Managed Care: Practice Strategies for Nursing
Of all the recent changes in health care, none more dramatically affected both patients and care providers than managed care. Not only has it altered the way we pay for health care, but also it has compelled a change in the way we approach health care, focusing increasingly on preventive care to reduce costs. In this book, the author and her colleagues examine the impact of managed care on nursing as a profession and nurses as individual caregivers.
Managed Care: Practice Strategies for Nursing will serve as an excellent course text on nursing and managed care, as well as a useful introduction and shelf reference for professional nurses at all levels of practice.
