This definitive resource offers those working in the field of mental health services administration fundamental information on delivery of care systems from an organizational perspective. It examines the principles of leadership and management in the field and sets the practice of psychiatric administration and management in the context of today's rapidly evolving health care environment. Mental Health Care Administration will be especially useful for those clinicians who have assumed administrative roles, as well as for those administrators trained exclusively in programs emphasizing management and leadership, to understand the complexities of clinical skills and the delicacies of therapeutic issues in a mental health care setting.
In a series of succinct chapters each dedicated to a separate issue, Dr. Rodenhauser and his contributors cover the current economic environment of psychiatric practice, mental health systems, marketing, review mechanisms and regulatory agencies, mental health law, financial management, organizational behavior and human resources, and outcomes assessment and improvement.
