Abstract

This book, entitled “Pediatric and Congenital Cardiac Care: Volume 2: Quality Improvement, and Patient Safety,” is part two of a two volume textbook. The focus of Volume 1 is outcomes analysis. The focus of Part 2 is quality improvement and patient safety. Leading work has been undertaken in pediatric cardiac care to understand and measure what is done and how, to establish collaborative definitions and tools of measurement, and to determine robust benchmarks and methodologies to analyze outcomes. The book highlights best practices for measuring outcomes of pediatric cardiac care. The first volume of this textbook concentrated on measurement and analysis of outcomes. This volume, Volume 2, of the textbook will focus on implementation science in terms of continuous quality improvements and safety science and systems.
