Named a 2013 Doody's Core Title! The trend toward patient self-management (PSM) of chronic disease is accelerating at a rapid pace along with the evolution of home-based or mobile technologies to support this care. Yet the development of self-management practice standards and advanced practice nursing support has been haphazard. This book fills a glaring void by addressing, against a backdrop of current best practices in PSM, such questions as: What are appropriate standards of safety in PSM? How can we be assured those standards are met? How does one reach a good prognosis about whether or not patients will be able to practice PSM? What level of effectiveness and efficiency should PSM reach to be considered a good policy option? Grounded in a clear ethical practice framework for PSM regimens, the text discusses PSM of the major chronic diseases along with best practice intervention strategies. The text maps out the implementation of the PSM framework for both patient and institution, supported by numerous case examples. Also addressed are PSM challenges to Advanced Practice Nursing, three ethically valid assessment tools, and relevant health policy concerns. Offering study questions and answers, the text is designed for course adoption and as a resource at MSN, DNP, and PhD levels Key Features: Presents clear ethical practice framework for PSM regimens Explores PSM in the major chronic diseases along with case studies Discusses PSM challenges to Advanced Practice Nursing Provides three ethically valid assessment tools Useful for course adoption and a resource at MSN, DNP, and PhD levels
