In a new review, Doody's Review Service called McLaughlin and Kaluzny's Continuous Quality Improvement In Health Care, Fourth Edition by William A. Sollecito and Julie K. Johnson "one of the best, most comprehensive and user-friendly books...about quality improvement and its application to the field of healthcare."
Read more excerpts from reviewer, Elizabeth Melzer, MD, from the University of South Florida College of Medicine,
"This is a comprehensive yet easy to process review and roadmap for understanding, initiating, studying, and spreading continuous quality improvement in healthcare.
[It addresses] new challenges due to the changes in the U.S. healthcare system and the interdisciplinary approach to sharing quality improvement tools and methods. These are worthy objectives, as the drive is to understand the role, importance, and ability to perform quality improvement (QI) in healthcare in order to deliver better care to customers (patients) while ideally lowering costs. This book provides an excellent foundation of QI methodology and addresses QI from multiple different and interdisciplinary angles to provide a comprehensive and useful manual to enact positive changes in healthcare.
This is the one of the best, most comprehensive and user-friendly books I have read about quality improvement and its application to the field of healthcare. The rapidly changing healthcare environment due to legislation, economic pressures, and changes in expectations for quality care necessitated a new edition to cover these emerging challenges."
