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
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.
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.
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.
There are many biochemistry textbooks in the market. Some of them are purely basic while others are applied, and there are very few books which cover both these aspects together. For this reason, the students learning biochemistry in their undergraduate courses have to depend on multiple books to acquire a sound knowledge of the subject.
This book, ‘Biochemistry’ is unique with a simultaneous and equal emphasis on basic and applied aspects of biochemistry. This textbook offers an integration of medical and pure sciences, comprehensively written to meet the curriculum requirements of undergraduate courses in medical, dental, pharmacy, life-sciences and other categories (agriculture, veterinary, etc.).
This book is designed to develop in students a sustained interest and enthusiasm to learn and develop the concepts in biochemistry in a logical and stepwise manner. It incorporates a variety of pedagogic aids, besides colour illustrations to help the students understand the subject quickly and to the maximum. The summary and biomedical/clinical concepts are intended for a rapid absorption and assimilation of the facts and concepts in biochemistry. The self-assessment exercises will stimulate the students to think rather than merely learn the subject. In addition, these exercises (essays, short notes, fill in the blanks, multiple choice questions) set at different difficulty levels, will cater to the needs of all the categories of learners.
