`Each chapter flows well and holds the reader's interest. The book is suitable for learners and experienced practitioners' Keith Hurst, Leeds University
I have found this book interesting and relevant to my students taking the Professional experience module. It is expected that their research proposal (which will begin after their internship) would emanate from their experience as interns and would focus on identifying care and management gaps within healthcare organisations and propose evidence based interventions through action research. This book will support them in developing strategies to achieve this.
For those working in an ever changing working environment this provides easy reading to help plan changes within the workplace. Useful for most practitioners in a leadership position
Excellent textbook for health care professionals/students who want to manage change in the clinical setting. I would recommend this to 3rd year students.
Useful text book for any health practitioner who wants to manage change in the workplace.
Excellent resource for level 5 care leadership, also used with my own level 7 work. Good links to healthcare.
Will recommend this book as extra information in the course Leadership and Innovation. Course for master students in nursery.
enjoyable read, reflects on research amnd evidence. allittle in depth for the novice nurse but relevant for senoir staff.
This book is very easy to follow and encourages the reader to see the relationship between research and change management.
It would be applicable to both pre registration healthcare students and post registration
A well written book and very readable. Would suggest that this is more suitable for final year degree or post-graduate studies where a base level of understanding is in place to really benefit from this text.
Recommended for Masters students as the depth is of the right level.
This book is easy to follow and not too complex. I would therefore recommend it to any pre registration student on a healthcare course, especially those undertaking a leadership and management module
A good well detailed book about the management of change which demonstrates application of change theories and leadership. This would be a recommended text for students at post graduate level or undergraduates who are exploring this issue in greater depth in their final level of study.
A good text which will be added to our post-registration BSc nursing programme resources and added to the reading list within the Post-graduate prospectus.
I think this book will be useful for students, particularly the latter chapters. the information on the management and history of the NHS is useful, but not essential to their program of study, so it will be recommended but not esential.
A well structured text that provides a useful background and insight into managing change in the complex world of healthcare (NHS).
Gillie Bolton's text is an accessible read that helps guide practitioners through the challenging world of reflective practice. This new edition is supported by a number of practical examples from practitioners.
Very useful to those students using an action research cycle to audit their practice from non prescriber to prescriber
An informative book very relevant for management in healthcare. There are some good examples of projects using action research which allows the student to have an awareness in how to manage change processess
We would recommended this book to all students to support them in identifying and instigating a change within their practice area.
