Written in an intriguing narrative format, this book demonstrates the skills necessary for effective social work practice in managed care settings. Centered around the case study of a professional ballet dancer who is admitted to a rehabilitation unit following a cerebral stroke, Good But Not Perfect follows the struggles of the patient and her health care team as they confront changes in the health care delivery system. This “story-line” approach engages student interest as it demonstrates the application of theories and the real-life impact of the managed care model.

At the end of each chapter, the “story” is analyzed using conceptual knowledge, and critical thinking is encouraged in practice exercises. Throughout the book, students are guided through the processes of effective patient assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning, discharge, and rehabilitation. They will learn the issues surrounding managed care and will be provided with the skills necessary to function as part of an interdisciplinary health care team.
