Learn dementia care from an experienced colleague!
From a senior faculty member of the Copper Ridge Institute comes peer-to-peer guidance on how you can give the best possible care to dementia patients and their families.
Part of McGraw-Hill's Nurse to Nurse series, this title includes PDA download of the entire text, vignettes, nursing alerts that feature just-in-time information on complex or particularly important aspects of patient care, and Therapeutic Dialogue Boxes that provide nurses with specific communication solutions for both patients and their families. Coated flex-binding repels stains.
The new Nurse to Nurse series is specifically designed to simulate the teaching experience from which nurses learn best: trusted mentors carefully explaining what they must do in specific clinical situations. Written in a consistent, single-author voice, each book in the series brings the wisdom and experience of some of the foremost experts to non-specialist nurses in clinical care.
