Subject: Ref Q: ILL "Crossing the quality chasm"

I do not understand BRM. Why is that better than NOT? What am I supposed =
to learn from BRM? That I shouldn't resubmit through Docline because all =
my resources have been tried? It's frustrating to get BRM.=20

Anyway, does anyone have "Crossing the quality chasm: a new health system =
for the 21st century / Commitee on Quality Health, 2001?"

I would like to borrow it for a short time. Thanks for your help.
