"Lab Dynamics is a book about the challenges to doing science and dealing with the individuals involved, including oneself. The authors, a scientist and a psychotherapist, draw on principles of group and behavioral psychology but speak to scientists in their own language about their own experiences. They offer in-depth, practical advice, real-life examples, and exercises tailored to scientific and technical workplaces on topics as diverse as conflict resolution, negotiation, dealing with supervision, working with competing peers, and making the transition from academia to industry." "This is a uniquely valuable contribution to the scientific literature, on a subject of direct importance to lab heads, postdocs, and students. It is also required reading for senior staff concerned about improving efficiency and effectiveness in academic and industrial research."--BOOK JACKET
Edited by Robert Jones and Fiona Jenkins, this book describes how allied health professions (AHPs) relate to today's NHS, and how they themselves are organised as well as covering key management challenges currently facing the profession.
This guide helps undergraduate medics and junior doctors, as well as experienced doctors taking on new managerial responsibilities, to become effective leaders and managers by introducing both management and clinical leadership theory and practice, and the challenges facing medical managers in today's NHS. Despite growing recognition of the importance of leadership and management to doctors in meeting their clinical responsibilities, training in medical schools and foundation years remains patchy. The book explores how management and leadership can enhance health professionals' individual and organisational effectiveness, job satisfaction, and careers. Scenarios draw from the authors' real-life tales, while accompanying exercises encourage readers to reflect on their own experience. Fully referenced, and digestible both in full and as a reference resource, this is vital reading for medical students, junior doctors, and those who teach and train them. It will also prove useful to experienced doctors taking on new managerial responsibilities. `Clinical leadership across the NHS may take many forms ranging from frontline leaders who provide excellent service through a spectrum of clinical innovators and academics, to those who provide leadership through their professional bodies or through managerial involvement at various levels in their employing institution. This admirable book is aimed at young clinicians and invites them, through a series of vignettes and issues coupled with practical theory, to enter the world of management. I hope that everyone who reads this book will accept that invitation, because it is only through effective service design, management and change that we can practise medicine in the way and in the environment that is best for both patients and clinicians.' Professor Sir Bruce Keogh NHS Medical Director
