Life Care Planning is an advanced collaborative practice concerned with coordinating, accessing, evaluating, and monitoring necessary services for individuals with significant medical adversity. This handbook provides a comprehensive resource for all people involved with catastrophic impairments who need to solve complex medical care problems. Life Care Planning and Case Management Handbook begins by defining the roles played by each of the key team members working with the life care planner. It provides planners with insights critical to successful interactions with medical and health-related professionals as well as the team members they are most likely to encounter as they work to build a successful and accurate life care plan.
