Booknews
This manual, presented in a large three-ring binder to allow for easy photocopying, provides what's needed to implement a case management system in an ambulatory care setting. Nine chapters in the first part discuss the fundamentals, development and implementation of clinical pathways, outcomes analysis, and research. The second part of the manual is devoted to particular specialties--e.g. dermatology, cardiovascular, endocrine, neurology, obstetrics--and shows how clinical pathways can be tailored for particular settings.
