Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"I am thrilled with your new text. I am especially pleased with the brand new chapters on health literacy, adherence, multiculturalism, and obesity. These are very timely and are just not to be found in other current texts on case management. The book is very comprehensive and examines case management across the health continuum and in different practice areas i.e. community health."

"I plan to use your text in my graduate course entitled: “Evidence-based Practice for Case Managers” to be taught in the Spring. This fresh and timely information is exactly what the case management profession has been seeking over the past several years...The book is truly a great resource for new and experienced case managers."
