Overview

This portable book condenses the essential, need-to-know information from the Ignatavicius & Workman text into a practical A-Z reference for clinical days. The CLINICAL COMPANION formerly entitled "Pocket Companion" has been thoroughly revised by an author team with a wealth of experience in walking students through clinicals. Its newly streamlined format is easier than ever to read and enables readers to find essential information in seconds. The Clinical Companion now incorporates the very latest, 2001-2002 NANDA nursing diagnoses and includes both the complete 2001-2002 NANDA list and the Communication Quick Reference for Spanish-Speaking Clients. It's an essential companion for clinicals.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Penny Wolfe Moore, RNC, PhD (Southwestern Adventist University)
Description: This companion book is a small paperback with information about medical conditions arranged in alphabetical order. This edition updates the previous edition published in 1999.
Purpose: This book "is a quick reference to the vital information you need for dealing with conditions commonly seen in the clinical setting. It is designed to be used as a stand-alone reference for nurses in a variety of adult health nursing areas, or as a companion" to the main textbook. These worthy objectives have been met.
Audience: This book will provide students with the factual information they need to develop comprehensive plans of care. Nurses in adult medical-surgical practice will find this a quick reference for direct patient care. Libraries and patient care units will want this book on the shelf.
Features: According to the authors, "The book is divided into two parts. Part I covers special concerns of the clinical nurse, such as nursing care of the dying client and postoperative nursing care. Part II, by far the larger part of the book, provides need-to-know information about the diseases and disorders that nurses in clinical practice encounter most often. Approximately 280 disorders are included, organized alphebetically." The appendixes cover such information as assessment guides, ethical decision making, ECG intrepretation, Internet sources, and communicating in Spanish. There are no illustrations. Each disorder begins with an overview of the problem. Then information about collaborative management is presented with special information for targeted groups, such as women and the elderly as well as cultural and community-based issues.
Assessment: This is an excellent little book. I plan on using it as a gift for the medical-surgical nurses who serve as preceptors for our students. New and seasoned nurses will find this a great little reference book.
