Managing in a healthcare organization requires fine-tuned skills. Charged with “getting things done,” managers are at the center of all the changes affecting healthcare delivery. Dunn and Haimann’s Healthcare Management will help readers gain the skills they need to motivate their teams to meet increasing demands. The book uses the functions of management—planning, organizing, staffing, influencing, and controlling—as the primary framework for explaining the supervisor role. The details of each function are explained and illustrated with examples of common situations. The concept of authority is also weaved throughout the book.
