Description

Breakthroughs in medical science and technology, combined with shifts in lifestyle and demographics, have resulted in a rapid rise in the number of individuals living with one or more chronic illnesses.

Comprehensive Care Coordination for Chronically Ill Adults presents thorough demographics on this growing sector, describes models for change, reviews current literature and examines various outcomes.

Comprehensive Care Coordination for Chronically Ill Adults is divided into two parts. The first provides thorough discussion and background on theoretical concepts of care, including a complete profile of current demographics and chapters on current models of care, intervention components, evaluation methods, health information technology, financing, and educating an interdisciplinary team. The second part of the book uses multiple case studies from various settings to illustrate successful comprehensive care coordination in practice. Nurse, physician and social work leaders in community health, primary care, education and research, and health policy makers will find this book essential among resources to improve care for the chronically ill.
