Outside the Hospital
The Delivery of Health Care in Non-hospital Settings
Outside the Hospital by Donald J. Griffin
Book DescriptionWhile the hospital is the centerpiece of the health care system, so much health care is delivered outside this setting. As the first text of its kind, Outside the Hospital introduces the reader to many types of healthcare services offered outside the traditional hospital setting. Divided into four parts (traditional care, diagnosing, acute-care treatment, and chronic care), the book offers 31 concise chapters that explore the basic operations of various health care settings such as physician offices, pharmacies, outpatient laboratories, chiropractic centers, dentistry, optometry, oncology centers, adult day care, hospice care, and more. Perfect as a companion to Hospitals: What They Are and How They Work, also by Don Griffin, this text is an ideal introduction to the health care workplace for aspiring health professionals. It is also an excellent reference for the practicing health professional. Features: Offers concise chapters on 31 types of health care services delivered outside the hospital setting. Offers key vocabulary words, chapter review questions, and materials for group discussion in each chapter. Is accompanied by downloadable instructor resources including chapter lecture slides, as well as a midterm and final exam.
