Health systems everywhere are expected to meet increasing public and political demands for accessible, high-quality care. Policy-makers, managers, and clinicians use their best efforts to improve efficiency, safety, quality, and economic viability. One solution has been to mimic approaches that have been shown to work in other domains, such as quality management, lean production, and high reliability. In the enthusiasm for such solutions, scant attention has been paid to the fact that health care as a multifaceted system differs significantly from most traditional industries. Solutions based on linear thinking in engineered systems do not work well in complicated, multi-stakeholder non-engineered systems, of which health care is a leading example. A prerequisite for improving health care and making it more resilient is that the nature of everyday clinical work be well understood. Yet the focus of the majority of policy or management solutions, as well as that of accreditation and regulation, is work as it ought to be (also known as ‘work-as-imagined’). The aim of policy-makers and managers, whether the priority is safety, quality, or efficiency, is therefore to make everyday clinical work - or work-as-done - comply with work-as-imagined. This fails to recognise that this normative conception of work is often oversimplified, incomplete, and outdated. There is therefore an urgent need to better understand everyday clinical work as it is done. Despite the common focus on deviations and failures, it is undeniable that clinical work goes right far more often than it goes wrong, and that we only can make it better if we understand how this happens. This second volume of Resilient Health Care continues the line of thinking of the first book, but takes it further through a range of chapters from leading international thinkers on resilience and health care. Where the first book provided the rationale and basic concepts of RHC, the Resilience of Everyday Clinical Work breaks new ground by analysing everyday work situations in primary, secondary, and tertiary care to identify and describe the fundamental strategies that clinicians everywhere have developed and use with a fluency that belies the demands to be resolved and the dilemmas to be balanced. Because everyday clinical work is at the heart of resilience, it is essential to appreciate how it functions, and to understand its characteristics.

care systems succeed and stop perpetuating the myopic focus on how they fail.
This realisation has been expressed by juxtaposing two views on safety, Safety-I

The book demonstrates how Resilient Health Care principles can enable those on the frontline to work more effectively towards interdisciplinary care by gaining a deeper understanding of the boundaries that exist in everyday clinical settings. This is done by presenting a set of case studies, theoretical chapters and applications that relate experiences, bring forth ideas and illustrate practical solutions. The chapters address many different issues such as resolving conflict, overcoming barriers to patient-flow management, and building connections through negotiation. They represent a range of approaches, rather than a single way of solving the practical problems, and have been written to serve both a scientific and an andragogical purpose. Working Across Boundaries is primarily aimed at people who are directly involved in the running and improvement of health care systems, providing them with practical guidance. It will also be of direct interest to health care professionals in clinical and managerial positions as well as researchers. Presents the latest work of the lauded Resilient Health Care Net group, developing applications of Resilience Engineering to health care, furthering safety thinking and generating applicable solutions that will benefit patient safety worldwide Enables health care professionals to become aware of the boundaries that affect their work so that they are able to use their strengths and overcome their weaknesses Written from a Safety-II perspective, where the purpose is to make sure that as much as possible goes well and the focus therefore is on everyday work rather than on failures. There are at present no other books that adopt this perspective nor which go into the practical details Provides a concise presentation of the state of resilient health care as a science, in terms of major theoretical issues and practical methods and techniques on the overarching and important topics of boundary-crossing and integration of care settings

This is the fifth book published within the Ashgate Studies in Resilience Engineering series. The first volume introduced resilience engineering broadly. The second and third volumes established the research foundation for the real-world applications that then were described in the fourth volume: Resilience Engineering in Practice. The current volume continues this development by focusing on the role of resilience in the development of solutions. Since its inception, the development of resilience engineering as a concept and a field of practice has insisted on expanding the scope from a preoccupation with failure to include also the acceptable everyday functioning of a system or an organisation. The preoccupation with failures and adverse outcomes focuses on situations where something goes wrong and the tries to keep the number of such events and their (adverse) outcomes as low as possible. The aim of resilience engineering and of this volume is to describe how safety can change from being protective to become productive and increase the number of things that go right by improving the resilience of the system.

This book is the 3rd volume in the Resilient Health Care series. Resilient health care is a product of both the policy and managerial efforts to organize, fund and improve services, and the clinical care which is delivered directly to patients. This volume continues the lines of thought in the first two books. Where the first volume provided the rationale and basic concepts of RHC and the second teased out the everyday clinical activities which adjust and vary to create safe care, this book will look more closely at the connections between the sharp and blunt ends. Doing so will break new ground, since the systematic study in patient safety to date with few exceptions has been limited.

The editors are proud to present our readers with a significantly expanded book, featuring 14 chapters by a distinguished group of 40 academic authors with decades of collective leadership experience. Based on the success of Volume 1, the current book in our series seeks to expand into important new areas. This includes diverse topics such as resilient leadership; electronic medical record implementations; interviewing for leadership positions; effective management in the low-resource setting; academic affiliations; crisis leadership; care quality and patient safety; the importance of diversity in health-care; complexity theory and ethics; change management; exploration of the executive function-dysfunction spectrum; and many other related concepts. The current tome begins with an introductory chapter that provides an in-depth overview of various theoretical aspects of leadership, including the most commonly encountered leadership styles. Throughout the book the authors focus on practical relevance of the topics being discussed, presenting 'lessons learned' and stressing the importance of flexible, authentic, servant leadership. The editors hope that Volume 2 of the Fundamentals of Leadership for Healthcare Professionals will be equally, or perhaps even more successful than Volume 1, and that it will provide an excellent springboard for Volume 3 in this important and unique book series!

Professor Sir Michael Rutter has been, without question, the most influential and renowned child and adolescent psychiatrist of his era, both nationally and internationally. His innovative thinking and research practice has been at the forefront of research into both biological and psychosocial factors influencing child mental health and has established a developmental approach to integrating these different variables within child psychopathology. Rutter's work has also been marked by its collaborative quality with disciplines other than medicine. A remarkable number of his ideas and findings over the years have stood the test of time. This collection of some of Michael Rutter's most influential and important publications has been made with his collaboration. It includes a number of widely quoted papers from early in his career that are not otherwise easy to access, and covers papers representing the whole range of his research activities from psychiatric classification, psychosocial influences and genetic mechanisms through to the myth of adolescent turmoil. The collection contains a complete bibliography of Michael Rutter's publications to date.

This document, the second of three volumes in the U.S. Congress Office of Technology Assessment's "Adolescent Health" series, provides background information on aspects of adolescents' lives and examines the effectiveness of prevention and treatment interventions. Chapter 1, an introduction to this two-part document, provides a summary of the contents of this volume as well as an outline of the series as a whole. Part 1 focuses on the background of adolescent health and provides a framework for viewing the lives and social environments of adolescents. The three individual chapters in this part examine respectively: adolescent development that may affect health, the delivery of health services, and public policy with respect to adolescents; the families of adolescents and models of parent-adolescent interaction; and school environments and discretionary time. Each of the 10 chapters in part 2 examines a specific health problem: accidental injuries; chronic physical illnesses; nutrition and fitness problems; dental and oral health problems; Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and other sexually transmitted diseases; pregnancy and parenting; mental health problems; alcohol, tobacco, and drug abuse; delinquency; and homelessness. For each chapter, sections are included on: (1) limitations of existing sources of data on the health problem, the prevalence of the problem among adolescents, and differences in prevalence by selected sociodemographic and nondemographic characteristics; (2) information on the prevention and treatment of the problem; (3) relevant federal policies and programs; and (4) conclusions and policy implications. A separate index is included for Volumes I, II, and III of this "Adolescent Health" series. (NB)
