Abstract

Managing Care in Practice helps managers to identify the knowledge and build the skills for managing people and other resources required for effective care provision. It addresses the practical dilemmas of managing in care settings by developing the model of practice-led management across a range of common activities. It provides ideas and models of what can work in practice from relevant theories, practice examples and the lived experience of social care managers. Including contributions from leading academics, researchers, managers and practitioners, the text is informed by consultations with service users and managers.
This core text demonstrates that the diverse and complex environments of management in social care require responsive and active engagement by the manager who wishes to maximise the constraints for everyday practice.
