The Global Healthcare Manager by Michael Counte (Editor); Bernardo Ramierez (Editor); Daniel J. West Jr FACHE (Editor); William Aaronson (Editor)Instructor Resources: Instructor's manual, PowerPoint slides, and a test bank. Opportunities in healthcare can lead managers to new departments, to other health systems, or even around the globe. Healthcare managers who take on assignments in North America and around the world must be equipped with the knowledge and tools to work effectively with the systems, cultures, governments, and management teams of their new environments. As the profile of the global healthcare manager grows, so too does the need for future leaders to develop the skills and competencies necessary to achieve organizational success while improving the health of individuals and populations. The Global Healthcare Manager: Competencies, Concepts, and Skills provides a comprehensive overview of healthcare management and leadership in a global context, with real-world perspectives from a broad range of countries, cultures, and delivery settings. Written for both students and practitioners, the book addresses the growing diffusion of diverse managerial concepts, theories, and technologies across the world's health systems. The text carries a strong cross-cultural emphasis, with chapters written by international authors who are experts on the health systems of specific countries. Key concepts are reinforced through examples, case studies, vignettes, exercises, and practical recommendations and guidelines. The book is organized into four parts: Essential Health Services Management Concepts and PracticesLeadership, Organizational Design, and ChangeManaging the Organization-Environment InterfaceLooking Ahead in Global Health ManagementToday's global healthcare landscape requires managers to be effective leaders and change agents, with the ability to achieve positive health outcomes while navigating a dynamic and increasingly complex environment.
