Organizing Health Services, Hardback Book

Organizing Health Services Hardback

Edited by Graeme Currie, Martin Kitchener

Part of the Organizing & Managing Public Services series


Convergence between models of public and private sector management in recent years has turned the research of public services organizations into a fertile and expanding field.

This four-volume set, part of the new Organizing and Managing Public Services series, brings together a collection of keynote papers spanning research and practice across health services worldwide, bridging the gap between organization studies and literature more specific to the sociology of health and illness, social policy and health services research.

With papers selected through a qualitative, systematic process of peer review, this collection is an essential resource for libraries, and will be an invaluable aid to teachers and lecturers in structuring courses and referring their students to the key literature. " Organizing and Managing Public Services is a series of first-class reference collections, bringing a management and organization studies focus to a field which uses the disciplines extensively - the public sector. " Each multivolume set brings together not just the papers with importance to the public service in question, but on management organization studies as a whole, and is compiled by a renowned editor or editorial team with original essays outlining the state of the discipline and presenting a rationale for the selection. " This series is designed to be an essential reference collection for university libraries worldwide with programs in management and organization studies.
