions to prospective health care managers. Just as the authors were carefully chosen, the topics for inclusion were carefully evaluated. The fourteen topics included in this handbook represent the consensus of this diverse and informed group.

The Handbook for Health Care Management is organised around three major parts. Part I deals with the management of relationships. Part II focuses on the tools managers possess in developing and maintaining efficient and effective organisations. Part III examines key organizational processes with chapters on team building, visionary leadership, change and innovation, organizational design , and motivation.
