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.

Integrated Care in Psychiatry: Redefining the Role of Mental Health Professionals in the Medical Setting is a landmark title in the field, offering a clear, detailed, and cohesive call by leading experts for coordinated care for patients with concurrent psychiatric and medical conditions. The renowned editors and authors argue that what is slowly occurring, and greatly needed at a faster pace, is nothing less than a sea change in the way that psychiatric care will be delivered. The current, mostly segregated, medical and psychiatric model of care has led to the development of competing medical and psychiatric subcultures that have resulted in a lack of dialog among health providers, administrators, and payers – and thus in less than optimal patient outcomes. To remedy this problem, the book offers a practical, insightful road map to achieving the central tenet of health reform – truly coordinated, patient-centered care where the care experience for the patient, the medical care itself, and the cost outcomes improve as the system changes from fee-for-service to population-based health. An invaluable reference for all clinicians, policy makers, payers, administrators, and others interested in the debate surrounding healthcare systems, Integrated Care in Psychiatry: Redefining the Role of Mental Health Professionals in the Medical Setting is a major contribution to the literature and a gold standard resource.
