Book Description :

Health Reform Policy to Practice: Oregon as a Case Study for a Path to a Comprehensive and Sustainable Health Delivery Model offers a real world example of an innovative, successful and comprehensive program conducted by the U.S. State of Oregon. In 1991, Oregon embarked on a journey to improve health for all its citizens by radically re-thinking how to approach health care for long-term benefits. Over more than two decades, Oregonians have participated in a dialogue to create a new approach to solve the dilemma of providing high quality health care that is affordable and effective. Traditionally, health care reform looked at cutting people from care, cutting provider rates or cutting services. Oregon’s approach is unique in that it built a new system of delivery from the ground (community) up. The Oregon model took a “Fourth Path to health care by redesigning the clinical delivery system through reducing waste, improving individual health and prevention, and therefore reducing utilization of services, creating local accountability, aligning financial incentives and creating fiscal accountability. This is not only an Oregon story, but a national one as other states, payers and purchasers implement health care reform. Written by content experts who have been actively involved in health care reform efforts Provides clear translation of current information and experience to implementation Explores the potential impact of the Oregon experience on national and international health care reform efforts

Book Description :

Integrating Social Care into the Delivery of Health Care: Moving Upstream to Improve the Nation's Health was released in September 2019, before the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic in March 2020. Improving social conditions remains critical to improving health outcomes, and integrating social care into health care delivery is more relevant than ever in the context of the pandemic and increased strains placed on the U.S. health care system. The report and its related products ultimately aim to help improve health and health equity, during COVID-19 and beyond. The consistent and compelling evidence on how social determinants shape health has led to a growing recognition throughout the health care sector that improving health and health equity is likely to depend â€" at least in part â€" on mitigating adverse social determinants. This recognition has been bolstered by a shift in the health care sector towards value-based payment, which incentivizes improved health outcomes for persons and populations rather than service delivery alone. The combined result of these changes has been a growing emphasis on health care systems addressing patients' social risk factors and social needs with the aim of improving health outcomes. This may involve health care systems linking individual patients with government and community social services, but important questions need to be answered about when and how health care systems should integrate social care into their practices and what kinds of infrastructure are required to facilitate such activities. Integrating Social Care into the Delivery of Health Care: Moving Upstream to Improve the Nation's Health examines the potential for integrating services addressing social needs and the social determinants of health into the delivery of health care to achieve better health outcomes. This report assesses approaches to social care integration currently being taken by health care providers and systems, and new or emerging approaches and opportunities; current roles in such integration by different disciplines and organizations, and new or emerging roles and types of providers; and current and emerging efforts to design health care systems to improve the nation's health and reduce health inequities.

Book Description :

With nearly 40% of social workers working in the health and behavioral health care sectors, Social Work and Integrated Health Care is designed to help social workers understand the policies that shape the current discussion regarding integrated primary care and behavioral health care and their application to practice. While the future of Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) is uncertain at this time, the potential for integrated health care to simultaneously improve health outcomes while reducing costs means that despite the constantly changing health policy landscape, the movement towards an integrated health care system will continue in the future. As these changes occur, there is a great need in the social work field for resources that will give both the context for these changes and translate the policies to day-to-day social work practice. This book provides essential information about the important shifts in the health care field with a focus on health care for vulnerable populations, with a special emphasis on adults with severe mental illnesses and substance abuse disorders. As the title indicates, the book provides a comprehensive discussion not only of critical policy issues, but also their specific implications to evidence-based clinical practice. It covers such areas as background on public funding for health care, the development of behavioral health services in the community, and the passage of mental health parity legislation. The text also includes an overview of integrated health care settings and describes evidence practices that are central to integrated health care such as screening, person-centered care planning, motivational interviewing, and wellness self-management. It is a must-have text for all social work students in MSW programs.

Book Description :

Despite the scope and sophistication of contemporary health care, there is increasing international concern about the perceived lack of compassion in its delivery. Citing evidence that when the basic needs of patients are attended to with kindness and understanding, recovery often takes place at a faster level, patients cope more effectively with the self-management of chronic disorders and can more easily overcome anxiety associated with various disorders, this book looks at how good care can be put back into the process of caring. Beginning with an introduction to the historical values associated with the concept of compassion, the text goes on to provide a bio-psycho-social theoretical framework within which the concept might be further explained. The third part presents thought-provoking case studies and explores the implementation and impact of compassion in a range of healthcare settings. The fourth part investigates the role that organizations and their structures can play in promoting or hindering the provision of compassion. The book concludes by discussing how compassion may be taught and evaluated, and suggesting ways for increasing the attention paid to compassion in health care. Developing a multi-disciplinary theory of compassionate care, and underpinned by empirical examples of good practice, this volume is a valuable resource for all those interesting in understanding and supporting compassion in health care, including advanced students, academics and practitioners within medicine, nursing, psychology, allied health, sociology and philosophy.

Book Description :

Since the early 1990s, long-term care policies have undergone significant transformations across OECD countries. In some countries these changes have responded to the introduction of major policy reforms while in others, significant transformations have come about through the accumulation of incremental policy changes. The book brings together evidence from over 15 years of care reform to examine changes in long-term care systems occurring in OECD countries. It discusses and compares key changes in national policies and examines the main successes and failures of recent reforms. Finally, it suggests possible policy strategies for the future in the sector. With contributions from a wide range of experts across EECD countries, this book is essential reading for academics, researchers and policy-makers in the field of long-term care policy.

