Editorial Reviews

Rita Olivieri
This pocket-sized reference book provides up-to-date clinical information for common medical problems in all areas of nursing practice. This is the first edition of this handbook, which is prepared as a companion to the sixth edition of The Lippincott Manual of Nursing Practice. The topics are arranged in alphabetical order to allow for ease of use in the clinical or home care setting. The purpose is to provide readily available clinical information for practicing nurses and student nurses in the clinical setting. Theeditor notes that the book is compact enough to carry in one's pocket, concise enough to read quickly in the clinical setting, yet thorough enough to consult as complex situations arise. The editor has incorporated nursing, gerontologic, and pediatric alerts as well as community care considerations to highlight important patient care considerations. This book is useful for students and practicing nurses in all clinical settings. For the student and the nurse, this book provides basic clinical information in a readily available format that can be referenved and understood quickly. The editor is an adult nurse practitioner. Information for each topic is arranged with a description of the disease, assessment, diagnostic evaluation, collaborative management, and nursing interventions. This manual includes many useful and instructive illustrations throughout the chapters (i.e., renal calculi that may obstruct the urinary tract at different sites). The table of contents is clearly arranged and the index is inclusive with useful subheadings. This book provides a handy and informative resource for quick review or reference in the clinical setting. Theinformation is concise and provides an overview of most medical and surgical diagnostic topics. The nature of this manual requires that the nurse or student refer to other sources for specific information regarding lab values and drug dosages. In the complex world of today's healthcare, this book provides an easy to use tool to help the nurse or nursing student understand and absorb a vast amount of information about medical or surgical nursing problems, and as a result, provide more focused nursing assessments, interventions, and evaluations.

This textbook is written for nursing students to facilitate coverage of the maternal/newborn and child health nursing content. As a combined textbook it presents a view of maternal/newborn and childhealth care as a continuum of knowledge. The purpose of this undergraduate textbook is to present a comprehensive view of maternal/newborn and child healthcare content in the context of families and society. As the author points out, at the same time maternal/newborn and child health information is increasing, less time is devoted to either area in standard curricula. This textbook is a worthy addition to the area. This book is written for undergraduate nursing students in a combined course in maternal/newborn and child health or for a curriculum in which the concepts are integrated. The author also believes it is appropriate for graduate students expanding their knowledge. I believe it is appropriate for undergraduate students learning and reviewing this content, as well as for graduate student review. As a combination textbook, expansion of material is limited, thus sacrificing its comprehensiveness. This author is a credible authority in the area of maternal/child health, particularly in child health. This is a combined textbook presenting maternal/newborn health and child health content in an holistic context. Unique features include content combination, family context focus on National Health Goals, clinical vignettes, checkpoint questions with answers in the appendixes, and critical thinking exercises. In addition, the text presents boxes that address delegation of care and staff, as well as communication enhancers. The color photography, though limited, facilitates student learning. Itis recommended that the color photography be expanded, as well as boxed material and hormonal and ovulation content. This textbook is a worthy addition to the maternal/newborn health and child healthcare texts. For faculty desiring a combined textbook grounded firmly in context, this textbook will meet their educational needs. If such faculty desires a strong reference book in maternal/newborn health and/or child healthcare, this textbook is more limited. I strongly recommend this textbook for faculty in integrated curriculums or desiring to present the maternal/newborn health and child health content as a continuum of knowledge -- a concept I enthusiastically endorse.

Booknews
New edition of a text that views maternal-newborn and child health care not as two separate disciplines but as a continuum of knowledge. Basic themes include the experience of wellness and illness as family- centered events, the perception of pregnancy and childbirth as periods of wellness in the life of a woman, and the importance of a knowledge of child development in the planning of nursing care. It also includes themes reflective of changes in healthcare delivery and the importance of meeting the needs of a culturally diverse population. The accompanying self-study CD-ROM contains 300 multiple-choice NCLEX- style questions. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    A must have for students and new nurses

    This is a great resource. It contains an overview of the disease, then provides assessment info, nursing care, and patient teaching. It was a great reference to have when writing care plans. The assessment info gives a quick overview for a focused assessment. It fits in your lab coat or scrubs pocket. I love it!
