Editorial Reviews

Robin Webb-Corbett
This textbook is written to provide foundational maternity and pediatric nursing content with a family perspective. The editors have combined two separate texts, Gorrie's Foundations of Maternal-Newborn Nursing, 2nd Edition (WB Saunders, 1998) and Ashwill's Nursing Care of Children: Principles and Practice (WB Saunders ,1997) to review important physiological and pathophysiological processes with instructive color plates and tables. This book is written to ""provide a foundation of care of these individuals and their families to the nursing student or the nurse entering maternal or pediatric nursing."" This combination of maternity, women's health, and pediatric nursing is a worthwhile endeavor, particularly with the emphasis on family. Family-centered care in combination with strong physiological and pathophysiological care is appropriate to the student learning needs and the practice arena. Content in this text is generally very well covered. For some areas, content brevity is noted as in most combination foundational texts. According to the editors, this text is written to provide foundational maternity and pediatric nursing content for nursing students or the practicing nurse entering maternity or pediatric nursing. I agree that it is appropriate for those populations and the contributors are credible authorities in the areas of maternal and women's health and pediatric nursing. Strengths of this textbook beyond the integrated content include use of instructive color plates and tables. In addition, varied nursing care plans are presented dependent upon the content to facilitate student learning. Critical thinking exercises are placed throughoutthe text and ""critical to know"" content is a condensed summary of important material. Unique to this text is the use of pediatric photo stories and clinical reference pages to distinguish differences in adult and pediatric systems. These particular features strengthen content and will assist students in their retention of the material. In addition, the table of contents and index are helpful. The only shortcoming is the brevity of content in some areas (i.e., discussion of types of cardiac surgery for congenital hearts). Still, this is to be expected in this kind of text. This text is well written and the editors do an excellent job of presenting maternity and women's health and pediatric foundational content. Numerous illustrative color plates and tables are included to help emphasize important content. In addition, unique features include pediatric photo stories and clinical reference pages. Particularly valued are the pathophysiology boxes in the pediatric chapters to provide a scientific basis for nursing care. I highly recommend this text for faculty or practicing nurses seeking a combination text.
