Introducing home-based medical care

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

As the population ages, home-based medical care becomes increasingly important in the care of frail, functionally impaired older adults. Unfortunately, formal education in home-based medical care is limited, and misconceptions abound. This book is intended to be a practical clinical reference for health care providers who practice medicine in the home. Home-based medical care is highly relevant to the evolving health service delivery system in the USA, but terminology related to this field can be confusing. We adopt the term “home-based medical care” to emphasize the relevance of this practice model as part of the contemporary health care system.
