This reader-friendly and insightful work provides a broad definition of long-term care as it relates to the role of major players including, among others, nurses, physicians, and medical directors. Laura Randa King discusses the key long-term care customers such as consultant and provider pharmacists, and then presents the influences of everyone from buying groups to medical directors. Long-Term Care embarks upon a frank discussion of changing patient needs including geriatric concerns and rising expenditures, and poses an in-depth analysis of current legislation and policy issues of quality, cost, and accessibility as they impact the long-term market. It is a useful text for nursing and medical students, managed care organizations, and pharmaceutical companies among others.
