​Unter der ebenso schlichten wie provokativen Überschrift „Regieren“ sollen in diesem Band Beiträge zum aktuellen Verständnis der Herausforderungen einer Ausrichtung von politischer Herrschaft auf die zielgerichtete Veränderung der Gesellschaft versammelt werden. In einem ersten Teil geht es um normativ-theoretische Grundlagenfrage des modernen Regierens. Im Mittelpunkt stehen hier Grundbegrifflichkeiten der Konzeptualisierung von Regieren sowie Fragen des Zusammenhangs von Vorstellungen des Regierens mit legitimatorischen Konzepten moderner Demokratien. In einem zweiten Teil werden Herausforderungen des Regierens in unterschiedlichen Pra-xiskontexten verortet und hinsichtlich der Verfügbarkeit institutioneller und prozessualer Ressourcen diskutiert. Es geht dabei um die Rolle von Beteiligung für effektives Regieren, Geld und Wissen als Ressourcen sowie die unterschiedlichen Ebenen des Regierens. Im dritten Teil liegt der Schwerpunkt auf internationalen Erfahrungen, die in vergleichenden und Fallstudien-Designs analytisch fruchtbar gemacht werden. Hierbei werden angel-sächsische, skandinavische, mittel-, süd- und osteuropäische, aber auch chinesische Fälle diskutiert. Beiträge von Rainer Schmalz-Bruns, Frank Nullmeier, Thomas Saretzki, Jürgen R. Grote, Heidrun Abromeit, Friedbert W.

Self-leadership in social work

Reflections from practice

This book is a call for confident, skilled and knowledgeable practice in social work. The current managerialist agenda has restricted judgement and the exercise of discretion in the profession, and, more damagingly, has played down the social justice components of social work, as well as the responsibilities for therapeutic and change-orientated interventions. This book explores how, through strong self-leadership, social workers can both explain and demonstrate how social work can achieve positive change. Offering a fresh and innovative view on leadership for social workers, managers of social services and social work students at all levels, the book identifies tactics and strategies to provide leadership both within a team and in senior positions.

This unique book brings together, for the first time, advocates and critics of the personalisation agenda in English social care services to debate key issues relating to personalisation. Perspectives from practitioners, service users and academics come together to give an account of the practicalities and controversies associated with the implementation of personalised approaches. The conclusion examines how to make sense of the divergent accounts presented, asking if there is a value-based approach to person-centred care that all sides share. Written in a lively and accessible way, practitioners and academics in health and social care, social work, public policy and social policy will appreciate the interplay of rival arguments and the way that ambiguities in the care debate play out as policy ideas take programmatic form.

There will always be a need for professionals to work collaboratively if they are to provide the highest standard of care. Interprofessional working encourages practitioners to understand the roles of other professionals and to learn from each other, as well as from service users and carers, to ensure the full benefit of this collaboration is realised. It is an essential element of both education and practice for today's professionals. Interprofessional Working in Health and Social Care discusses the rationale, skills and conditions required for interprofessional working. In addition, it provides an overview of the roles and perspectives of different health professionals across a broad range of expertise: education, housing, medicine, midwifery, nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, police, probation, radiography, social work and youth work. The second edition: • Offers a broad variety of case studies from a range of fi elds and settings. • Includes a new chapter dedicated to interprofessional working with service users and carers. • Looks forward, offering brand new content on new and emerging roles such as specialist paramedics and approved mental health practitioners. This book is a valuable tool for students and practitioners across the health and social care discipline, employing engaging case studies and reflective activities to support learning about interprofessional and interagency collaboration. Erratum: please note the term 'Approved Mental Health Practitioner' has been used in error, instead of 'Approved Mental Health Professional'. This will be corrected as soon as possible on the next reprint and the e-book version has been corrected.

High Quality Care for All

NHS Next Stage Review Final Report

Publisher: The Stationery Office

ISBN: 9780101743228

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 84

This review incorporates the views and visions of 2,000 clinicians and other health and social care professionals from every NHS region in England, and has been developed in discussion with patients, carers and the general public. The changes proposed are locally-led, patient-centred and clinically driven. Chapter 2 identifies the challenges facing the NHS in the 21st century: ever higher expectations; demand driven by demographics as people live longer; health in an age of information and connectivity; the changing nature of disease; advances in treatment; a changing health workplace. Chapter 3 outlines the proposals to deliver high quality care for patients and the public, with an emphasis on helping people to stay healthy, empowering patients, providing the most effective treatments, and keeping patients as safe as possible in healthcare environments. The importance of quality in all aspects of the NHS is reinforced in chapter 4, and must be understood from the perspective of the patient's safety, experience in care received and the effectiveness of that care. Best practice will be widely promoted, with a central role for the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) in expanding national standards. This will bring clarity to the high standards expected and quality performance will be measured and published. The review outlines the need to put frontline staff in control of this drive for quality (chapter 5), with greater freedom to use their expertise and skill and decision-making to find innovative ways to improve care for patients. Clinical and managerial leadership skills at the local level need further development, and all levels of staff will receive support through education and training (chapter 6). The review recommends the introduction of an NHS Constitution (chapter 7). The final chapter sets out the means of implementation.

Die Macht der Gewohnheit: Warum wir tun, was wir tun

Seit kurzem versuchen Hirnforscher, Verhaltenspsychologen und Soziologen gemeinsam neue Antworten auf eine uralte Frage zu finden: Warum tun wir eigentlich, was wir tun? Was genau prägt unsere Gewohnheiten? Anhand zahlreicher Beispiele aus der Forschung wie dem Alltag erzählt Charles Duhigg von der Macht der Routine und kommt dem Mechanismus, aber auch den dunklen Seiten der Gewohnheit auf die Spur. Er erklärt, warum einige Menschen es schaffen, über Nacht mit dem Rauchen aufzuhören (und andere nicht), weshalb das Geheimnis sportlicher Höchstleistung in antrainierten Automatismen liegt und wie sich die Anonymen Alkoholiker die Macht der Gewohnheit zunutze machen. Nicht zuletzt schildert er, wie Konzerne Millionen ausgeben, um unsere Angewohnheiten für ihre Zwecke zu manipulieren. Am Ende wird eines klar: Die Macht von Gewohnheiten prägt unser Leben weit mehr, als wir es ahnen.
