Overview

The contributors to this volume provide an overview of each component of the acute and long-term care service continuum, including managed health care, subacute care, nursing homes, community care case management, and private case management. This volume is one of the first efforts to place these varied approaches side-by-side, highlighting the gaps and areas of duplication in the services delivery system.

In addition, chapters address the emerging practices in long-term care financing and assisted living as well as the conceptual issues that need to be resolved to achieve acute and chronic care integration. This volume is of primary importance to professionals involved in long-term care, including administration, community nursing, social work, case management, discharge planning and policy.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Loretta Jean Heuer, PhD, RN (University of North Dakota College of Nursing)
Description: Incorporating perspectives from the acute and long-term care services, the editors and authors of this book critically examine and analyze the financial needs of the geriatric population. In addition, they reflect on the political and conceptual issues that need to be resolved if there is to be an integration of acute and chronic care along with the emerging trends. They identify areas in which there are gaps or duplication of services and make recommendations for improving delivery of acute and long-term care services.
Purpose: The authors attempt to reduce unnecessary treatment and ensure service quality by presenting a common vision of what delivery systems might do or benefits that would occur by integrating acute and chronic care.
Audience: The target audience is individuals who are involved in managing the acute and chronic care of the geriatric population. Graduate nursing schools will find this book useful for the geriatric content of their curriculum. It would be a difficult book for individuals such as undergraduate nursing students to read if they are not familiar with the multiple providers and their acronyms or the issues associated with the geriatric population.
Features: The editors and authors organized the content of the book into specific segments that supply readers with excellent footnotes and references. Tables are pertinent to the information provided by the authors in the text. The title is misleading because the individual may think the book focuses on issues throughout the life span instead of the geriatric population.
Assessment: The authors represent collective experiences in managed care, subacute care, nursing homes, community care case management, and private case management. Academics, health professionals, and advanced students who specialize in geriatric issues will find substantial value in the content of this book, and they can use it as a reference source.
