              The horizontal arrangement of healthcare into primary, secondary and tertiary care is no longer useful or fiscally prudent. We must move from a service in which institutions are the dominant type of organisation to one in which systems dominate. A systems approach to healthcare... recognises the importance of self-care and informal care in the management of symptoms, and provides a tool to ensure that the right patients access the right care, and that the care is delivered right. A systems approach can answer the currently unanswerable question: 'Are we - as patients, payers, or clinicians - getting maximum value from the resources invested in our core business?' Creating Systems will also provide you with answers to such questions as: What are healthcare systems, and how are they built? Why are healthcare systems important? How are systems best managed? How do systems fit in?

              David Galler also shows rare courage in weaving his own, personal stories into his teaching about the technologies of care. This book will equally deepen the awareness of clinicians and enlighten the lay reader. It is a gift to both.' Donald M. Berwick, MD, MPP In this highly art...iculate, down-to-earth, generous book, Dr David Galler tells stories of life and death from his position as Intensive Care specialist at Middlemore Hospital. Written lyrically and warmly, these stories are based on real life events describing the everyday dilemmas and challenges that doctors and patients commonly face. It aims to explain and demystify much of the work doctors do, cast light on the workings of the medical establishment and how medicine operates, in the hope that it will encourage patients to seek to be better informed and play a greater role in the decisions that will affect them and their loved ones. It speaks to the resilience of individuals and families and their extraordinary generosity and dignity under the most extreme pressure. This book is about realistic optimism and is a celebration of life. It is also a very personal story about David Galler's life, his family and about his own slow coming of age as a doctor, from the sadness and helplessness he felt about his father's death to at last feeling that he was of some use to his most important patient, his mother.
