Essentials of Managing Public Health OrganizationsAuthors: James A Johnson, Kimberly S Davey
Written for undergraduate students in public health, community health, and a range of other health disciplines, as well as beginning managers and supervisors working in public health, Essentials of Managing Public Health Organisations is a concise, yet comprehensive text that uniquely focuses on managing public health organisations by addressing key management topics, processes, and emerging issues.
Beginning with an overview of public health and key public health organisations, the text moves onto explain public health management fundamentals and functions– from planning and decision making, organising and managing change, to staffing, leading, budgeting, ethics, and more.
