Life Care Planning is an advanced collaborative practice concerned with coordinating, accessing, evaluating, and monitoring necessary services for individuals with significant medical adversity. This handbook provides a comprehensive resource for all people involved with catastrophic impairments who need to solve complex medical care problems. Updating life care planning references, the third edition presents new chapters on home assessments, vehicle modification, day-in-the-life videos, and elder care. This edition also adds several new contributors who have completely rewritten or updated several chapters. The text offers an overview of issues relevant to selected disabilities, bringing together various concepts of life care plans into one publication and reviewing current thoughts, beliefs, and procedures.

The book begins by defining the roles played by each of the key team members working with the life care planner. It provides planners with insights critical to successful interactions with medical and health-related professionals as well as the team members they are most likely to encounter as they work to build a successful and accurate life care plan. Next, the book offers up-to-date information on the disabilities most frequently encountered by the life care planner. The contributors also address issues typically left out of similar texts which have been made critical by Daubert v. Merrell Dow in the forensic setting — issues related to ethics, standards, research and credentials.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK • America’s Bitter Pill is Steven Brill’s acclaimed book on how the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, was written, how it is being implemented, and, most important, how it is changing—and failing to change—the rampant abuses in the healthcare industry. It’s a fly-on-the-wall account of the titanic fight to pass a 961-page law aimed at fixing America’s largest, most dysfunctional industry. It’s a penetrating chronicle of how the profiteering that Brill first identified in his trailblazing Time magazine cover story continues, despite Obamacare. And it is the first complete, inside account of how President Obama persevered to push through the law, but then failed to deal with the staff incompetence and turf wars that crippled its implementation.
 
But by chance America’s Bitter Pill ends up being much more—because as Brill was completing this book, he had to undergo urgent open-heart surgery. Thus, this also becomes the story of how one patient who thinks he knows everything about healthcare “policy” rethinks it from a hospital gurney—and combines that insight with his brilliant reporting. The result: a surprising new vision of how we can fix American healthcare so that it stops draining the bank accounts of our families and our businesses, and the federal treasury.

“An energetic, picaresque, narrative explanation of much of what has happened in the last seven years of health policy . . . [Brill] has pulled off something extraordinary.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“A thunderous indictment of what Brill refers to as the ‘toxicity of our profiteer-dominated healthcare system.’ ”—Los Angeles Times
 
“A sweeping and spirited new book [that] chronicles the surprisingly juicy tale of reform.”—The Daily Beast
