Provider Assumptions about Long-Term Care in American Indian Communities.
Manson, Spero M.
Gerontologist, v29 n3 p355-58 Jun 1989
Surveyed 208 Indian Health Service providers and allied personnel to examine extent to which they subscribed to myths about long-term care. With some exception, found long-term care equated with the nursing home, perceived as involving essentially health care professionals; service objectives were assumed to be primarily rehabilitative and protective.
