Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gayle J. Acton, PhD, RNC (University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing)
Description: This book is a review of research on complementary health and pain management. It is the 17th volume in a series of nursing research reviews. Each volume focuses on selected areas of clinical nursing practice with additional information on a range of other research topics.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide readers a comprehensive review of research concerning complementary therapies (music therapy, sleep promotion, guided imagery, and patient-centered communication), pain management (acute, chronobiology, chronopharmacology, chronotherapeutics, and low back pain) , and other research including wandering in dementia, cognitive interventions for older adults, primary healthcare, uncertainty in chronic illness, and nursing research in Italy.
Audience: The book is useful for graduate students, advanced practice nurses, and researchers.
Features: The overall design of the book is pleasing. The research for each chapter is summarized by different nurse scholars, so writing styles differ. Each chapter contains an abstract and keywords useful for future referencing. Some of the chapters contain tables and figures which are helpful to the reader.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource for graduate students, advanced practice nurses, and researchers. Each chapter contains a comprehensive review of the research for a particular topic making it an invaluable resource for persons needing a summarization, and in some cases, synthesis of the research domain of a particular topic. Many of the chapters include recommendations for future research. Overall, this is an excellent reference, well-researched and well-written.

Booknews
This year's 12 contributions consider the particular topic of the volume but also survey other areas of clinical nursing practice; henceforth each volume in the series will focus more tightly on a general theme. Among the topics are music therapy, early interventions in chronic low back pain, wandering in dementia, and nursing research in Italy. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
