Bookworms: Health Care/Improvement

Non-fiction books that discuss the state of our current health care system. This category includes books that make recommendations for improving quality, safety, cost-savings, etc.

Hint: This is a great place to find supplemental reading for nursing school leadership classes. If you have time for such things. 😉

I mentioned this great book in my post about clinical handovers – definitely worth a read! Atul Gawande discusses the increasing complexity of health care, and the importance of creating visual reminders and cues to help us keep our patients safe.
