Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gloria L. Plascak, R.N., C.P.N., M.S.N.(Indiana State University)
Description: Quick Look Nursing: Growth and Development Through the Life Span presents a concise look at developmental theories, influences, and issues relative to each period from the prenatal stage through adulthood.
Purpose: The author's purpose is to further understanding of human development for health care providers in an effort to inhance relationships with colleagues and promote comfort of patients. The nature of the current health care system has dramatically influenced the provision of care of patients. It is imparative that health care professionals have an understanding of human development in order to individualize care in a system that is becoming increasingly complex. The authors presented the information on development in a manner that is concise yet complete enough to have practical application.
Audience: The authors have writtren this text for health care providers and mention that physicians and nurses benefit from knowledge in this area. The text would be useful for students, beginning professionals, as well as experienced practitioners. It is difficult, particularly for students or beginning practitioners, to understand the complexities of development, especially when dealing with infants and children who are rapidly changing . A concise reference, such as this text, could be valuable.
Features: Figures preface the chapter content in the form of summary tables, illustrations and diagrams which simplify and clarify major concepts or data relavant to the topic of discussion. Each chapter is succinct. Current terminology in the field is defined to help the reader with the understanding of the content. Classic and contemporary research and statistical findings are reported in a manner that adds validity to the discussions. Concrete examples are utilized to demonstrate application of concepts. Many chapters include a section on implications for health care providers. Topics such as identification of risk factors, assessment guidelines, and tips for anticipatory guidance are particularly helpful for students who often need assistance in making connections between theory and application to practice. A valuable self-test mechanism is provided at the conclusion of each section. The majority of test items are written at the cognitive level of knowledge and comprehension with a few items at the application level. It is lacking in higher level questions which would inhance critical thinking skill. An answer key with explanations for the correct response is provided. The explanations capture the key points of the content summarized in the chapters. This offer the reader immediate feedback and opportunity to analyze their thinking about the correct response. An up-to-date reference list should serve as a tool for health care providers to retrieve resources for further study or review of the specific subject matter..
Assessment: This text presents an overview of human development in a format that is conducive to quick review of the major concepts. It uses pedagogic tools that would be useful for instruction in the classroom, individual student use for application to clinical situations, or review and preparation for NCLEX or other exams, and as a reference for practitioners who understand the importance of the knowledge of development to patient care. This is the only text I have reviewed that has captured the core concepts of human development in such a concise way.

Written by two developmental psychologists, this text for students and practicing nurses presents an overview of human growth and development, from conception through later adult life. Topics are organized into short, two-page chapters. Some chapters are devoted to biological information, such as genetics, fetal development, nutrition, puberty, and aging. Other chapters cover psychological and sociological topics, such as the developmental theories of Freud, Erikson, and Piaget and the role of families, peers, school and society in the lives of children, adolescents, and adults.
