5.0 out of 5 stars Far more engrossing than the usual textbook, June 3, 2012
This review is from: Understanding Patient Safety, Second Edition (Paperback)
This book is extremely well written, engrossing, engaging, and comprehensive. It covers all the important topics, but unlike most textbooks it's hard to put it down once you get started. The book is also up to the minute, with some of the most talked-about new studies incorporated into the text. One powerful element is the inclusion of patient stories at the beginning of each chapter, which alone transforms this from a dry textbook plow-through experience into a gripping read that will change the way you think about health care delivery. And look out for the zingers. Did you know Alfred Hitchcock may have something to teach us about how we measure patient safety?

Patient safety is a highly complex topic and fairly new to academia, so it's great to have a guide like this to sort out the key issues, categorize the research, and (through the patient and clinician stories) really understand the enormity of what's at stake.
