Summary The purpose of this manual, a companion volume to "A Hospital Practice Primer for Psychologists," is to provide information and strategies that will help promote more effective utilization of psychologists in the hospital environment. It is directed to psychologists in independent practice who wish to gain access to hospital settings as well as to those working in a hospital as salaried staff. It is intended to serve as a blueprint for confronting many of the obstacles that have inhibited psychologists' full professional participation in hospitals. /// "Hospital Practice: Advocacy Issues" includes an historical overview of psychologists' roles in hospitals and other settings. It also outlines the steps psychologists must take in order to determine the current status of hospital practice opportunities within their states as well as ways to identify and use resources that help them gain hospital practice privileges. This manual focuses primarily on local issues of hospital practice; it does not address state or federal policy issues regarding health services reimbursement under Medicare and Medicaid. Depending on a psychologist's background and training, some sections of this work will be more pertinent than others. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved).
