Overview

Integrative medicine is defined as healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person (body, mind, and spirit) as well as all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative.

This volume is the first complete roadmap to integrative nursing, providing a step-by-step guide to assess and clinically treat conditions through a variety of combined methodologies including wellness, lifestyle enhancement, and nutrition. This text puts forth both the skills and theoretical frameworks for multidisciplinary leaders to consider and implement integrative healthcare strategies within institutions, including several case studies involving practical nursing-led initiatives.

Sections one and two cover the foundations, including principles and best practices, healing environments, whole systems healing, and measurement of outcomes. The third section outlines major areas of symptom management such as pain, nausea, insomnia, anxiety, depression, stress, and behavioral dysfunction. The fourth and fifth sections address applications to patient populations, models of care, and models of education. The final section collects global perspectives.

The academic rigor of the text is balanced by practical and relevant content that can be readily implemented into practice for both established professionals as well as students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate nursing programs.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is useful for gaining an understanding of integrative nursing. It provides a comprehensive and thoughtful approach to this topic." —Doody's Health Sciences Book Review
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martha Scheckel, PhD, RN (Michigan State University College of Nursing)
Description: This book provides sound theoretical, conceptual, and evidence-based descriptions and applications of integrative nursing.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a roadmap to learn about and apply integrative nursing. The authors achieve their purpose through a salient presentation of integrative nursing that helps strengthen nurses' capacity to provide holistic nursing care. The authors meet their objective, demonstrating how integrative nursing puts nurses in touch with their roots and purpose.
Audience: The authors aim the book at students, practitioners, and leaders of caregiving who can use what they learn in their areas of clinical practice. It is also useful for laypersons interested in the topic. The authors are well known in the field of integrative nursing.
Features: The first of the book's seven parts is a multidimensional presentation of integrative nursing in specific areas of nursing practice and its settings, while the second emphasizes wellbeing as a core premise of integrative nursing, incorporating contemporary approaches to helping others achieve wellbeing. Part III is critical for nurses who use or want to use integrative nursing to manage common symptoms of those for whom they provide care. The applications of integrative nursing delineated in part IV demonstrate how it is operationalized in many settings, with various populations, and in specialty areas of nursing practice. Part V focuses on approaches to incorporating integrative nursing into nursing, continuing, and patient education. Part VI provides a unique dimension, describing integrative nursing in developed countries. The final part encourages readers to be mindful of how integrative nursing can, indeed, return nursing to its roots. Each contributor's approach to presenting topics, makes the style of each chapter unique. The models, boxes, and tables are especially helpful in understanding concepts.
Assessment: This book is useful for gaining an understanding of integrative nursing. It provides a comprehensive and thoughtful approach to this topic.
