Continuing its superiority in the health care risk management field, The Risk Management Handbook for Health Care Organizations (5th Edition), is written by the key practitioners and consultants in the field. Included are many practical chapters and health care examples than before as well as additional material on methods and techniques of risk reduction and management. This edition also revises the structure of the previous edition, and focuses on operational and organizational structure rather than risk areas and functions. Readers will welcome this more practical and user-friendly approach.
