The first edition of Leadership Roles and Management Functions in Nursing presented the symbiotic elements of leadership and management, with an emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking. This ninth edition maintains this precedent with a balanced presentation of a strong theory component along with a variety of real-world scenarios in the experiential learning exercises.
Responding to reviewer recommendations, we have added and deleted content. In particular, we have attempted to strengthen the leadership component of the book while maintaining a balance of management content. We have also attempted to increase the focus on quality and safety as well as health-care finance, and used outpatient/community settings as the location for more learning exercises.
