Researching Patient Safety and Quality in Healthcare : A Nordic Perspective, Hardback Book

Researching Patient Safety and Quality in Healthcare : A Nordic Perspective Hardback

Edited by Karina (University of Stavanger, Stavanger, Norway) Aase, Lene (University of Stavanger) Schibevaag



Researching Patient Safety and Quality in Health Care: A Nordic Perspective is an anthology based on contributions from leading researchers on quality and safety in healthcare in the Nordic countries together with four internationally renowned patient safety authors.

Research on patient safety and quality has been dominated by countries such as the USA, England, Canada, and Australia.

This book addresses the current debates in research on patient safety and quality in healthcare from a Nordic perspective.

What are the flavours of Nordic research within these topics?

What does it add to the international research literature?

This book illustrates the unique nature of researching patient safety and quality with the Nordic perspective as well as showcasing representative work. The book presents an overview of the status and evidence of international and Nordic research on quality and safety in healthcare.

Four different perspectives are used to present the trends within the research field: a patient perspective, a methodological perspective, a theoretical perspective, and a clinical perspective.

The book then presents the status of Nordic research in the field and displays a set of illustrative work and current research topics within the Nordic context, concluding with a discussion of the characteristic features of Nordic research on patient safety and quality in healthcare.

The anthology presents an inter-professional perspective and researchers from disciplines such as medical and nursing sciences, humanities, social sciences and engineering.

It is written to contribute to the patient safety cause with translational knowledge that will be useful to researchers, policy makers and healthcare managers within Nordic countries and internationally.
