Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carole E. Torok, PhD, RN, C (SUNY Institute of Technology at Utica-Rome)
Description: This second edition handbook of community and home health nursing includes resource data for the home visit; assessment, screening, and teaching tools; and nutrition and intervention guides for nursing practice in the home and community. It offers practical measurement tools and guidelines for children, adults, the elderly, and families across settings. The environmental, situational, and cultural assessment tools, patient education information, and problem-focused screening tools and intervention guides provide substantive material for day-to-day practice.
Purpose: Its purpose is to offer practical instruments, guidelines, hints, and charts to plan care and intervene with individuals and families in home and community settings.
Audience: Intended primarily for home health and community nurses, this handbook is useful to both practicing nurses and students in collecting information that can be used to evaluate healthcare outcomes.
Features: The overall design of this larger pocket-sized handbook facilitates usage in community-based practice. It is a practical, ready reference, with a descriptive table of contents that includes subheadings and delineations for each section and an easy-to-read index. It contains illustrations that demonstrate equipment and procedures.
Assessment: This handbook is an excellent resource for nurses and nursing students in home and community health practice. There is emphasis on individuals and families across the lifespan, with added focus on those with special home healthcare needs, e.g., those with mobility and respiratory problems and clients with AIDS, diabetes, and high-risk pregnancy. The forms, tables, and checklists provide a framework for assessment, measurement, and decision-making. The nutrition guides and teaching tools have been reorganized and updated from the first edition. Cultural assessment and client education related to pharmacological issues are new additions. This reference is easy to use and is most appropriate for individual, healthcare facility, or nursing education library purchase.
