The Medical Staff Services handbook is the most comprehensive educational resource available for medical staff services departments. More than an introductory text it covers all department functions and offers practical advice on managing the credentialing and privileging process. This indispensable book can be used as a training tool for students, new employees, and physician leaders; as an on-the-job reference for medical staff services professionals; and as a guide to standardizing department processes. This second edition offers new information on the professional practice evaluation process. It addresses healthcare accreditation programs and hospital functions such as the institutional review board, cancer programs, and accredited continuing medical education programs. Helpful guidance on healthcare technology and legal issues is also included. Students who will be taking the NAMSS exam will find this handbook an ideal preparation tool.
