Overview

This volume of ARNR addresses the wide-range of chronic illnesses that nurses encounter in their work. The format is the same as previous volumes, with each chapter presenting a careful and systematic review all available research on specific topics. Important issues in chronic issues are reflected throughout, such as a prolonged and uncertain course of illness, lack of easy resolution, rarity of complete cure, frequent unknown etiology, and multiple risk factors. The book ends with a milestone chapter by Susan Donaldson which overviews significant breakthroughs in nursing research over the past 40 years.

Volume 18 introduces a new dimension to the Review. In order to better reflect the increasing specialization of nursing, a nurse expert in a particular specialty area has been selected to edit each volume. Dr. Joyce Fitzpatrick continues to oversee the Review as Series Editor. The majority of each Review will be devoted to the focus area, with one or two chapters addressing important research issues that are of interest to all researchers.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Bette Keeling, PhD, RN, CNAA (Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center)
Description: This volume represents an overview of research conducted from 1980 to 1999 regarding selected chronic illnesses.
Purpose: The purpose is to summarize the research findings related to the selected topics.
Audience: As chronic illnesses are a leading cause of often unreimbursed hospital readmissions, this volume is a rich resource for professionals involved in case management for specific diseases. The target audience is healthcare practitioners, but the volume is useful for researchers as well to identify gaps and trends in research.
Features: Research that has been reported on selected aspects of chronic illnesses, for specific timeframes, is reviewed and summarized. Many of the topics are currently being addressed by multiple organizations to reduce rehospitalizations or the overall costs of care with the added benefit of promoting health for patients with chronic illnesses. The focus is primarily outpatient in nature, but is important for management of the continuum of care.
Assessment: Nowhere else is there such a valuable and important summary of the current research regarding improving outcomes for patients with chronic illnesses. The editor and contributors share the information in such a way that motivates the reader to read all chapters and not just the chapter relevant to his or her interest.
