Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"As an experienced quality professional in my organization, I can honestly say that I enjoyed reading this book. It can be appreciated through the lens of a new student preparing for a career in healthcare as well as by an experienced professional. The book is more than a task-oriented presentation and "how to" book. It combines theory, model, tools, and practical application. The seventh edition is justified since the last edition was published in 2015 and healthcare quality is a rapidly evolving environment."

-- Joann Badget, DNP (c), RN (James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital) Doody's Review
