    SAGE Publishing continues to grow its teaching case collection, SAGE Business Cases, across the business and management discipline while also focusing in on key areas. The Healthcare Management collection within SAGE Business Cases will highlight operations management, finance, economics, and ethics in the healthcare industry. Cases may be real or fictional, and should explore dilemmas faced by healthcare providers and/or related firms such as pharmaceutical companies, insurers, and medical device suppliers.

    SAGE is pleased to offer case authors:

    • Double-blind peer review of your case and teaching notes

    Have you written a case that you currently use in your classroom? Do you have an idea or a rough draft of a case? Bring it to SAGE and we’ll work with you to develop your idea and ready it for the global classroom.
