Your ability to build, grow, and maintain relationships will be the key determinant to your future success. These relationships are all around you and will include management colleagues, clinicians, payers, patients, regulators, legislators, and uncounted other stakeholders.
The second theme is that of organizational excellence. To quote my friend Quint Studer, people in the healthcare business are driven by purpose, worthwhile work, and making a difference. In this time of continuous environmental change some might even call it turbulence , what role do you have in creating and sustaining organizations that are truly excellent? For that matter, what does excellence mean to you and to those around you?
Excellence represents the north star that guides the actions of the organization and those within. This textbook will be an invaluable guide as you seek to create the map that will guide you in your healthcare management career.
Our job is to create and sustain the systems that allow dedicated and skilled clinicians to deliver the safest and highest quality patient care possible.
I congratulate you on your decision to become a leader in the field and a hero to your community.
Leonard H. The idea for this book came about in October, , when Nancy Shanks and I sat down for java and breakfast and began to talk about the field of healthcare management, the role of educators, and the courses we were teaching. When the conversation turned to our introductory courses, we both said almost in unison: I m not happy with the text I m using.
We were unhappy because the books that were available were either too advanced or too simple and had too few learning tools for students and professors. In addition, there was a dearth of case studies related to healthcare management in a wide variety of settings. As we emptied a pot of coffee, becoming giddy with caffeine, we took turns telling each other: You should write a textbook! At last, we agreed that we should write a textbook together.
We turned to our colleagues for their collective expertise and conducted an online survey of 37 healthcare management educators. Much like Goldilocks, our colleagues, too, had yet to find a textbook that was Just right! Like us, they found that many of the healthcare management textbooks were: too dense and over the head of the student; contained no appropriate case studies; too expensive; and didn t contain enough graphs, tables, charts, or figures.
The same survey enabled us to identify which topic areas were critical for an introductory textbook in healthcare management. After we shared the results of the survey with our colleagues, we sent out a call for chapter authors and case studies.
Master teachers and researchers with expertise in each topic stepped forward and offered to assist us with this exciting project. Each contributor knew exactly what did or did not work in the classroom and was eager for a student-friendly, professorfriendly textbook.
We are grateful to all our authors for their insightful, well-written chapters and realistic case studies. Without them, this dream textbook would not have become a reality. Undergraduate students in healthcare management, nursing, public health, and allied health programs will find the writing to be engaging.
In addition, students in graduate programs in discipline-specific areas, such as business administration, nursing, pharmacy, occupational therapy, public administration, and public health will find the materials theory-based and readily applicable to real-world settings. Along with lively writing and contents critical for a foundation in healthcare management, this book has the following features: Learning objectives and discussion questions for each chapter; Instructors resources online for each chapter, including PowerPoint slides, sample syllabus, and test items; Fifteen case studies in a wide variety of settings, in an assortment of healthcare management topics; and, A case study guide, with rubrics for evaluation of student performance, enabling professors at every level of experience to hit the ground running on that first day of classes.
We hope you enjoy this book as much as we enjoyed bringing it together. May your classrooms be bursting with excited discussions, and may your coffee cup always be full.
Shanks, PhD Metropolitan State College of Denver 21 Acknowledgments This book is the result of a 3-year process that involved the majority of the United States leaders in excellence in undergraduate healthcare management education.
We are deeply grateful to the Association of University Programs in Health Administration AUPHA faculty, members, and staff for all the support, both in time and expertise, in developing the proposal for this textbook and for providing us with excellent feedback at every step of the way.
In the beginning, Nancy and I met over coffee at a meeting: the AUPHA Undergraduate Workshop in Nashville in October of After consultation with our colleagues and friends, we decided to launch a survey to delineate the key topics to be covered and the deficiencies in the marketplace this book needed to address. The PDs, in turn, were generous and giving with their time and suggestions.
Their guidance enabled us to avoid the beginner authors dilemma of writing the right book for the wrong audience. Thanks, thanks, and thanks again to our Undergraduate colleagues!
Louis Rubino, Chair of the AUPHA Undergraduate Program Committee, gave us a bully pulpit by providing us with time on the Undergraduate Program agenda to present the findings of our survey, to refine our proposal, and to get the word out that this book was coming. When we asked for contributors for both chapters and case studies, we were overwhelmed with the level of responsiveness from our colleagues.
Tolerance of differences is fundamental in the relationship between professional health workers and users, and, therefore, the practice of listening needs to be developed considering the situational singularity of each user.
This will make it possible to expand identification of needs and potentials for practice guided by comprehensiveness. The proposed dimensions refer to meeting health care needs, according to the precepts of the SUS, since they seek to discuss the organization of practices as part of an articulated health care system, resulting in greater satisfaction of workers and users, in relational dynamics, without losing sight of political and technical aspects which underpin the health care system.
