In the face of ever-accelerating rates of health reform, the ability to quickly learn and adapt is an increasingly essential survival skill. Collaborative learning, as this book illustrates, is a powerful method to rapidly spread knowledge. Yet knowledge comes in two flavors ??" “knowledge that” and “knowledge how.” Knowing that a bicycle has two wheels, a seat, handlebars and a foot-pedal crank, for example, stands in sharp contrast to the practical knowledge of how to ride a bike.
This book assembles the world??s leading experts around healthcare collaborative learning, where “all teach, all learn” to massively accelerate learning and effective change. They share both the theory (knowledge that) and principles of practical application (knowledge how). Their complementary viewpoints and varied practical examples illuminate the central issues and core principles from every angle. That??s what makes it possible to apply these methods to the unique circumstances of any actual healthcare organization.
- Brent James, M.D., MStat, Chief Quality Officer, Intermountain Health Care
