Nursing and nursing education : public policies and private actions by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

6 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Results are presented of a study of nursing and nursing education that focused on the need for continued federal support of nursing education, ways to attract nurses to medically underserved areas, and approaches to encourage nurses to stay in the profession. Findings are presented on whether the aggregate supply of generalist nurses will be sufficient to meet future demand, and how changes that could occur in the health care system might affect demand. Attention is also directed to: how the current and future supply of nurses may be influenced by the costs of nursing education and the sources of education financing; and education for generalist positions in nursing. In addition, the supply and demand situation for nurses educationally prepared for advanced professional positions in nursing is examined. The influence of employer policies and practices in utilization of nursing resources on demand and supply is also addressed. Finally, areas in which further data and studies are needed to better monitor nursing supply and demand are identified. In addition to 21 recommendations, appendices include information on Nursing Training Act appropriations, state reports on nursing issues, certificates for specialist registered nurses, projections of registered nurse supply and requirements, and doctoral programs in nursing.

"Calling the Shots provides an analysis of the finance strategies that shape the scope and quality of immunization services for children and adults in the changing U.S. health care system. This volume, rich with data and highlighted examples, explores several critical areas, including: The evolution of the immunization system in light of changing U.S. demographics, development of new vaccines, and other factors. The scope of coverage for selected vaccines within public and private health insurance plans, with special emphasis on the performance of the"Section 317" program in meeting the needs of uninsured, and underinsured, groups. The role of federal and state governments in shaping and sustaining the public health infrastructure for immunization programs. The integration of public health and health finance efforts in seeking to control and prevent infectious disease, survey vaccine coverage levels and safety concerns, and improve coverage rates among under-served populations." "Calling the Shots will be an indispensable resource to those responsible for maintaining our nation's vaccine vigilance."--Jacket

Health services research : report of a study by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

5 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Health services research has suffered because of unrealistic expecta- tions of what it could provide in the way of easy answers for policy- makers in the health field. There are no quick fixes for problems of health manpower and distribution or cost containment. This means that it is enourmously important to know much more than we do about the complex variety of factors affecting our health care system if we are to make sensible policy decisions. We need to know what we are talk- ing about, and for this reason the report gives a proper definition of health services research. Health services research is a field and not a discipline and this means that by its very nature it is multi- disciplinary. The report strongly supports the continuation of the national center for health services research without either reorgani- zation or relocation
