Hot off the presses, CPC Press has published a new book entitled Pediatric Life Care Planning and Case Management, edited by Susan Riddick-Grisham. This forty-five chapter book, authored by many of the leading experts in the field, covers such topics as the role of life care team members, chronic conditions and disability states and forensic considerations. Also included are chapters which discuss special issues such as education law, cultural considerations, medacaid and funding sources as well as ethical and morale issues in caring for special needs children. I particulraly enjoyed the chapter entitled, Use of the Life Care Plan in a Lawsuit Involving a Child.
