Overview


Summers' new text examines all the particular issues and specific concerns that should be understood and addressed for each high-risk population. The text indicates what warning signs to look for, what questions to ask, and what potential problems may arise. While it primarily functions as a companion text to Summers' FUNDAMENTALS OF CASE MANAGEMENT PRACTICE, which covers the basics of case management, this new text presents the basic steps in practice, dealing with specific "high-risk" populations. It also offers a greater focus on intake and monitoring. Although Summers' two books are related, this book can also be used on its own or as a supplement to other, more theoretical texts. The text is also an ideal reference for students working with specific populations.
