Description - Textbook of Administrative Psychiatry by John A. Talbott
Today's practice of psychiatric administration is totally different from that in past years because of the vast changes sweeping the health care and behavioural health care sectors. This textbook provides the practitioner and student of administration in behavioural health care with an overview of the evolving behavioural health system. It also discusses core and new administrative psychiatry concepts, new roles for behavioural health players, how selected behavioural health systems are changing, the trend toward integrated systems, law and ethics, and future issues for administrative psychiatry. This second edition seeks to reflect the changes that have taken place since the first edition was published. Offering in-depth discussions, this volume features new chapters on topics such as prisons, continuous quality improvement, and the changing roles of professionals, family members, and consumers. Recognized experts contribute approaches on organizational theory, leadership, planning, training, information systems, and ethics and law.
Also addressed are topics such as behavioural health network establishment and maintenance, staffing, veterans health-care facilities, capitated financing, behavioural health outcomes, and confidentiality -all from a managed care perspective.
