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. Updating life care planning references, the third edition presents new chapters on home assessments, vehicle modification, day-in-the-life videos, and elder care. This edition also adds several new contributors who have completely rewritten or updated several chapters. The text offers an overview of issues relevant to selected disabilities, bringing together various concepts of life care plans into one publication and reviewing current thoughts, beliefs, and procedures.

The book 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. Next, the book offers up-to-date information on the disabilities most frequently encountered by the life care planner. The contributors also address issues typically left out of similar texts which have been made critical by Daubert v. Merrell Dow in the forensic setting  ― issues related to ethics, standards, research and credentials.
