Overview

How can plants be used in caring for and comforting people? This CD-ROM shows nurses how to successfully integrate herbs into a caring practice alongside more conventional, biomedical therapies. A browser-based product that runs on both Windows and Mac OS operating systems, it contains a searchable database of over 50 herbs that are specifically relevant to nursing practice. Each herb profile is a compilation of data drawn from biomedical, nursing, and botanical literature, as well as traditional healing resources. The herb information is also organized by the health patterns nurses encounter in daily practice for easier referencing. This CD-ROM may be used on its own, or as a companion to Delmar's Integrative Herb Guide for Nurses ( 2002 by Delmar).
