Paediatrics: A Core Text on Child Health
In times of rapid change experience is no longer a sufficient guide to practice. Taking the principles of evidence-based medicine this is the first guide to evidence-based management. It will help managers and clinicians to make a difference to their organisation. Illustrated with case studies designed for 'the reader in a hurry' the clear layout of this practical guide is based on a questioning approach of Why? When? Where? How? and Who? which demonstrates how to apply the best evidence in decision making and in assessing performance. Obstacles to practising evidence-based management in healthcare are described with explanations of how to overcome them. Health managers and clinicians with managerial responsibilities will find this book an essential guide. Leaders in health service organisations public health doctors and public sector managers will find it of great benefit in their work.
