Overview

With an equal focus on community-based and acute care-based delivery systems, this comprehensive introduction to maternal-newborn nursing and pediatric nursing provides an integration of complementary care modalities, culturally sensitive care and evidenced-based practice into the discussion of nursing care. Designed to be user-friendly, the volume features extensive cross reference icons that reduce the redundancy often found in similar books and gives attention to various learning styles. Both examples of clinical paths and standard nursing care plans based on the nursing process model are presented and the NIC and NOC classification systems are incorporated. This comprehensive volume covers introductory concepts, the reproductive years and beyond, pregnancy and family, birth and the family, the postpartal childbearing family and newborn, care and needs of children, and caring for children with alterations in health status. For those wanting an overview of family centered care.
