Muddling through with purpose / edited by Jeffrey Braithwaite, Erik Hollnagel, Garth Hunte. - First edition. - 1 online resource. - Resilient health care ; volume 6 .

"This book promotes an understanding and a greater level of resilient health care. The book provides an awareness to health care workers of the purposeful muddling that so evocatively describes their work, so that they are more informed, and become better able to function and operate in the multitude of complex ecosystems we call "healthcare". This book argues the case for the importance of recognising and understanding muddling behaviours, practices and activities in order to create resilient care. The book demonstrates how resilient health care principles can enable those on the frontlines to work more effectively towards interdisciplinary care by gaining a deeper understanding of real-world practices that manifest in everyday clinical settings. This is done by presenting a set of case studies, theoretical chapters, and applications that relate experiences, bring forth ideas, and illustrate practical solutions. Primarily aimed at people who are directly involved in the running and improvement of health care systems, providing them with practical guidance. It is also direct interest to health care professionals in clinical and managerial positions as well as researchers"--