When cutting to the cores of nursing skills 19 , dilemmas are present regarding practice. On the one hand, intervention is focused on managing therapy by nursing staff, with the tensions inherent in the hierarchical process and relationships between people and, on the other hand, requires articulation with the various nuclei of knowledge and practices to exercise the role of a collective worker with a comprehensive and interdisciplinary character.
When the institutionalization of nursing is recovered, a retreat of intervention in the domestic, private and family sphere is observed, to a movement of insertion in the public space, even in the 19th century, with the re-structuring of health care systems and the resizing of practices in the national context, with a predominance in the global scenario, still of private acts geared to individual care This panorama is based on scientific rationality, aligned with technologies that emerge from the productive processes that lead to capitalist society.
However, due to the fact that nursing adopts care as the essence of its work, it cannot dispense with intersubjective and humanized relationships that permeate encounters with users and families in the daily practice of health care services.
This, without losing sight of other important elements such as beliefs, gender relations, religion and ethics, among others, seeking interface with scientific rationale. That is, humanized and therapeutic encounters are needed, articulated by teamwork projects.
Thus, care can be placed as a symbol of the essence of the field of health care, that should be a place that cares for individuals and the public, in the act of its production and how care is performed, directed, which, after all, is the purpose, if they are going to meet the world of the users with receptivity of actions and services provided. In this sense, one of the dilemmas experienced by nursing resides in how care is performed on a daily basis: fragmented, focused on specific aggravations and centered on health care professionals.
One of the main challenges is the construction of new therapeutic bases to ensure comprehensive care, as opposed to a technical model that is individualized and focused on disease, biological knowledge and individual professional action. It aims to achieve health lastly, which extrapolates the normative horizon established by biomedicine, of a techno-scientific character, in which it relates only to morphofunctional normality.
Health is expressed as a value of contrafact and intersubjective character that will never be complete, because it depends on the relentless and continuous search for ideas of well-being while one is alive, i.
The complexity of the challenge is to assume the production of comprehensive care as inherent to health professions and as a consequence of nursing practices, which should align with the principle of comprehensiveness, defended in the premise of the SUS. This seems to be one of the great dilemmas: its precise definition and its operationalization.
However, these dilemmas do not reduce its importance. The legitimacy in producing comprehensive care constitutes a fundamental mechanism to strengthen the other two principles, universality and equity. For this purpose, it is necessary to think in two directions: a policy which extends the commitment of governments and managers of the system in the formulation of guidelines that enable the redesign of financing and the model of management and health care. In this perspective, the increase in supply of services would supercede bureaucratic and productivist criteria by overcoming the repressed demand for health care services 6 at the same time when the intermunicipal agreement would be resignified with other levels of procurement; another technique, which seeks to revitalize the capacity of health care workers in defense of a health care model that values quality of care in a manner that is articulate, interactive, interdisciplinary and committed to the social determination of the health-disease process of people who require services in the SUS network.
The idea of connectivity is defended, valuing the specific knowledge of each profession, while establishing commitments to collective work. In summary, to provide comprehensive nursing care, it is necessary to recover the dimensions mentioned earlier: embracement, bonding, accountability and responsiveness to the demands of users and families, with ethical and social commitment.
Nursing cannot exercise care that is disjointed from other practices and the organizational context of the health care system, at all levels of technological density in the SUS network. These challenges point to possibilities of interconnection in the thinking about and deploying of health care, demarcated by policy, management, technical procedures and collective interaction in the act of care production.
This study reaffirms that the production of care must be the focus of all health care work, bearing in mind that intervention by technological action of each profession goes beyond the core of isolated knowledge, as is the case of nursing which, connected to other professional practices, can enter new territories of knowledge and practices that function by means of relational technologies.
The field of relations is fundamental for the production of care that improves the health of users by means of light technologies 5 , in which intercessor relationships are established aimed at embracement, bonding and accountability. Changing the way health care work is produced is no easy task, and an inversion of logic that has been operational to the present is needed.
This should take place in the actions of all the subjects involved in the process managers, health care workers and users. Health services need to assume one of its most important tenets: to promote intervention focused on the user, without devaluing workers, that is capable of enabling autonomy of individuals in their way of living, without losing sight of the dimension of care that should be present in any act.
Nursing is assuming significant spaces in care management, both at the micro and macro social levels. However, the spaces occupied have still not turned into spaces of change of practices, because the social determinations and historical contexts that influenced the way nursing exercised and exercises the care process cannot be denied 2. The management model is bureaucratized, vertical, systematized in tasks and production of services. Finally, challenges arise from new forms of organization of work in a modern and competitive world.
Nursing needs to foster care that is more horizontal, seeking interfaces with other professionals and with other practices to rebuild its social role, seeking innovation and a balance among the technical, political and organizational dimensions.

Experience of taking care of children exposed to HIV: a trajectory of expectations. After all, health care professionals who actively coparticipate in the health problems of people, listen and talk, establish accountability in two ways, providing care - and inexorably establish embracement and vice versa 6.
