Summary

This book presents the theories and concepts of aging, the physiologic and psychosocial changes and problems associated with the process, and appropriate nursing interventions. The 3rd edition includes expanded content on delegation, leadership, and management, ethical and legal issues, and a new chapter on end-of-life care. Many new features have been added, such as Cultural Considerations, Complementary and Alternative Therapies, Delegation Considerations, and Patient Teaching boxes. This book is part of the LPN Threads series.

Clear, concise, consistent writing throughout
Nursing Process section (in appropriate chapters) provides a strong framework for the discussion of the nursing care of the elderly patient as related to specific disorders
Essential ethical and legal issues are presented as they relate to end-of-life care, restraints, and elder abuse
Clinical Situations provide individualized cases for students to study and learn from
Nursing Interventions are grouped according to health care setting to make it easier to determine the appropriateness of individual interventions for different patient populations
All-in-one Student Activities workbook is included in a perforated section at the back of the book and includes NCLEX-style multiple-choice questions as well as the new NCLEX-style questions (short-answer and fill-in-the-blank) to help students review chapter content and prepare for the NCLEX exam (answers are found in the Instructor's Resource Manual)

New chapter on end-of-life care addresses essential content for both institutional and the home setting, including information on palliative and hospice care, painmanagement, and how belief systems affect the dying person and caregiver(s)
Delegation, leadership, and management content is integrated throughout to address the changing role of LPN/LVNs
Delegation Considerations boxes address such topics as restraints, elder abuse, and end-of-life care as related to responsibilities of nursing assistants and other health care workers who are supervised by LPN/LVNs
Second color added to the design adds visual appeal and helps to emphasize key content
Cultural Considerations boxes help students understand how to provide culturally sensitive patient care
Complementary and Alternative Therapy boxes address popular therapies that are used in pain relief and other treatments
Patient Teaching boxes instruct and inform both elderly patients and their caregivers about health promotion, prevention, and age-specific interventions
Critical Thinking boxes pose questions designed to stimulate thought and help students develop and improve their ability to think critically
