Current Practices in High-Tech Home Care
This book offers convenient access to information about the benefits, drawbacks and challenges of importing high-technology medical care into the home care programs. It is both a descriptive report of research-based observations, and an interpretive analysis of major issues and policies in the delivery of technology-enhanced care. The authors bring to the forefront evidence-based current home care practices, such as ventilator therapy and artificial nutrition infusion pumps, and develop them through complete discussions of legal, ethical and administrative issues they entail. Agency administrators as well as in-home direct service providers like nurses and social workers, will find essential information on a critical home care delivery issue presented with clarity and accessibility.
