Abstract
This book is the first in a two-volume set of textbooks and focuses on outcomes analysis in pediatric cardiac care, supporting the coverage of quality improvement and patient safety in its sister title. There has been a huge research effort undertaken in pediatric and congenital cardiac care to understand and measure what is done, to establish collaborative definitions and tools of measurement, and to determine robust benchmarks and methodologies to analyze outcomes. This book concentrates on implementation science in terms of continuous quality improvements and safety science and systems. Pediatric and Congenital Cardiac Care: Volume 1, Outcomes Analysis reveals the remarkable developments that have been seen in the fields of pediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery. This unique collaboration between four Editors from disparate medical disciplines (cardiac surgery, cardiology, anesthesia, and critical care) incorporates an international community of scholarship with articles by luminaries and cutting edge thinkers on the current and future status of pediatric and congenital cardiac care. The goal of this and its companion volume is to understand and advance the profession and its activities, to use common terms, and to improve the management of risk and safety in order to enhance pediatric and congenital cardiac care.
