Practicing Excellence, A Physician's Manual to Exceptional Health Care, Beeson, Stephen C
1 Beeson, Stephen C Practicing Excellence, A Physician's Manual to Exceptional Health Care
Fire Starter Publishing 2006 097499863X / 9780974998633 softcover used 201 pages 
from the cover: "So much of a medical organization's success rides on the leadership, conduct, and performance of its physicians. How does a health care organization engage its physicians to lead by example? And how does a physician - in the midst of 25 appointments, 30 phone messages, hospital rounds, and the details of "managing" a clinical practice - do what needs to be done to foster satisfaction and loyalty among patients? Practicing Excellence eloquently answers these questions.

Stephen C. Beeson, MD, has created a brilliant guide to implementing physician leadership and behaviors that will create a high-performance workplace built on collaboration, commitment, purpose, and making a difference in the lives of the patients it serves. This book addresses:

  • Why hardwiring a Culture of Excellence into your organization is so critical
  • Why physician engagement and leadership is fundamental to organizational improvement
  • How to create physician "buy in" to a system-wide organizational change
  • How to select, train, and position a physician champion to lead a commitment to excellence
  • How to create collaboration, trust, partnership, and loyalty with patients through trained physician behaviors
  • How to use measurement of patient satisfaction to improve and incentivize physician performance
  • How to execute effective service recovery with dissatisfied patients
  • How to manage difficult clinical patient situations
  • How to select physicians for your group who match your medical group's culture
  • How to improve physician satisfaction through an organizational journey to excellence

    Throughout this inspiring and enlightening book, Beeson constantly reminds us why and how physicians - and indeed, health care organizations themselves - change and establish a reputation for being the best."

    In the Face of Suffering, The Philosophical Anthropological Foundations of Clinical Ethics, Welie, Jos V M
    6 Welie, Jos V M In the Face of Suffering, The Philosophical Anthropological Foundations of Clinical Ethics
    Creighton University Press 1999 softcover used 304 pages, 6 inches by 9 inches tall 
    from the cover: "In contemporary health care ethics, respect for patient autonomy is often considered the primary ethical principle, trumping all others. Many health care ethicists and clinicians alike presume that it is impossible to make judgements about patients' best interests. Patients and their health care providers meet as moral strangers. Hence, the conventional wisdom is that clinical interactions should be based on a contractual relationship between tow respectful but estranged people.

    Dr. Jos Welie challenges this moral stranger metaphor and attempts to restore the phenomenon of intersubjective, benevolent care. He presents a philosophical-anthropological foundatoin for clinical ethics in which such notions as suffering, sympathy and solidarity are central. The author's extensive discourse with so many established names in both European and American philosophy and bioethics will make this book a valuable resourse to many professionals."

    Condition: Book is in good condition, the pages are crisp and clean. Cover has rubbing wear, creases, and wear to the edges and corners.
