Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lena L Watson, Dr. RN, MBA/HCM(University of Phoenix)
Description: This is an easy to read book on developing and implementing nursing peer review functions in a healthcare setting.
Purpose: It is intended as a guide to the peer review nursing process in an organization. The authors note that implementing a peer review process can be "complicated, and fraught with emotional and procedural issues." Nursing peer review is an area that is being recognized an integral part of quality improvement in healthcare. This book meets its objectives and empowers nurses to take charge of and govern the peer review process.
Audience: Written for a broad nursing audience, the book is ideal for nurse leaders, educators, and quality managers, as well as any entity responsible for implementing and overseeing nurse peer review functions within an organization.
Features: This publication is fun to read and easy to follow. The beginning of the book defines the term incidence-based nursing peer review. It guides the reader through the process using a host of figures, case studies, and matrices and includes a CD-ROM with customizable forms. There are instructions on how to conduct chart reviews, and actions to take once a nursing peer review is complete. The book covers how to benchmark data in order to track and trend results over time. Another feature is that it identifies and explains how the nursing peer review process relates to the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program. The book's soft cover may not sustain heavy or frequent use, but the CD-ROM has some of the forms and case study review forms that are reproducible.
Assessment: This book promotes nursing accountability in a practical way, offering new insights into and strategies for a tedious process. It's a great guide for novice to expert nurses.
