Management Principles for Health Professionals is a practical guide for new or future practicing healthcare managers. The customary activities of the manager-planning, organizing, decision making, staffing, motivating, and budgeting-are succinctly defined, explained, and presented with detailed examples drawn from a variety of health care settings. Students will learn proven management concepts, techniques, models, and tools for managing individuals or teams with skill and ease. The Fifth Edition is loaded with all-new examples from real-world healthcare settings. It addresses the most current topics in health care such as patient safety initiatives, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), revenue recovery efforts, and diversity training. Specific Chapter Updates: Chapter 2- NEW! A completely new chapter, concerned largely with the management of change and the manager's role as a change agent. This chapter anchors and complements the balance of the book with significant pertinent examples relevant to what's occurring today in health care. Much has been added concerning addressing change with employees, and developments such as the advent of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) are addressed in detail. Chapter 6- The chapter entitled Organizing (formerly Chapter 5) has been expanded to include enlarged consideration of outsourcing and information on telecommuting and using temporary workers. Chapter 10- NEW! This revised and reorganized section combines the former Chapter 6 (Staffing: Recruiting and Retaining Quality Employees) and the former Chapter 10 (Adaptation, Motivation, and Conflict Management). Chapter 11- The chapter entitled Training and Development: The Backbone of Motivation and Retention now includes considerable new information about orientation, both all-employee and departmental, including comprehensive orientation checklists. Chapter 14- This revised chapter, Communication: The Glue that Binds Us Together, includes a greatly expanded section on written communication.
