Quality and Safety in Nursing: A Competency Approach to Improving Outcomes is the first comprehensive text of its kind devoted to the nursing community's role in improving quality of care and patient safety. Edited by key members of the Quality and Safety Education for Nursing (QSEN) steering team, the book brings together information from various loci and expertly situates it within the continuum of nursing education and practice.

Quality and Safety in Nursing is divided into four sections. The first section links the national initiative for quality and safety to its origins in the IOM report. Section two defines each of the six QSEN competencies in turn, provides instruction on acquiring the skills needed to achieve each competency, and constructs a framework for implementation. Section three further defines implementation strategies in formal education as well as transition into practice. The final section of the book looks toward the future of public policy and global initiatives in improving health care outcomes.

A key resource for academics and clinicians alike, Quality and Safety in Nursing is an essential addition to the library of nurse leaders across the globe.
