Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary Ann Anderson, Ph.D., RN (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Nursing)
Description: With the underlying theme of "interconnectedness," this book is a series of monographs concerning professional nurse case management. The book is primarily authored by practicing case managers and edited by a nurse executive with expertise in the field.
Purpose: By describing contemporary approaches to nurse case management and the different points of the process experienced by innovators, this book focuses on the conceptual, practical, and "how-to" applications of nurse case management as a system for coordinating care across providers, practice environments, and the health-illness continuum.
Audience: Like the concept of nurse case management, the target audience is very broad and includes nurses in academic and service realms. Nurse managers, clinical specialists, and advanced practice nurses, utilization review and discharge planners, healthcare planners, community leaders, and payers may find this book useful.
Features: The general format, type quality, and illustrations are clear and easy to read. The book is divided into four main sections, with a brief introduction for the chapters in each section. The title reflects the contents and the book has a subject index.
Assessment: Professional nurse case management is an important and timely topic. Authors use "methods of storytelling and relating individual experiences to give the reader a richer and more in-depth view of the specific functional components, processes, and clinical applications" of professional nurse case management. Various authors also provide examples of forms used in the clinical application of professional nurse case management, an addition likely welcomed by practitioners. Although each of the 26 chapters is referenced, the content could have been strengthened through inclusion of more research-based citations. Research findings concerning the central concept, case management, and selected ancillary concepts, such as continuity of care, discharge planning and interorganizational communication in referral of clients, have been reported in well-respected journals. However, the book provides a useful starting point for those needing to become familiar with the concept and issues related to it.

Booknews
The professional contributors to this nursing case management guide offer a personal and birds' eye view of the development, planning, implementation, cost effectiveness, and evaluation of care programs. They emphasize the client/nurse partnership, and advocate for nurses to work politically for the enhancement of health-care delivery services. Their experiences encompass a variety of situations and environments from rural to urban, AIDS care management to chronic disease care. The book design follows a "how to" concept: large size, bold headings, easily read text. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
