Recent changes in medical roles and responsibilities have raised the profile of Operating Department Practitioners (ODPs). The volume of knowledge is vast, and exams must be taken working towards statutory registration. Core Topics in Operating Department Practice: Leadership and Management provides comprehensive information on leadership and management issues encountered by healthcare staff working in the operating department. Topics covered include corporate governance, the development of advanced roles, management of cultural diversity and the influence of organisational culture in the theatre suite. The clear and concise format is ideally suited to study, qualification and for continued reference during practice. Written by specialists with a wealth of knowledge and experience, and incorporating problem-based learning using case studies, this will be essential reading for ODPs and theatre nurses worldwide.
