Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary E. Riner, MN, RN (Indiana University School of Nursing)
Description: This handbook provides quick access to succinct education material needed by patients and families in managing their own care. As healthcare continues to shift to ambulatory surgery, care in the home, the school, and the work setting, readers will find this a valuable resource in addressing education needs of a diverse client population.
Purpose: The purpose is to focus healthcare providers on what is essential to discuss with the patient. It is based on standards addressed by the JCAHO. The authors seek to provide information to enhance patient and family knowledge and skills necessary to promote recovery; make informed decisions that are based on individual needs, abilities, and preferences; promote safe and effective use of medications, equipment, and supplies; support the patient's nutritional status; and facilitate follow-up care and accessing of community resources.
Audience: This book is designed for the clinical practitioner who already understands the clinical mechanisms of the disease or disability. It provides assistance to the student seeking to organize vast amounts of information for acute and community-based patients.
Features: Each topic includes information on six categories. The topic begins with a brief definition. The signs and symptoms of the disease or disorder are those a patient would be taught to expect or observe. Similarly, the complications included are those directly associated with the disease. Diagnostic tests are listed with a brief explanation of their purpose. A reminder to provide detailed information about each of the ordered tests is given at the beginning of each list. A general listing of medical management specific to the disease, disorder, or procedure follows.
Assessment: The easy-to-use format will make this a valuable resource for the practitioner. The material is concisely organized from a patient's needs viewpoint and easily used for reference by the practitioner.
Andrea D. Posey
This handbook is a compilation of guidelines for teaching and homecare in an easy to access format. This is a second edition (the first was published in 1996); updates include the homecare section. The purpose of this publication is to assist healthcare providers in making sure their clients are well informed and educated about their particular condition. The language of the book is geared toward healthcare providers, but it is easy to read and the general reader may also benefit from the information. Many disease processes and medical conditions are covered in an alphabetical format. Each section includes a definition of the disease, etiology, signs and symptoms, treatment, home care and psychological issues. Referral and follow up guidelines complete the list. The appendixes are useful and contain information about dietary guidelines, height and weight charts, and a comprehensive resource list. This book is highly readable and the information is readily found. The medical conditions which are described range from the common to some uncommon diseases. The homecare section found in this second edition is greatly needed as more patient teaching is done in the home and the acuity of home care patients rises.
