Little in the current world is simple. Nothing comes in a box for us to add water and stir. There are those, however, who have been successful and who are willing to share their success. The messages in The Public Health Quality Improvement Handbook are from leaders, physicians, practitioners, academics, consultants, and researchers who are successfully applying the tools and techniques they share. The chapters are written to support the leaders and workforce of the public health community.
There has never been a better or more crucial time for QI in America’s health systems. This book provides a wealth of examples that will assist you with effectively expanding the use of QI tools and techniques to improve the nation’s health and the health of the communities you serve.
