Medical Leadership by Jill Aylott (Editor); Jeff Perring (Editor); Ann Chapman (Editor); Ahmed Nassef (Editor)Today's health care systems need doctors and consultants to act as leaders, within the multi-disciplinary team, in addition to carrying out their clinical role. This book identifies the key elements of successful leadership through 'medically led' service development and systems transformation and shows how this benefits patient care, particularly when patients become partners in the process. The authors provide a conceptual framework of medical leadership and a set of scientific methods and tools that make a significant contribution to advancing quality and transforming services in healthcare. On top of this, they present analytical tools which medical professionals can use to support their own improvement or system transformation strategy, including ways of measuring improvement and the returns on investment of medical leadership. Woven throughout the book are real-life case studies from medical leaders across the world, providing students with valuable practical insights. Chapter summaries and reflections are provided to support learning.　 Medical Leadership will be essential reading for students on medical and clinical leadership courses internationally as well as for all practising doctors, consultants and General Practitioners.
