Product Description

Product Description

Tracer methodology is a key part of The Joint Commission’s on-site accreditation and certification survey process. So what’s the best way for health care professionals to learn about tracers? PRACTICE.
The Joint Commission Big Book of More Tracer Questions helps you do just that. A companion to the best-selling Joint Commission Big Book of Tracer Questions, this book follows up with more than 2,000 MORE questions to choose from to use during your mock tracers. Customers asked for new questions related to the most challenging Joint Commission standards, as well as questions on topics not covered in the original book, such as medication compounding and disease-specific care. We delivered on that request with The Joint Commission Big Book of More Tracer Questions. Buy this follow-up title and continue to build your mock tracer question library.
The book features a mock tracer template that integrates the concepts of the Survey Analysis for Evaluating Risk® (SAFER™) Matrix. This allows you to more accurately capture and respond to the scope of noncompliance and likelihood to harm in a way that simulates an actual survey.
