Hamilton ACHE Book of the Year, John Nance advanced a paradigm—a model of what a good, successful, safe and efficient hospital looks like.

Overview

In Why Hospitals Should Fly by John J. Nance, JD, the 2009 James A. Hamilton ACHE Book of the Year, John Nance advanced a paradigm—a model of what a good, successful, safe and efficient hospital looks like. The name of the fictional hospital featured in that award-winning book could be stated in Naval terms as a class: A “St. Michael’s-class” hospital (like a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier). In this book, Charting the Course, written by John Nance, JD, and co-authored by Kathleen Bartholomew, RN, MN, they address head-on the challenge of actually becoming a St. Michael’s-class institution by illuminating leadership’s role in changing the culture—and they do so by continuing from Why Hospitals Should Fly the personal and professional journey of Dr. Will Jenkins. His battle, and emerging wisdom born of tragedy, illuminates the norms of the current culture and illustrates why each member of every medical facility, regardless of rank, must be a leader and owner of the cultural revolution needed to keep our system viable and our patients safe. While the first book dealt more with the “why” of a cultural revolution, this sequel deals more with the “how” of changing an ingrained hospital culture. We hope you enjoy Charting the Course as much as you enjoyed Why Hospitals Should Fly.

Editorial Reviews

David Nash
“Charting the Course took my breath away! I felt transported to Las Vegas. I know that ‘What Happens in Vegas’ now will not ‘Stay in Vegas.’ Rather, Las Vegas Memorial could become a new benchmark just like St. Michael’s. The story will leap out at you. My only question is, are you ready to accept its powerful message?”

Meet the Author

John J. Nance, JD, brings a rich and varied professional background to American Healthcare. A lawyer, Air Force and airline pilot, prolific internationally-published author, national broadcaster, and professional speaker, he was one of the founding board members of the National Patient Safety Foundation in 1997, and has become one of the major thought leaders in reforming the culture of medicine.

John is a native Texan who grew up in Dallas, holds a bachelor’s degree from SMU and a juris doctor from SMU’s Dedman School of Law, and is a licensed Texas attorney. A recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award for SMU in 2002 and named Distinguished Alumni for Public Service of the SMU Dedman School of Law in 2010, he is also a decorated Air Force pilot and a Lt. Colonel in the USAF Reserve. John is an internationally recognized air safety advocate, best known to North American television audiences as Aviation Analyst for ABC World News and Aviation Editor for Good Morning America. He is also the nationally-known author of 19 major books, including the highly-acclaimed 2009 book for American Healthcare Why Hospitals Should Fly, which won the prestigious “Book of the Year” award in 2009 from the American College of Healthcare Executives. He lives on San Juan Island, Washington, with his wife and co-author, Kathleen Bartholomew.

Kathleen Bartholomew, RN, MN, is an internationally known speaker and consultant who uses the power of story and her strong background in sociology to study the healthcare culture. The author of Speak Your Truth: Proven Strategies for Effective Nurse-Physician Communication and Ending Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility, she utilized her clinical experience as nurse manager of a 57 bed surgical unit to raise awareness of, and provide ground breaking research on, horizontal violence and physician-nurse communication.

As one of the nation’s most effective speakers on clinical matters affecting relationships, communication, teamwork, and patient safety, she has become a thought leader in changing the way front-line staff relate to each other and leadership to transform the focus of American Healthcare to a truly patient-centric model. She works with boards of directors, CEOs, senior hospital leadership teams, the military and private industry across North America.

Kathleen lives with her husband, co-author John J. Nance, on San Juan Island in Washington State - thanks to match.com.

    Must read for hospital execs

    I just spent a few days in a hospital and I know the CEO needs to read this. The idea presented here would make hospitals better and would help to reduce costs for patients and still improve the bottom line for the hospital.
