Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Josie Martin Bowman, RN, MSN, PhD (East Carolina University )
Description: This is the ninth edition of a book that presents nursing care of clients with disorders arranged under a system approach focusing on a medical model and diagnosis. The previous edition was in 2003.
Purpose: According to the authors, this book will "provide essential information that will help nurses meet these challenges (of caring for clients) and embrace expanding opportunities."
Audience: It is written for nursing faculty, nursing students, and practicing nurses. The authors are masters prepared nurses involved in nursing education.
Features: The chapters all have a similar format that includes words to know, learning objectives, pathophysiology of the problem, and assessment and management of the problem: medical and nursing. Each chapter ends with a care plan illustrating the chapter's focus. Relevant illustrations and tables are used throughout the book. The chapters are clearly written and organized. Additional available resources include a CD-ROM, LiveAdvise (online resources), and instructor resources.
Assessment: The book is clearly written at an appropriate reading level for students and practicing nurses. The authors have updated the material and described the new material in the preface. One example is that in the discussion of caring for clients with integumentary disorders, the authors include the risk and care needed for tattoos and body piercing. I would recommend use of this book for nurses and in schools of nursing.

    Horrible.

    Took 2 days for them to tell me that they are unable to ship the item for reasons on their own behalf.