Book Description :

The health care of a growing older adult population is a crucial issue, and one of increasing concern and cost. This text explores the health system's effect on health care and professional practice on societal, institutional, and health team levels. It also clarifies models of disciplinary collaboration, and the contributions of the interdisciplinary model. It relates clinical and non-clinical disciplines and facilitates change toward a more synergistic and effective health system. This book addresses its key issues in two ways: First, it explores the present health care system and how it shapes the health care that older adults receive and the practices of their health professionals. Second, it explores five models of collaboration among health disciplines and how they differ in terms of mutual understanding, extent of collaboration, overlap and flexibility of roles, and openness to incorporating knowledge and skills from one another. This text aims to help health professionals, policy makers, and citizens understand the health system, how it shapes the health care they receive and can provide, and how to improve it. It also introduces clinicians and non-clinicians to one another's responsibilities and functions so that they can develop a more synergistic and harmonious health system.

Book Description :

"There is a plethora of policy books on the market, but none illustrate the steps in the policy process better than this one. The high caliber editors and contributors, all of whom have been involved in policy work, bring years of experience to illustrate the key points... This publication is timely as the shift in healthcare requires input from all health professionals, but especially nurses who are at the frontline of healthcare change and delivery. This outstanding resource will help motivate many more nurses to get involved in the policy process... Weighted Numerical Score: 93 - 4 Stars!"--Doody's Medical Reviews Written by those in the know–exceptional nurse leaders in practice, education, and politics–this is a practical, "how-to" book written to help advanced students and nurse leaders develop health policy skills to advocate for patients from the bedside to the larger political arena. Co-published with the American Nurses Association (ANA), the book examines the pivotal role of nurses' involvement in health policy and describes the requisite steps for facilitating policy change–from understanding the political system through activating a plan and beyond. It features the voices of a wide variety of nurse leaders who discuss policy work both locally and nationally through descriptive case histories. The book discusses those qualities and skill sets that are needed for advocacy at the bedside and other arenas where health policy is determined. It examines the political system and opportunities for nurse involvement, and clarifies the process of identifying issues that need a policy solution. Because citing research is an integral component of health policy solutions, the book describes how research can be used to strengthen policy initiatives. The book guides the reader step by step through the process of creating a work plan and describes the resources needed to accomplish policy change. Activating an action plan and strategies for working with the media are covered, along with the process of taking a leadership role, evaluating outcomes, using policy to eliminate health inequities, and maintaining and expanding momentum. Woven throughout the book are the major themes of ethics, leadership, safety, and the quest for quality of care. The text provides information and perspectives relevant to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) doctor of nursing practice (DNP) Essentials, and includes multimedia electronic links to resources (podcasts, online articles, social network resources, and key political websites) that promote policy research and leadership development. KEY FEATURES: Delineates the steps to becoming a policy advocate in organizational, educational, and political settings Written by noted nurse leaders who describe policy work locally and nationally Presents competencies for nursing policy work derived from the AACN DNP Essentials Focuses throughout on themes of ethics, leadership, quality, and safety Facilitates web use for policy research and development Ancillary materials from the editors are available

Praise for the First Edition: "There are many policy books, but none are written by APRNs or focus just on APRN practice...APRNs are at the core, or can be, if they use their practice knowledge and education to shape policy...[The] editors eloquently make the case that policy formation is a critical nursing skill." --Doody's Medical Reviews The only book of its kind, this text offers a wealth of information about the role of all types of APRNs (NPs, CNSs, CNMs, and CRNAs) in influencing the development and application of health care policy in a wide range of specialties. Featuring nine completely new chapters, the second edition delivers an invigorated focus on developing policy that advocates for vulnerable populations and discusses how the incorporation of interprofessional education has changed and will continue to alter health policy in the U.S. and internationally. The text also discusses the evolving influence of the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the implications of current and future health policy changes that will be impacting the practice of various APRN roles. Authored by APRN luminaries who have been closely involved with health policy development, the text meets the requirements of the IOM report on The Future of Nursing and the DNP criteria V for the inclusion of health policy and advocacy in the curriculum. This "call to action" for APRNs is specifically designed for courses enrolling students from a variety of APRN trajectories, and includes content from all APRN role perspectives in every section. New to the Second Edition: Emphasizes policy development advocating for vulnerable populations Discusses the current and future influence of interprofessional educaton on health policy in the U.S. and worldwide Addresses how health policy changes will impact the various APRN roles Includes nine new chapters on: Health Policy and its Effect on Large Systems, Value-Based Purchasing, Health Care Reform and Independent Practice, Health Policy Implications Regarding Substance Abuse/PTSD Treatment, Genetics, Competency Issues, and The International Council of Nurses Key Features: Addresses role-specific policy needs of all four APRN roles and DNPs Encompasses all requisite information about health care policy and reform in the U.S. and worldwide and its impact on advanced practice nursing Meets the requirements of IOM’s The Future of Nursing and DNP criteria V Explains how and why APRNs can and should influence policy development Discusses implications of not participating in health policy decisions
