Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Marquis D. Foreman, PhD, RN, FAAN (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Nursing)
Description: This is a book of basic geriatric nursing content.
Purpose: According to the author, the intent is to provide a guide to basic bedside care of the older client from a health promotion perspective.
Audience: The target audience is licensed practical or vocational nurses (LPNs/LVNs).
Features: The book consists of 15 chapters organized around five units: the role of the nurse, four chapters; promoting physical health, seven chapters; promoting psychosocial health, one chapter; special challenges, two chapters; and leadership/management skills, one chapter. Each of the chapters is organized by objectives, an outline, and a list of undefined key terms. Each chapter opens with a case study, and various tips are scattered throughout the chapters. Three appendixes also are included.
Assessment: Although well intended, this book is a major disappointment as the content has been oversimplified to the point of being factually incorrect. As a result, this book only serves to perpetuate negative myths about aging and the aged.
