Hospital Administration & Care

  • Klassenmedizinby Bernd Kalvelage

    Springer 2014; US$ 39.99

    ?Klassenmedizin? beschreibt ein eklatantes Qualitatsdefizit der Medizin. Selbst eine strikte Gleichbehandlung aller Patienten wurde die schichtspezifischen Unterschiede nicht aufheben: das vermehrte Kranksein, das erschwerte Gesunden und das vorzeitige Sterben in der sogenannten Unterschicht. Soziale Faktoren sind dafur ursachlich verantwortlich. Der... more...

  • Preventing Hospital Infections: Real-World Problems, Realistic Solutionsby Sanjay Saint; Sarah Krein; Robert W. Stock

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 36.99

    Nearly 2 million Americans develop a healthcare-associated infection each year, and some 100,000 of them die as a result. Such infections are highly preventable, particularly through the adoption and implementation of evidence-based methods for reducing patient infection at the point of care. In cases where hospitals fall short of their goals for improving... more...

  • Vital Conversationsby Dennis Rosen

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 26.99

    The health-care system in the United States is by far the most expensive in the world, yet its outcomes are decidedly mediocre in comparison to those of other countries. Poor communication between doctors and patients, Dennis Rosen argues, is at the heart of this disparity, a pervasive problem that damages not only the well-being of the patient but... more...

  • Building a Culture of Patient Safety Through Simulationby Kathleen Gallo; Lawrence G. Smith

    Springer Publishing Company 2014; US$ 75.00

    "[The authors] have brought together a core group of national leaders to produce what I think is a paradigm-busting book that will help to transform education at the graduate level in medicine, nursing, and all related fields. The book speaks expertly about the high fidelity of simulation training, the need for synthetic models, the adult learning... more...

  • 20 Jahre Wettbewerb im Gesundheitswesenby Alexandra Manzei; Rudi Schmiede

    Springer 2014; US$ 29.99

    ?Wahrend das Wettbewerbsparadigma in anderen gesellschaftlichen Teilbereichen spatestens nach der Finanzkrise 2009 nicht mehr unhinterfragt als Konigsweg politischer Regulierung propagiert wird, scheint es in der Gesundheitspolitik vollig ungebrochen. Dies verwundert umso mehr, als mittlerweile zahlreiche empirische Studien vorliegen, die die problematischen... more...

  • The FDA for Doctorsby William H. Eaglstein

    Springer 2014; US$ 79.99

    Many doctors?want?to know more about the?FDA not only so that they might better understand the issues and how they are related to their practice, such as off label-drug usage, but also to enrich their professional lives and allow them to more deeply understand the many FDA related articles written in the popular press.?It is further based on the notion... more...

  • Selling Our Soulsby Adam Dalton Reich

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 39.50

    Health care costs make up nearly a fifth of U.S. gross domestic product, but health care is a peculiar thing to buy and sell. Both a scarce resource and a basic need, it involves physical and emotional vulnerability and at the same time it operates as big business. Patients have little choice but to trust those who provide them care, but even those... more...

  • Grundlagen der Praxiswertermittlungby Thomas Sander

    Springer 2014; US$ 29.99

    ?Was ist meine Praxis eigentlich wert? Die Antwort auf diese Frage erscheint einerseits trivial und ist andererseits doch extrem komplex. In diesem Buch wird das Thema der Praxiswertermittlung im Hinblick auf die praktische Anwendung, aber auf der Grundlage solider bewertungstheoretischer Hintergrunde vermittelt. Die Frage nach dem Wert der Praxis... more...
