Good blog post on the Gawande. A negative review of the book in the Wall Street Journal. A positive review on Amazon by Malcolm Gladwell.
My emphasis on teaching as my personal niche in medicine is from the idea that more important than pushing boundries of science is to learn the lessons of what has already been discovered.
After reading a couple of chapters I searched for Gawande in the NEJM and was delighted to see the breadth of contributions he has made as either scientist, editorialist or subject.
Right now I am busy crafting checklists for nephrology. I am focusing on the outpatient CKD care and routine admissions for hemodialysis patients.
Is anyone aware of checklist implementation in nephrology?
