The result of a project to develop short courses to help health care administrators and supervisors in developing practical, up-to-date management skills, this instructional workbook provides information and exercises applicable to on-the-job situations. Unit I covers the following leadership considerations: self-awareness, time management, problem solving, accounting principles, and grantsmanship. Next, Unit II focuses on communications, peer relationships, medical terminology, conducting a meeting, and public relations. After Unit III considers personnel considerations of recruitment, labor laws, job descriptions, motivation, and evaluation, Unit IV stresses the skills related to delegation of responsibility, personnel and conflict management, stress management, and accident prevention. Finally, Unit V investigates management theories and functions, objectives and planning, program evaluation, change strategies, major challenges facing health care administrators in the 1980s, and computers and other technological advances. Each unit includes: (1) a statement of overall unit objectives; (2) specific objectives for each topic; (3) suggested instructor and participant activities; (4) a list of the instructional materials included; (5) a list of references; (6) information sheets which define terms, present topics, and recommend activities and strategies for implementation in class and on the job; (7) transparency masters; (8) assignment sheets; and (9) a review test.
