Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Margaret A Holder, PhD (University of North Florida Brooks College of Health)
Description: This is an excellent reference and comprehensive review focusing on the nurse's role in teaching patients. It is a scaled down and simplified version of the second edition of the author's Nurse as Educator: Principles of Teaching and Learning for Nursing Practice (Jones and Bartlett, 2003)."
Purpose: This is a primary resource for basic information regarding the essential elements involved in patient teaching and learning. It is an overview of the processes and skills required for nurses to be effective patient educators with the goal of assisting patients in becoming as independent in their self-care activities as possible. These worthy objectives are met.
Audience: As a primary resource, this book is targeted at undergraduate nursing students and novices. It is probably most suitable as a quick reference and overview or as a self-study guide for those newly exposed to patient education concepts. The author and contributors are well prepared nursing faculty, researchers, and patient education coordinators. Of interest is that there are also student contributors.
Features: The book addresses learning techniques and strategies and includes several chapters focusing on learner characteristics and their needs. Features include review questions for each chapter, a comprehensive glossary, and practical information on creating, using and evaluating learning materials. An appendix on readability and comprehension tests is included. The technology and evaluation chapters are well done. However, the chapter on cultural groups is limited to a discussion of only four groups. The online instructor materials that accompany the text were not available for review.
Assessment: While there are several books available on patient education, I am not aware of one that provides such an easy to read, quick reference. This book is a must for nursing students, novices, and anyone needing to refresh their patient education skills.
