Shared Care A Model for Clinical Management

    Using practical examples this book demonstrates how a theoretical model for shared care operates in practice to deliver improved health outcomes within limited resources. It shows how clinically-led initiatives can influence health care commissioning strategies and how the implementation of the model meets the needs of clinicians purchasers and providers. The model and evaluation protocols advocated here provide a firm foundation for the development of shared care in the future.
