  • The nursing process is applied consistently and logically to the discussion of disorders, and appears in complete summary form at the end of applicable chapters.
  • Nursing Diagnoses paired with disorder-appropriate Nursing Interventions are screened and highlighted.
  • Therapeutic Dialogue boxes focus on communication through real-life examples of nurse-patient dialogue.
  • Patient Teaching boxes examine discharge instructions and health promotion for patients and families.
  • Home Health Considerations boxes discuss issues facing patients and caregivers in the home care setting.
  • Older Adult Considerations boxes bring a gerontologic perspective to the analysis of specific disorders.
