Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sharon Mass, PhD (Cedars-Sinai Medical Center)
Description: The authors have designed a forward thinking case management practice model for nurse-social work collaboration which can deepen and broaden our knowledge base of providing health care on a continuum, while at the same time help patients and families gain the skill it takes to become managers of their own care.
Purpose: The authors propose a model for nurse-social worker collaboration as caregivers and service deliverers in communities in the 21st century. This partnering of nurse and social work interventions can meet the two most important mandates of managed care, effectiveness and efficiency, and still provide the quality services expected by clients. In today's economic healthcare environment, where the patient hardly figures in the equation of healthcare delivery, this client focused model stresses empowerment, self determination, and autonomy. This book succeeds in capturing both substance and process in the development of an important case management model. This is an important book.
Audience: This book will be useful to practitioners and students, and should be a recommended text for nursing/social work educators. I concur fully with the recommendation that the nursing and social work professions consider the implementation of this collaborative model to improve service delivery to consumers, whomever they might be.
Features: The quality and pertinence of the illustrations are appropriate to the text. The references are current and equally representative of both the nursing and social work professions. The quantity and quality of experts cited and referenced is formidable. This is a well organized, easy to read, attractive volume. The appendix provides important information regarding respondents to the survey used to develop the model of practice.
Assessment: This is an important study that provides a wealth of information for professionals and other educators who strive to present a balanced approach to delivering quality case management services when a number of professions already see theirs as the primary discipline providing this service. With candor and a genuine awareness of client need, the book provides a proper model of intervention which blends the best of both disciplines into a practice model which can only enhance the client's functioning and quality of life. I would recommend purchase of this volume by healthcare organizations, schools of nursing and social work, and clinicians. Given the current climate and the demands of healthcare practice, the need for this volume is self evident.
