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.

Through extensive situational examples, Dr. Bryce Taylor illuminates the principles of medical leadership, focusing on the challenges, the solutions, and the daily life of the head of a division, department, or program.

Taylor outlines successes as well as failures, emphasizing that effective leadership is based on common sense, integrity, an orientation to the welfare of colleagues, and a passionate, consistent commitment to the mission of an organization.
