November 1, 2017, Boston, MA –  At a time when complexity in health care presents mounting challenges to providers across the continuum, Press Ganey Chief Nursing Officer Christina Dempsey delivers an indispensable guide to reduce patient and caregiver suffering – and improve health care delivery for all patients.  Published by McGraw-Hill, her new book, The Antidote to Suffering: How Compassionate Connected Care Can Improve Safety, Quality and Experience, is now available via Amazon and other select retailers.

Having experienced health care from every viewpoint, ranging from the ward floor to the hospital boardroom to being a family member of a critically ill patient and a patient herself, Dempsey brings a 360-degree perspective to health care delivery. Through her book, she offers a comprehensive, detailed, evidence-based plan that addresses the clinical, operational, cultural, and behavioral dimensions of care that every patient and caregiver experiences, in every setting.

 “The key to improving health care is to reduce the suffering – physical, psychological, and emotional – of patients and caregivers alike,” said Dempsey. “By delivering Compassionate Connected Care, we not only decrease suffering, but we also improve outcomes for patients as well as those who care for them. The Antidote to Suffering illustrates how to achieve these goals and create a virtuous cycle that results in a culture that drives quality, safety, and value.”

With more than 30 years of experience as a clinician and leader, Dempsey is regularly called upon to inspire health care audiences to reduce suffering through patient-centered strategies. Prior to Press Ganey, she held numerous senior leadership roles both in a corporate and clinical health care environment. Dempsey frequently speaks and publishes nationally and internationally on patient experience, nursing, patient flow, physician-hospital collaboration, and balancing cost and quality.
