Research Handbook on Contemporary Human Resource Management for Health Care

About the eBook

This insightful Research Handbook delivers a comprehensive analysis of the significant contemporary trends and issues affecting human resource management (HRM) for health care, and their subsequent impact on individuals, organisations and national health services.<P><br/><br/>Over the last twenty years the combination of new role creation, technical advances in clinical work, changes to clinician working hours and patient-service expectation has changed HRM within health care beyond recognition. Bringing together original contributions from leading international scholars, this Research Handbook utilises empirical evidence within theoretical frameworks to explain the dynamics behind the management of human resources for health care and their resulting effects. Through an in-depth analysis of the potential means of improvement, contributors highlight key action areas for critical issues facing health care providers, such as the collaboration between HRM and public health, the importance of support workers and the crucial need for HRM leadership at multiple organisational levels.<P><br/><br/>The <i>Research Handbook on Contemporary Human Resource Management for Health Care</i> provides a forward-thinking resource for students, academics and researchers working in HRM health and social care, health care leadership and health management. It will also be of great benefit to policy makers, human resource managers and clinical professionals in both local and national health care organisations.<P>
