Guided Care is an exciting new model used to provide medical and nursing care to clients with chronic conditions. This model works by (1) providing the services of a Guided Care Nurse, as the point of service, within a primary care physican's office, or within a pool of primary care physician's offices, and (2) providing for the certification of the Gudied Care nurse.

This book provides physicians, nurses, administrators, and leaders of health care organizations with practical, step-by-step guidance for adopting Guided Care Nursing to transform typical primary care practices into medical homes that provide excellent comprehensive health care for patients with chronic conditions. It presents essential information about all the processes needed to make this transformation successful: evaluating readiness to adopt, preparing to adopt, acquiring the components of the Guided Care model, and integrating Guided Care into existing practices.
