 Take control of your patient satisfaction with the Physician’s
Guide to Surviving CGCAHPS & HCAHPS by Trina E. Dorrah, MD, MPH. As
patients demand more from their healthcare providers, publicly reported,
standardized patient satisfaction surveys are now the norm.


Despite the importance of these surveys, medical education often
does not teach healthcare providers how to improve patient satisfaction and
succeed with CGCAHPS and HCAHPS. That is, until now.



With Dr. Dorrah’s step-by-step instructional guide, healthcare
providers will learn the fundamentals of patient satisfaction, including
CGCAHPS and HCAHPS survey basics, and overall tips for succeeding on patient
satisfaction surveys.



Doctors,
physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and students alike will quickly
learn how to improve their patients’ satisfaction with Dr. Dorrah’s essential
Physician’s Guide to Surviving CGCAHPS & HCAHPS.

About the author

Trina E. Dorrah, MD, MPH, is a board-certified internal medicine physician who currently practices at Baylor Scott & White Health in Round Rock, TX. After earning her doctorate of medicine from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, she completed her residency in internal medicine and her master’s degree in public health from the University of Alabama, Birmingham.

Upon completion of a fellowship in quality improvement through the VA National Quality Scholars program, Dr. Dorrah began practicing medicine and accepted the role of medical director of quality for the Baylor Scott & White Health hospital in Round Rock, TX. It is there where she has led numerous improvement initiatives and honed her passion for patient satisfaction. 

Dr. Dorrah loves helping physicians and other healthcare providers succeed with patient satisfaction, and it is this desire that led her to write Physician’s Guide to Surviving CGCAHPS & HCAHPS.

Over the past few decades, the radiological science community has developed and applied numerous models of the human body for radiation protection, diagnostic imaging, and nuclear medicine therapy. The Handbook of Anatomical Models for Radiation Dosimetry provides a comprehensive review of the development and application of these computational models, known as "phantoms."

An ambitious and unparalleled project, this pioneering work is the result of several years of planning and preparation involving 64 authors from across the world. It brings together recommendations and information sanctioned by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) and documents 40 years of history and the progress of those involved with cutting-edge work with Monte Carlo Codes and radiation protection dosimetry. This volume was in part spurred on by the ICRP’s key decision to adopt voxelized computational phantoms as standards for radiation protection purposes. It is an invaluable reference for those working in that area as well as those employing or developing anatomical models for a a number of clinical applications.

Assembling the work of nearly all major phantom developers around the world, this volume examines:

The history of the research and development in computational phantoms Detailed accounts for each of the well-known phantoms, including the MIRD-5, GSF Voxel Family Phantoms, NCAT, UF Hybrid Pediatric Phantoms, VIP-Man, and the latest ICRP Reference Phantoms Physical phantoms for experimental radiation dosimetry

The smallest voxel size (0.2 mm), phantoms developed from the Chinese Visible Human Project

Applications for radiation protection dosimetry involving environmental, nuclear power plant, and internal contamination exposures

Medical applications, including nuclear medicine therapy, CT examinations, x-ray radiological image optimization, nuclear medicine imaging, external photon and proton treatments, and management of respiration in modern image-guided radiation treatment Patient-specific phantoms used for radiation treatment planning involving two Monte Carlo code systems: GEANT4 and EGS Future needs for research and development

Related data sets are available for download on the authors’ website. The breadth and depth of this work enables readers to obtain a unique sense of the complete scientific process in computational phantom development, from the conception of an idea, to the identification of original anatomical data, to solutions of various computing problems, and finally, to the ownership and sharing of results in this groundbreaking field that holds so much promise.

The New York Times bestselling author of Better and Complications reveals the surprising power of the ordinary checklist

We live in a world of great and increasing complexity, where even the most expert professionals struggle to master the tasks they face. Longer training, ever more advanced technologies—neither seems to prevent grievous errors. But in a hopeful turn, acclaimed surgeon and writer Atul Gawande finds a remedy in the humblest and simplest of techniques: the checklist. First introduced decades ago by the U.S. Air Force, checklists have enabled pilots to fly aircraft of mind-boggling sophistication. Now innovative checklists are being adopted in hospitals around the world, helping doctors and nurses respond to everything from flu epidemics to avalanches. Even in the immensely complex world of surgery, a simple ninety-second variant has cut the rate of fatalities by more than a third.

In riveting stories, Gawande takes us from Austria, where an emergency checklist saved a drowning victim who had spent half an hour underwater, to Michigan, where a cleanliness checklist in intensive care units virtually eliminated a type of deadly hospital infection. He explains how checklists actually work to prompt striking and immediate improvements. And he follows the checklist revolution into fields well beyond medicine, from disaster response to investment banking, skyscraper construction, and businesses of all kinds.

An intellectual adventure in which lives are lost and saved and one simple idea makes a tremendous difference, The Checklist Manifesto is essential reading for anyone working to get things right.
