An emphasis on human resources ("people") management offers effective strategies for recruiting, selecting, and retaining the best clinicians and support professionals in this increasingly competitive field. Case examples based on the authors' own experiences bring concepts to life. Engaging exercises - including group discussions, role-playing scenarios, and short answer - help you strengthen your critical thinking skills.
