Leadership, management and team working in nursing

Shirley Bach, Peter Ellis

Research output: Book/ReportBook - authoredpeer-review


Leadership, management, and team working have become central to the role of the nurse, as recognized in the UK's latest Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) standards for education. This book assists students in meeting the NMC requirements, and helps them apply recent leadership and management theory to the nurse's role. It explores students' current perceptions and concerns, giving practical guidance to immediate challenges that a new nurse will face: team working, delegation, conflict management, and negotiation. It then considers staff development, motivation, mentoring, supervising, and creating a learning environment. The book also explores more complex aspects, such as management theory, recruitment, risk management, and managing change
