In this insightful book, a broad group of social work managers discusses what makes an effective social work administrator. The contributing authors describe their work and work environment, detailing what qualities and traits are needed--within themselves, their co-workers, and their organizations--to be effective and successful now and in the future. Social Work Leadership in Healthcare provides models readers can follow to help improve the social services functions in their own healthcare organizations. The contributing authors discuss issues applicable to the numerous and evolving healthcare issues in urban, center-city, suburban, and rural communities. They provide a stimulating and exciting group of ideas useful to social workers struggling with the same issues in their day-to-day practice. The book acts as a challenge for future social work administrators in healthcare organizations to carry on in the bold, innovative, and compassionate tradition they represent. Today, social work services are faced with a transformation of the healthcare milieu. In the move toward managed and capitated care, social work and other departments are being decentralized, and social work directors are assuming programmatic operational positions in the healthcare arena. Social Work Leadership in Healthcare helps current and future social work leaders in healthcare maintain and expand traditional values and practice commitments in this changing world.

Leadership in Healthcare opens up the world of leadership studies to all healthcare professionals. Physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals spend thousands of hours studying the science and technology of healthcare, and years or even decades putting into practice recent findings in molecular biology, clinical diagnostics, and therapeutics. By contrast, the topic of leadership and the traits of effective leaders tend to receive remarkably little attention. Yet no less vital than an understanding of how to interpret diagnostic tests and design care plans is a grasp of healthcare's organizational side, including the operation of multidisciplinary care teams, academic departments, and hospitals. If patient care, education, research, and professional service are to thrive in years to come, we must do a better job of preparing healthcare professionals to lead effectively. Composed of insightful and thought-provoking essays on the key facets of leadership, this book is designed to meet the needs of several important constituencies, including educators of health professionals who wish to incorporate leadership into their educational programs; health professional organizations seeking to enhance their members' leadership effectiveness, and individual health professionals who wish to embrace leadership in their personal and professional lives. This book represents a vital resource for health professionals who wish to enhance the quality of leadership in health professions education, practice, and professional development. In addition to regularly caring for patients, Richard Gunderman, MD PhD MPH brings to this discussion a wealth of personal experience in professional and organizational leadership.

"Hartley and Benington's Leadership for healthcare offers a fresh and compelling approach to understanding leadership as part of a wider frame of organisational issues. Their six-part leadership framework provides a useful means to draw down key lessons from the wider leadership literature into the healthcare setting."-John Storey, Professor of Management, The Open University Business School "Never before has leadership been such an important lever for reform in health and healthcare. This important work provides a clear framework to understand healthcare leadership. It is also sensibly grounded in the complex adaptive system of delivering health and healthcare. This work is a refreshing departure from many other simplistic approaches which see leadership merely as a response to context rather than a complex dynamic process."-Dame Yve Buckland, Chair, NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement. Writing, advice and training on leadership is growing at a vigorous rate with various frameworks now competing for attention. Having a clear sense of which leadership ideas and practices are rooted in sound theory and convincing evidence, and which are more speculative, is vital for healthcare leaders. This book provides a coherent set of six lenses through which to scrutinise the leadership literature relevant to healthcare – leadership concepts, characteristics, contexts, challenges, capabilities and consequences. It offers a view of leadership beyond the traditional focus on the individual, and argues instead that leadership has to be understood and developed as a complex set of practices by many people within specific organisational and inter-organisational contexts and cultures. This framework is particularly valuable in the highly dynamic and changing context of the public and voluntary sectors generally, and of the NHS and the field of healthcare specifically. Leadership for healthcare will be useful not only to those who have a formal or informal leadership position in a healthcare organisation, but also to those in government, education, housing, leisure services, the police, fire services and the voluntary sector.
