Pathways of Care are used in all areas of healthcare to improve clinical effectiveness and the quality of patient care. This book is an essential reference source for all those involved in co–ordinating healthcare delivery. It is a valuable tool both for those piloting the use of Pathways and for those who have implemented Pathway programmes, and will be a useful guide for anyone interested in investigating or using Pathways. The book provides detailed information on the concepts of Pathways with many examples of how Pathways of care have been implemented and used in different clinical settings. The text considers key topics including clinical guidelines, legal issues, risk management and analysis of variation. With contributions from experts in a wide range of settings including community and mental health as well as cardiology, urology, orthopaedics and paediatrics, this well–referenced text draws on practical experience of identifying, evaluating and modifying the process of health care delivery.
