Basic Concepts of Health Care Human Resource Management, Second Edition is a comprehensive overview of the role of Human Resource Management (HRM) in all aspects of healthcare management. Beginning with a survey of HRM, from its beginnings to present-day trends, the text moves on to cover state and federal healthcare laws, codes of ethics, staffing organisations, training and development, employee relations, and long-term planning.
Each section focuses on a key area of HRM, with individual chapters providing support materials and resources for personnel. The text is designed to be equally accessible and useful for both established human resource departments in large-scale organisations and general managers of smaller organisations with no specialised HR department.
Basic Concepts of Health Care Human Resource Management provides the essential tools and strategies for HRM personnel to become empowered custodians of change in any healthcare organisation. Taking into account the increasing diversity of patients and employees, the effects of technology and globalisation on healthcare delivery, the credentialing of health care providers, and the measurement of labour productivity, and much more, this text is an essential resource for HRM students and practitioners alike.
The Second Edition offers updated data throughout as well as new chapters on employee diversity, labour productivity measurement, and credentialing health care providers.
