Quality (55) Institute of Medicine report: Crossing the quality chasm (2)

26 June, 2021

Richard, Neil,

I haven't seen the book you referenced to be able to compare, but it looks as though it is spawned out of ongoing work?? from the "National Academies of Science, Engineering & Medicine" compared to "Institute of Medicine; Committee on Quality of Health Care in America".

I was recommended this book by Prof. Ed Coffee (Zero Suicide Prevention)
