Managing Diversity and Inequality in Health

This volume focuses specifically on the importance of managing diversity in today's health services. It examines what is meant by managing diversity and outlines the nature of current inequalities in the UK, and their implications for health care professionals. A practical and practice focussed guide to developing the management skills and understanding required, this book provides an accessible mix of theory and practice, and a unique emphasis on real life applications. These are drawn from all sectors of healthcare, acute and primary, as well as the private and independent sectors. It explicitly and realistically explores the interface between management skills and knowledge and quality, fit-for-purpose practice.
