The Managing Care Reader

The Managing Care Reader

by JanetSeden (Editor), JeanetteHenderson (Editor), JulieCharlesworth (Editor), JillReynolds (Editor), Anne Bullman (Editor)


This Reader includes material relevant to everyone involved in developing new relationships in health and social care. Alongside articles on social care as traditionally conceived, it offers articles from a wide variety of settings, including those in health and education. It brings together classic management texts and material with a management focus, providing a stimulating range of perspectives on the manager's role. In the management of something as complex as care, this must involve: * listening to service users * maintaining professional values * enabling participation * facilitating learning. The Managing Care Reader reflects these imperatives as it focuses in on the experience of being in the front line. In four parts, it looks at how managers experience what they do, their managerial responsibilities, the key professional issues, and the importance of the organisational environment. It offers a rich resource for all those undertaking management courses or moving into frontline management roles in the new world of social care.
