Overview

This valuable resource provides the nurse manager or clinician with an informative guide on how to assess an organization's readiness for nursing case management, prepare a plan to achieve necessary changes, implement the plan, and evaluate its success. Like the first edition, the second edition not only describes the historical development of case management, but also provides useful examples from institutions that have successfully implemented a nursing case management model. New chapters address topics such as the current managed care environment, information technology and ethical issues. A new unit, "Clinical Outcomes", addresses the increasing demand for information on measurable outcomes.
