Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marquis D. Foreman, PhD, RN, FAAN (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Nursing)
Description: This is the second edition of a reference manual that first appeared in 1995. This second edition not only updates and expands the content of the previous edition, but according to the author, includes new information on alternative and complementary therapies that could be safely integrated into conventional care.
Purpose: The purpose, as stated by the author, is to provide nurses with a quick reference to the most commonly used nursing information in gerontological nursing practice.
Audience: In the preface, the author identifies the audience as any nurse. Specifically, she mentions those nurses who have had formal training in gerontological nursing, as well as those who have not. For those nurses who have had formal training in gerontology, this text would serve as a trigger for recall.
Features: The text consists of 15 chapters organized into three sections: an introduction to gerontological nursing; special considerations; and gerontological nursing care. The nine chapters on nursing care are organized similarly: general information about the topic; causative/contributing factors; clinical manifestations; nursing process; nursing interventions; and references.
Assessment: Although this book is indeed a quick reference, its utility is greatly limited. For each of the generic care plans for any given patient care problem, a listing of causative/contributory factors and nursing interventions are provided. However, there is no background information or any sort of rationale for these lists by which a nurse could determine whether or not a specific factor or intervention is appropriate for a specific patient. Thus, this book is great for generic information, but not for specific patients.
