Hi New Practitioners and members alike! I wanted to mention an author that a few of us NPN Committee members really enjoy named Atul Gawande, MD, MPH. He is a surgeon, writer and public health researcher associated with Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School. His 4 books have greatly influenced my thoughts on various aspects of my practice, and he is a frequent contributor to The New Yorker on health policies. Check out I own all of his books, so message me if you want to borrow a copy. I encourage any member to reply back to this thread with additional names of influential authors they recommend. Sincerely, Laura, IPhA President-Elect.

Hey, I wanted to follow up on Laura's post: Y'all need to read up on Atul Gawande. I started with the Checklist Manifesto and honestly you already know the point of the book (Can you make a checklist? Yes, you can!), but the way he tells a narrative about how imperative we need to think about how we practice is what is important. My latest read was his Being Mortal, and I feel like this needs to be mandatory reading for anyone in pharmacy because we all could do with a better perspective on our elderly patients. I'm actually going to start reading Better after I finish my current read, so I can't wait to see what he has to say there. Anyone else have a chance to read from Dr. Gawande?
