"This is a nice introduction to the concepts of continuous quality improvement.It is a comfortable read and is written at an elementary level in comparison to other textbooks in the pharmacy curriculum. This may be necessary, since the authors rightly conclude there is a lack of discussion of quality improvement in the pharmacy curriculum. 3 Stars."-- Doody's Review Service

"This book is a great resource for pharmacists and pharmacy students who want to learn about safety and quality in pharmacy practice."--Laura Cranston, RPh, Executive Director, The Pharmacy Quality Alliance
