New release - Effective Leadership
The Towards Outstanding series offers essential resources for health and social care services regulated by the Care Quality Commission, built around the 'five questions' that CQC inspectors use (are services safe, effective, caring, responsive, and well-led?). The titles in the series show how a mindset of getting the basics right then applying finishing touches can allow any service to move towards an 'Outstanding' rating. They also offer a guide for services outside of England and subject to a different, but similar regulatory framework.
Effective Leadership in Health and Social Care takes a close-up look at the 'well-led' aspect of assessment. The CQC is moving towards a common approach framework and changing the way it regulates, with a more risk focused approach being developed and far greater use of data. Leaders and managers of regulated services need to understand how to ensure that the five areas are delivered well and--just as importantly--how they will be assessed.
The book series is available directly from Pavilion. There are currently five books in the series with more in the pipeline.
We are also working with Pavilion learn to develop online courses based around the book series.
The four current titles are intended to have wide appeal for those involved in health and social care settings. They are based around the English regulatory framework, but the main text and workbook are relevant to anyone wanting to understand what health and social care should look like. They are certainly relevant to students studying for health or social care qualifications.
A book on leadership with stories from throughout our life, (mainly from within education settings) aimed to support people in managing the often conflicting demands of work and personal life.
