Included is a chapter on alternative and complementary therapies. This edition has updated evidence-based content and the latest Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses standards of practice, a new chapter on venous thromboembolic disease, new patient safety and risk management strategies, information on the latest assessment and monitoring devices, and new standardized terminology and definitions."
