    The recently published Connecting Care for Patients: Interdisciplinary Care Transitions and Collaboration  by Barbara Katz is already garnering rave reviews. According to Dorothy Baker, PhD, FNP, MN, RN, Senior Research Scientist, Geriatrics at Yale School of Medicine,

    “The text should serve as a 'go to' guide for clinicians with sufficient clinical experience to witness gaps in care and question how the whole system operates. Given the breadth of perspectives and literature cited, it could serve as a guide for many disciplines to examine the situation that exists and ponder how things might be improved to the benefit of those in their care.”
