Product Description:

Highly Commended in the Public Health category of the 2003 BMA Medical Book Competition.

'The book is also helpfully laid out. `Signposts' in right hand margins link issues discussed in different parts of the book. Each chapter has a short summary of contents at the start, an overview at the end and `headline points'- short bullet points designed to reinforce key messages in the reader's mind. The end of each chapter also includes references and further suggested reading... This book will repay study by anyone involved in planning or delivering services for older people- particularly those working to try to implement `joined up' services. From this perspective, the book is genuinely inspirational. It shows how much can be achieved by working in this way and -more importantly- how it was done.'

- Journal of Interprofessional Care

'This is an important book... It needs to be read and understood by everyone involved in caring, but especially by those with the power to influence change- which is increasingly purchasers and senior managers. It also provides a valuable guide to a large literature and has useful examples of questionnaires, data collection forms and clinical vignettes.'

- International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry

'This book is unique and brilliant at the same time. It shows the limits of what any given healthcare professional can accomplish and the amazing, seemingly impossible feats that an effective team caring for older persons can accomplish. The commentary on leadership in healthcare and the ways in which healthcare teams evolve and work is excellent. It is not in the least dry, but rather invigorating as one sees the concepts, values, and visions manifest in clever solutions to problems... It weaves in the history of geriatrics seamlessly. The enthusiastic anticipation in the excellent foreword is amply justified. The concepts here are universal... Every medical library should possess this remarkable book.'

- Doody's Reviews

The authors of this book share their practical experience of implementing a multi-agency approach to the support of older people. They show how systems thinking can help with the complexity of developing a model of care that co-ordinates medical, social and community services. They offer insight into the effective use of on-going assessment, evaluation, costing and information technology, with examples.

They demonstrate how they achieved a `one-stop' rapid response to emergencies and a multi-level approach to risk management. They also show how enabling the older person to become an equal partner in decision-making, both as an individual user and as a citizen, reduces dependency, and can prevent current problems such as overlap and duplication of service and inappropriate admission to hospital and residential care. They offer models of consultation and guidance on running participative groups.

This resource meets the growing need for material on multi-agency practice and is an invaluable tool for all those working across organisational and professional boundaries to deliver an integrated care system for older people.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.

Make A Difference

At Campus Book Rentals our company is guided by a single question, "How are we making education more affordable?" We know that getting a college education is quickly becoming a rite of passage for students and is becoming more important every year. In order to make education more attainable for the 99%, we started renting textbooks so students could avoid high purchase prices and buyback programs. We know it's a better way, and we're going to show everyone how to make a college education affordable again.
