Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Naoko Muramatsu, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Description: This is a comprehensive overview of the continuum of long-term care, designed as teaching material in health administration and public health. Consisting of 24 chapters written by 38 experts in long-term care, this book encompasses a wide range of services in the continuum from hospital services to housing and informal care.
Purpose: The purpose is to present a conceptual framework for designing an ideal organization of integrated continuum of care and to provide concrete information about the components of the continuum. Its pragmatic approach is evident in examples and case studies throughout the book as well as in the section covering "What the Administrator Needs to Know" in each chapter.
Audience: The book is intended for administrators in acute care, managed care, and any segment of long-term care. The potential audiences include students and instructors in health administration, public health, gerontology, and other health professional programs.
Features: The book contains appropriate tables, graphs, and diagrams to facilitate the understanding of the material. Up-to-date references and lists of resources at the end of each chapter are useful for further information. The appendixes include a list of relevant organizations and associations as well as a glossary.
Assessment: This is a compilation of timely information on the rapidly changing and expanding field of long-term care in the United States. Previous fragmented information is now integrated into one volume. This is a much needed book on long-term care in health administration, public health, gerontology, and other health professional programs. Some redundant information throughout the book helps each chapter serve as an independent reference source. This practically oriented book will also be a handy reference for administrators, professionals, and researchers in long-term care.
