"This timely collection of writings addresses the need for outcomes assessment in health care delivery in this era of managed care. . . . This excellent book is written at a level appropriate for study by senior students in nursing leadership and management courses; it will be most valuable to graduate students in nursing management courses and for professionals in management roles." --Choice Designed to provoke critical thinking, Outcomes of Effective Management Practice provides a futuristic outlook on the condition of health care's effort to respond to criticisms and demands from health regulatory bodies, payers, and consumers. This volume provides readers with cutting-edge thinking and organizational efforts to define and classify outcomes, test approaches to outcomes management, and apply outcomes-related research into health care practice and management. In the first section, a framework for viewing concepts and issues that link health care outcomes and management practice is provided. Contributors overview and present the systematic evaluation of interventions, issues related to ongoing health care reform and trends toward ambulatory care, and the highly publicized Medical Outcomes Studies. Next, the process of methodological issues is explored as it is associated with outcomes measurement and management. The final section focuses on evaluation of outcomes management in a variety of settings such as neonatal intensive care, long-term care, rehabilitation, and acute care settings. Thought-provoking and innovative, Outcomes of Effective Management Practice is essential reading for health care providers and managers as well as educators and advanced students interested in managing outcomes of effective management practice.
