Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"

This book provides health care leaders with basic concepts for transforming their care delivery system into one that is patient- and family-centered and built on the power of relationships.

Relationship-Based Careprovides a practical framework for addressing current challenges and is intended to benefit health care organizations in which commitment to care and service to patients is strong and focused. It will also prove useful in organizations searching for solutions to complex struggles with patient, staff and physician dissatisfaction; difficulty recruiting and retaining and developing talented staff members; conflicted work relationships and related quality issues. The book is the result of 25 years of experience of Creative Health Care Management, a nursing management consulting firm founded by Marie Manthey.

I find the book a good resource and full of valuable information. It isn't a book to read in a short while, as I found the information well researched and needing time to process the information.
I would suggest this book for educators, administrators, management, resource persons. Very helpful information.

Format: Paperback
This book is a fine collaborative discourse defending institutional nursing and institutional quality assurance.
The expanding and changing roles and boundaries of nursing are noted. The changing Doctor Nurse game, shared governance, evidence based practice, self directed education, and decentralization are noted. As a previous reviewer has stated, we have heard this all before.
As Dr Lawrence Savett suggests, We may learn a lot about nursing from this book. The authors suggest we need a lot of consultation so that top heavy administrations can get it right. Terrific book well documented. It could be noted that current news reports that the British are decentralizing their top heavy health administration. As a medical provider (Nurse Practitioner), I think our system seems to need real change including less administrative cost, less constraint on important care, more collaboration, more truth in advertising for pharmaceuticals, and then the "primacy of caring" may prevail.

Information is easy to read and can be read in sections which pertain to what you are doing and still be clear. An excellent resource for a hospital trying to make changes in a holistic, caring manner, toward staff while enhancing patient care.

This model of healthcare is the ONLY one that will work in the current evolution of healthcare and third party payor reimbursement. Ms. Koloroutis does an eloquent job in discussing the importance of holistic care and transforming our current aggressive Western ideology with the mind, body, spirit and emotions attention so vital to healing the complete individual. A must read for nurses!
