Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joan C. Murphy, EdD, MS, NP (Utica College of Syracuse University)
Description: This loose leaf format book provides a history and practical guide for those becoming involved with clinical paths in the provision of home care. In addition to a detailed chapter on the development and implementation of clinical paths, there are sample clinical paths and models from practice.
Purpose: The purpose is to explain to those involved in modern home healthcare the role and pracitcal application of clinical paths and effective care planning. Emphasis is placed on the management of both quality and cost across the patient care continuum.
Audience: The intent of the authors is to assist educators, students, and any professional providing home healthcare, including those considering the provision of home healthcare from acute care facilities. The text provides a practical guide for the implementation of clinical paths in the home care setting.
Features: The loose leaf format of the book is practical, colorful, and user friendly. It features clear descriptive text regarding clinical paths enhanced by charts, diagrams, sample clinical paths, and models of paths from practice settings.
Assessment: For those who are even slightly overwhelmed by the jargon and regulations of managed care, this book walks one through the entire scope of clinical paths. Covered are the history, language, practical application, and outcomes. It provides a practical perspective on this topic, thereby empowering one to have some sense of professional control of the jargon and methods. The book is appropriate for individual, healthcare facility (especially home care) and health science (especially nursing) library purchase.
