Book Description :

Gain expertise in primary care of older adults with a case-based approach to geriatric primary care and multimorbidity management. Written by two leading academic and clinical experts in geriatric primary care, Case Studies in Geriatric Primary Care and Multimorbidity Management, 1st Edition uses detailed Exemplar Case Studies and Practice Case Studies to teach you how to think like an expert geriatric clinician. Because most older adults have more than one condition when seeking care, both Exemplar and Practice Case Studies place a strong emphasis on "multimorbidity" management, (the management of patients with a host of complex, interacting conditions). To provide extensive practice in learning how to think like an expert, case studies reflect the reality that care does not necessarily begin or end in the primary care setting. Cases therefore move fluidly from primary care to acute care to inpatient rehabilitation to assisted living to long-term care. Building on foundational introductory chapters, cases also call on you to develop interprofessional collaboration skills and reflect the diversity of today's older adults, in terms of age (young-old to old-old), gender, culture, ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomic status, and more! As you work through both basic-level and advanced Practice Case Studies, you can make extensive notes in the printed book and then go online to submit answers for grading and receive expert feedback for self-reflection. NEW! Introductory unit on the core principles of caring for older adults gives you a strong foundation in the principles of geriatric primary care and multimorbidity management. NEW! and UNIQUE! Exceptionally detailed, unfolding Exemplar Case Studies demonstrate how an expert advanced practitioner "thinks clinically" to provide care to older adults with multiple conditions. NEW and UNIQUE!

Book Description :

Value driven healthcare is the lasting legacy of the Affordable Care Act, which had three goals: to improve access to healthcare by increasing healthcare insurance coverage, to improve the patient’s experience and quality of care, and to slow the rate of increase in healthcare costs. Regardless of changes to the financing of healthcare or changes in policy, value-based purchasing for healthcare is to remain a constant feature of the healthcare horizon. Value-based purchasing is a demand side strategy to reward quality in health care delivery. Value-based purchasing involves cost considerations and includes the actions of employers, the public sector, health plans, and individual consumers in making healthcare decisions. Effective health care services and high performing health care providers are incentivized to provide quality outcomes and to control cost. Value-based purchasing drives quality metrics which are publicly reported and serve as important levers for changes in healthcare delivery. Geriatric patients consume a disproportionate share of healthcare resources, so CMS directs Medicare and drives geriatric healthcare models. All other insurers generally model CMS/Medicare guidelines. Innovative geriatric care models which demonstrate improved outcomes and cost moderation are scaled and lessons learned used to create new healthcare models. The best data for broader value driven healthcare comes from the geriatric models, which currently have the best data available. This book traces the origins of value-based purchasing and current geriatric care models and synthesizes their implications for today's changing health system. It also discusses healthcare accountability and risk sharing. The audience includes geriatric healthcare professionals, but also a wider audience interested in broader healthcare models and value driven healthcare from a policy, economic, and ethical perspective. These include primary care physicians, specialists who work with aging patients, hospital administrators, healthcare educators, healthcare organizations, and all medical professionals working with aging patients and patients affected by healthcare reform.

Book Description :

This book provides a comprehensive and systematic state-of-the science review of major primary care delivery models, how they address specific needs of older adults, and available evidence for their efficacy. Written by experts in the field, this book explores the patient-centered medical home model (PCMH) in depth and dives into the complexities of the “medical neighborhood”. It describes and analyzes primary care specifically directed toward special, complex populations, such as the Health Home for safety net patients with mental health needs, and intensive primary care for older adults. It reviews an array of primary care models related to dual eligible patients including the GRACE primary care consultation model and PACE models. It describes primary care with Advanced Practice Nurses and Physician Assistants and explores in-depth the massive effort within the VA to develop the Patient Activated Care Team (PACT), a VA form of the PCMH that also has several offshoots that address complex older veterans and veterans with severe mental illness. Finally, it illuminates rarely discussed primary care that occurs within the home and within long-term care. Throughout the entire book, experts navigate the workforce, care quality, and financing challenges of primary care for older adults. Primary Care for Older Adults is a valuable resource for clinicians, researchers, patients, caregivers and their advocates, and policy makers who have an interest in designing, promoting, and implementing high quality primary care for older adults.

Book Description :

Psychology and Geriatrics demonstrates the value of integrating psychological knowledge and insight with medical training and geriatric care. Leading physician and geropsychologist contributors come together to share their collective wisdom about topics that are as emotionally uncomfortable as they are universally relevant. As the world struggles to respond to unprecedented gains in life expectancy and an explosion of new retirees living with chronic health conditions, this collaboration could not be more timely. This exceptional resource is, itself, evidence that physicians and psychologists can work together to optimize truly patient-centered geriatric care. Here at last is a scientifically rigorous, evidence-based response to the aging mind and body from those most expertly trained. Illustrates why and how psychologists must assume a more integrated role in meeting the health care needs of older patients Confronts emotionally laden topics such as cognitively impaired driving, caregiver burden, end-of-life communication, suicide, and systemic issues such as bias, payment, and the culture of medicine Challenges decades-long barriers to integration, from both physician and psychologist perspectives, suggesting how they can finally be overcome Provides an innovative, practical response to academic medicine's growing emphasis on psychological and behavioral science Demonstrates how health care reform creates a behavioral health niche that clinical psychologists are uniquely qualified to fill
