Continuing its superiority in the health care risk management field, The Risk Management Handbook for Health Care Organizations (6th Edition), is written by the key practitioners and consultant in the field. Included are many practical chapters and health care examples than before as well as additional material on methods and techniques of risk reduction and management. This edition also revises the structure of the previous edition, and focuses on operational and organizational structure rather than risk areas and functions. Readers will welcome this more practical and user-friendly approach.

Volume I, a risk management primer, incorporates the basic elements of risk management. Several topics will be given a more comprehensive treatment in one of the other two volumes. This volume is also perfect as a general overview and used by academia.

A wealth of checklists and detailed, up-to-date explanations of regulatory and legal changes will help novice and veteran risk managers learn to manage risk effectively.
