Culture, Context and Quality in Health Sciences Research, Education, Leadership and Patient Care (Second book in a series of five) Sustainably Improving Health Care promotes the importance of integrating improved care outcomes, system performance, and professional development so that the future of health-care advancement is creative and sustainable. It addresses the challenge of creating and nurturing a culture of continuous improvement that is able to sustain and generate creative professional work for the improvement of health care. Using real-world examples, the book succinctly reveals how the model can be practically applied from a variety of different perspectives. "This book makes the persuasive argument that well-intended efforts to redesign and reform health care will enjoy only short lives without the full commitment and engagement of the health-care worker - the product of the sustainability- and capacity-building engine of professional development." Dave Davis MD, CCFP, FCFP, in the Foreword "This book is about a model that has emerged from our own work, our observations of the work of colleagues and others, and our refl ections about the requirements for the future of the continual improvement of health care. We explore its origins, its content and manifestations, and its implications, particularly for health professional leaders interested in the ongoing improvement of health care. Form and vitality develop in the model as it engages reality - the reality of trying to create cultures of sustainable, generative approaches to the ongoing improvement of health care."
