Summary: Foundations of Adult Health Nursing is written following the Nursing Process format. The clinical chapters have been revised to include Nursing Management sections for each disorder, emphasizing the nurse's role in providing competent client care. Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) and Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) have been identified in each Nursing Care Plan. A Case Study included in each chapter uses critical thinking questions to assist the user
through the nursing process and to develop a customized plan of care for the client in the scenario. The last chapter, Integration, has been included to assist the user in understanding the complexity of human illness, and how a disorder in one body system affects other body systems. Special features throughout the book are specially designed to emphasize specific information, such as: Life Cycle Considerations, Client Teaching, Infection Control, Safety, Community/Home Health Care, Cultural Considerations, and Professional Tips. Critical Thinking Questions are included throughout the book to encourage the user to apply the chapter's content. At the end of each chapter, readers will find a Summary and Review Questions, along with References/Suggested Readings and Resources.

Benefits:
  • Nursing Care Plans now include NIC/NOC references, to reflect current practice.
  • Nursing Management sections are now included in all Nursing Process sections (parallel to the current Medical-Surgical Management head); this emphasizes the nurse's responsibilities in delivering safe, effective, and competent care.
  • Pharmacology content is highlighted with an icon and a description of the nurse's role.
  • Special boxes emphasize specific information: Life Cycle Considerations, Client Teaching, Infection Control, Safety, Community/Home Health Care, Cultural Considerations, Professional Tip, and Critical Thinking Questions
  • Full Color: Adds realism to the superb illustrations and photos
  • New Collaborative Care boxes reinforce the importance of the nurse as a member of the multidisciplinary health care team.
