Pediatric And Congenital Cardiac Care Vol. 1

Sanchez, Barach, Johnson, Jacobs
The fields of pediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery have grown and progressed faster than most other fields in medicine. In this first of its kind textbook, the current state of outcomes analysis, quality improvement, and patient safety are examined.   There are growing questions regarding the safety, quality, risk management, and costs of pediatric cardiac surgery teams, their training and preparedness, and their implications on the welfare of patients and families.
This volume focuses on leading work in pediatric cardiac care to understand and measure improved patient outcomes and how to establish collaborative definitions and tools of quality and outcomes measurement.  This innovative book, authored by an international authorship, will highlight the best practices in improving survival while paving a roadmap for the expected changes in the next 10 years as healthcare undergoes major transformation and reform.
