Clinical Risk Management
Risk management is now a major issue in health care, aimed at reducing the likelihood of harming patients during treatment, minimising trauma to those who are affected, and controlling the possibility of subsequent litigation.
Written by leading specialists in clinical risk management from the United Kingdom and the United States, and with chapters by clinicians in the key specialties, this comprehensive text takes a positive approach. It addresses means of improving the quality of care, and places special emphasis on occasions when patients may be harmed or disturbed by treatment.
In three sections it provides a full guide to the principles of risk management, reducing the risk in clinical practice, and implementing risk management. The last section includes chapters on investigation of complaints; caring for patients; supporting staff; and claims management.
This timely book will provide all the information needed by risk managers, hospital managers, doctors, and nurses to recognise potential clinical risks and deal in the optimum way with any claims that may arise. It will also be of interest to lawyers and academics concerned with the impact of litigation on clinical practice.
