Public Health Leadership and Management: Cases and Context

About the eBook

"The fifteen case studies in this book place the reader in a wide variety of real public health leadership situations. . . . Each situation is presented to the student with the swirl of communications, conflicts, and conundrums that I have found accompany any difficult public health leadership judgment. The case writers have done a very good job of placing the student in public health decisional situations that, to me, feel like the reality of my own professional life."

—William L. Roper, MD, MPH, Dean, School of Public Health

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, from the Foreword

The six chapters and fifteen cases contained in this book challenge students to ask the appropriate questions and stimulate their thinking about public health leadership and management.

The chapters provide the student with:

  • a framework and tools for case analysis, and
  • the important environmental context of the health care system in general and public health systems specifically.

The 15 public health case studies:

  • are all based on actual situations faced by real public health leaders
  • encompass all of the core disciplines in public health
  • are geographically diverse, and include international content, and
  • provide substantial detail that immerses the student in meaningful decisional simulations.

The situations presented by each case are vivid and provide not only a basis for practicing professional public health judgments but also provide a lasting impression that aids in retention of the lessons learned.
