Leadership in Health Services Management provides all healthcare professionals with the information necessary to lead with commitment and strive towards a clear vision of health for all. It guides readers through crucially important issues such as vision, strategic thinking, confidence, negotiation and knowledge management in health services.

Now in its third edition, this book has been updated to contain original research on the topic of self-leadership, a theme that is interwoven throughout the text. In addition, there is a focus on the application of leadership theories for postgraduate readers studying for a Master’s certificate in nursing management or tutored Master’s degree according to the new guidelines of the SAQA qualifications for postgraduate studies. In all new South African curricula and programmes, the research component has been prioritised and therefore this edition features a chapter on research proposals.
