Leadership is critical to nursing and is displayed across a wide range of settings including the practice environment, management, education and research. As such, Clinical Leadership: Innovation into action is directed towards 'ground level' clinical staff, many of whom are, although they may not see it, clinical leaders in health care organisations. The book offers practical, research-based guidance and examples that will inspire, motivate, support and facilitate clinical leaders (or aspiring clinical leaders) in the application of clinical leadership skills. Written for health professionals who act principally in direct client/patient care, it describes the difference between leadership and management. It sets out a new theory of leadership: congruent leadership, primarily focused on how nurses and other health professionals lead at the bedside. Containing case studies and activities, Clinical Leadership supports nursing students, nurse practitioners and health professionals as they strive to develop clinical leadership skills, and as such clinical excellence. The book aims not only to develop, but also support strong nursing leaders, equipping them with the skills needed to foster future nurses for generations to come.

    Comments about Clinical Leadership:

    I bought the book as a compulsory text book for my studies in Masters of Nursing. It would have to be the best text book I have ever had to learn from because it reads almost like a novel, very easy to read and packed with enough relevant information without excess waffling.

      Comments about Clinical Leadership:

      This is a fantastic book. Obviously its appeal is limited to people either studying management or have an interest in it. Very easy to read and understand. A lot of the concepts are in my opinion there for the sake of it but that isn't the books fault, that's labelling and bureaucracy for you!
