281 pages5 hours


The contributors to this volume provide an overview of each component of the acute and long-term care service continuum, including managed health care, subacute care, nursing homes, community care case management, and private case management. This volume is one of the first efforts to place these varied approaches side-by-side, highlighting the gaps and areas of duplication in the services delivery system. In addition, chapters address the emerging practices in long-term care financing and assisted living as well as the conceptual issues that need to be resolved to achieve acute and chronic care integration. This volume is of primary importance to professionals involved in long-term care, including administration, community nursing, social work, case management, discharge planning and policy.
