'In Healthcare Reform, Quality and Safety the editors and contributing authors skilfully address questions about whether, how and to what extent healthcare reforms affect quality and safety. The book provides valuable and extensive international comparisons between health reform strategies from 30 health systems in five global regions. Perhaps uniquely, the authors present distinct differences in health systems, national healthcare reforms and quality and safety outcomes while they also note similarities in goals, values and, occasionally, outcomes.' Paula Hyde, Durham University, UK 'What do people do when reforming health systems? They take different approaches in different countries - with different results but important common lessons. This book offers a unique collection of case studies from 30 countries plus commentary and synthesis from leading academics in the field of health system reform.' Trisha Greenhalgh, University of Oxford, UK 'A remarkable compendium describing the journeys of change and reform in the world's healthcare systems. These accounts show the integrity of those involved, the challenges they face and the difficulty of evaluating system level change. Ultimately I was most struck by the optimism and humanity of the authors in sharing their stories and their determination to learn from both failure and success across the world.'
-Charles Vincent, University of Oxford, United Kingdom
"With contributions from over 50 authors, this book looks at the ways in which healthcare reforms have developed in 30 countries, and specifically the impact national reform initiatives have had on the quality and safety of care. It explores how reform can drivee quality and safety improvement, and equally how they can act to negate such goals."
