Although medical specialization can be credited with many of the advancements of modern medicine, it also poses obstacles to the delivery of healthcare. Such obstacles are increasingly prevalent in the treatment of the chronic conditions and poly-morbidities of aging populations, where specialization can be a barrier to the coordination and cooperation required to provide comprehensive care.

This book specifies these obstacles and clarifies the conditions for overcoming them. It focuses on Advanced Practice Nursing, and benefits from comparisons between French and Japanese situations that have mobilized the authors – both researchers and practitioners – for several years. It argues that APNs can perform the coordinating and cooperation role, but that doing so will require greater institutional openness to innovation, and a systemic change in focus from ‘cure’ to ‘care’.

 

"Thanks to an original approach, this book gives a new light on the challenges and stakes of deploying Advanced Practice by comparing two countries with very different cultures. Differences, of course, but in both cases a common core profession, an innovative nursing profession and a need for solid training to meet the populations’ health needs."
--- Julie Devictor, President of the National Professional Council of Advanced Practice Nurses and editor-in-chief of the "Revue de la Pratique Avancée" (France)

"Nurses play a pivotal role in the develop of integrated healthcare systems and the innovations and the systems improvements required to achieve these new models of care. The authors provide a creative and thoughtful exploration of the advanced practice nurse’s role within the context of this changing environment. This book provides an excellent insight into this important and highly topical area from two different, yet comparable contexts."
--- Sharon Williams, professor at the Swansea Centre for Improvement & Innovation in Health and Social Care, College of Human and Health Sciences, Swansea University (U.K.).
