✏To Improve Health and Health Care Book Summary : Praise for previous volumes of To Improve Health and Health Care: "The particular strength of the book is the critical nature of the articles. These are not glossy renditions of the good deeds of the foundation; rather they examine in depth both what went right and what went wrong with the projects the foundation sponsored. Anyone with an interest in improving health care in America will want to know what can be done, and perhaps even more importantly, what cannot be done even by an independent institution with substantial resources to invest in new ideas." -- Jeremy Holtzman, MD MS, University of Minnesota Medical School, Doody Publishing (2002). "This is a useful guide to both the grant seeker and the planner of similar projects who address health and healthcare needs in communities." -- Ann H. Cary, PhD, MPH, RN, George Mason University, (Doody Publishing, 1999.) Since 1972, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has been the nation's largest philanthropy devoted exclusively to health. To further its mission of improving the health and health care of all Americans, the Foundation strives to foster innovation, develop ideas, disseminate information, and enable committed people to devote their energies to improving the nation's well-being. As part of the Foundation's efforts to inform the public, To Improve Health and Health Care, the on-going anthology of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, provides an in-depth look into the programs it funds. Written for policy makers and practitioners, as well as interested members of the public, the series offers valuable lessons for leaders and educators developing plans for the coming years. This volume of the anthology covers Improving Quality of Care, Vulnerable Populations, Combating Substance Abuse, and other areas of concern

✏Ethics Law and Aging Review Volume 7 Book Summary : Health care and human service professionals often experience anxiety about potential adverse legal repercussions for actions taken or not taken in the course of caring for patients or clients. In this volume, professionally distinguished and diverse authors discuss both the real and perceived legal liability context within which health and human service delivery to older persons takes place. The benefits and costs of litigious, legislative, and regulatory interventions on the quality of care and the quality of life for recipients of geriatric services is evaluated. Most important, chapters present suggestions for ways to effectively reduce or manage legal risks and anxieties while improving patient care. This volume fills a gap in the literature by providing careful and accurate analysis of legal issues rarely translated into practical and useful advice for health care and human service professionals.

✏Resilient Health Care Volume 2 Book Summary : Health systems everywhere are expected to meet increasing public and political demands for accessible, high-quality care. Policy-makers, managers, and clinicians use their best efforts to improve efficiency, safety, quality, and economic viability. One solution has been to mimic approaches that have been shown to work in other domains, such as quality management, lean production, and high reliability. In the enthusiasm for such solutions, scant attention has been paid to the fact that health care as a multifaceted system differs significantly from most traditional industries. Solutions based on linear thinking in engineered systems do not work well in complicated, multi-stakeholder non-engineered systems, of which health care is a leading example. A prerequisite for improving health care and making it more resilient is that the nature of everyday clinical work be well understood. Yet the focus of the majority of policy or management solutions, as well as that of accreditation and regulation, is work as it ought to be (also known as ‘work-as-imagined’). The aim of policy-makers and managers, whether the priority is safety, quality, or efficiency, is therefore to make everyday clinical work - or work-as-done - comply with work-as-imagined. This fails to recognise that this normative conception of work is often oversimplified, incomplete, and outdated. There is therefore an urgent need to better understand everyday clinical work as it is done. Despite the common focus on deviations and failures, it is undeniable that clinical work goes right far more often than it goes wrong, and that we only can make it better if we understand how this happens. This second volume of Resilient Health Care continues the line of thinking of the first book, but takes it further through a range of chapters from leading international thinkers on resilience and health care. Where the first book provided the rationale and basic concepts of RHC, the Resilience of Everyday Clinical Work breaks new ground by analysing everyday work situations in primary, secondary, and tertiary care to identify and describe the fundamental strategies that clinicians everywhere have developed and use with a fluency that belies the demands to be resolved and the dilemmas to be balanced. Because everyday clinical work is at the heart of resilience, it is essential to appreciate how it functions, and to understand its characteristics.
