  • Draws upon the extensive personal experiences and research of its clinical authors for examples and practical solutions
  • Includes a questionnaire to help users pinpoint individual problems, plus a link to a web site offering advice tailored to their specific circumstances for hospitals having trouble with staff adherence to a quality initiative
