Leadership is liberating, and the development of leadership in health care organisations is vital.

In this timely and exciting textbook, Christopher Johns addresses the most vital aspects of health care development and education, and reveals the tensions of becoming a leader within health care organizations. Being able to understand and work towards resolving these tensions is essential in becoming an effective leader. To be an effective leader, however, requires an awareness and acceptance of circumstances that is best termed ‘mindfulness’.

Equipped with the theoretical and practical-know-how to drive forward health reform and ensure quality, this book will enable health care students and practitioners to become reflective and genuinely mindful leaders. 

Christopher Johns is Professor of Nursing, University of Bedfordshire and Visiting Professor, Christ Church, Canterbury University, UK.
