Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amy McClune, PhD, RN (Edinboro University of Pennsylvania)
Description: This fifth edition of a respected work describes important components in the nursing process and presents detailed care plans for a host of medical diagnoses that can be individualized for care.
Purpose: This well known resource includes recent evidence to support the nursing process. A new chapter focuses on a new diagnosis, moral distress.
Audience: It is written for both practicing and student nurses. It is also promoted as a care planning resource for healthcare institutions. The author shows her expertise by updating and augmenting her ongoing work related to nursing diagnosis.
Features: The book begins with an overview of the Validation Project completed in the mid-1990s that laid the foundation. The first section is dedicated to reviewing components critical to planning, evaluating, documenting, and communicating nursing care. Using the Bifocal Clinical Practice Model, Bandura's Self Efficacy Model, and various other theories, the author links care planning to a strong theoretical basis. Nursing interventions focus on independent nursing care and link diagnoses to potential complications.
Assessment: With this fifth edition, the author continues to build on the nursing process from both a theoretical and a practical viewpoint. This edition includes updated evidence and examples for planning nursing care and continues to be a key resource for care planning.

This book provides a framework for nurses to plan, implement, and evaluate care. It demonstrates how to document these plans. The purpose is to provide examples of how to manage client situations from a nursing perspective. It is focused on helping students to transfer theoretical knowledge into practice. The audience is students and practicing nurses. This book begins with an explanation of a validation project regarding diagnostic statements. Then the bifocal clinical practice model, the organizing framework, is described. Collaborative and nursing problems are covered, which help the reader distinguish the unique qualities of nursing. Documentation including legal implications, adult health problems are covered, as are all facets of surgical care including same day surgery, pre-, post-, and recovery room care. This book contains information on procedures/diagnostic tests in terms of nursing care, something not readily found in other nursing care plan books. Care paths are provided to help the nurse to recognize the usual progression of a client towards discharge. The presentation of material in charts and short segments with sidebars that highlight discharge criteria and time frames for completion are unique features. A shortcoming is the lack of obstetrics, neonatal, and pediatric content. The discussion of sickle cell anemia is the only place where children are mentioned. There really are no competing texts except those designed strictly for nursing care plans or documentation. One example is Axton's Pediatric Care Plans (Addison-Wesley, 1993). The editor, whose text is widely used in nursing schools across the country, is a well respected authority in careplans. This third edition with its added features of care paths will continue the fine tradition of quality work.

    Excellent Book for Nursing!

    I would highly recommend this book to help in writing nursing care plans. It provides examples on how to diagnose, write out care plans, and how to document. This is a great book to have in any nursing student library.
