About this product
- DescriptionIt is a tragic paradox of American health care: a system rewned for world-class doctors, the latest medical techlogies, and miraculous treatments has shocking inadequacies when it comes to the health of the urban poor. Urban Health Kwledge Management outlines bold, workable strategies for addressing this disparity and eliminating the kwledge islands that so often disrupt effective service delivery. The book offers a wide-reaching global framework for organizational competence leading to improved care quality and outcomes for traditionally underserved clients in diverse, challenging settings. Its contributors understand the issues fluently, imparting both macro and micro concepts of KM with clear rationales and real-world examples as they: * Analyze key aspects of KM and explains their applicability to urban health. * Introduce the KM tools and techlogies most relevant to health care delivery. * Offer evidence of the role of KM in improving clinical efficacy and executive decision-making. * Provide extended case examples of KM-based programs used in Washington, D.C. (child health), South Africa (HIV/AIDS), and Australia (health inequities). * Apply KM principles to urban health needs in developing countries. * Discuss new approaches to managing, evaluating, and improving delivery systems in the book's Measures and Metrics section. Urban health professionals, as well as health care executives and administrators, will find Urban Health Kwledge Management a significant resource for bringing service delivery up to speed at a time of great advancement and change.
