Overview

Now in its Fifth Edition, this text provides a comprehensive and wellness-oriented approach to the theory and practice of gerontologic nursing. Organized around the author's unique "functional consequences theory" of gerontologic nursing, the book explores "normal" age-related changes and risk factors that often interfere with optimal health and functioning, to effectively identify and teach health-promotion interventions.

The author provides research-based background information and a variety of practical assessment and intervention strategies for use in every clinical setting. Highlights of this edition include expanded coverage of evidence-based practice, more first-person stories, new chapters, and clinical tools such as assessment tools recommended by the Hartford Institute of Geriatric Nursing.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carol Ann Siem, MSN (University of Missouri-Columbia)
Description: This book on the holistic nursing of the older adult covers wellness and the positive aspects of aging as well as the negative effects.
Purpose: This is intended to provide a foundation for providing wellness-oriented nursing care for older adults. This is a timely publication as our society is bombarded by information on the importance of staying healthy and well as we age. The book does an excellent job of going through the many aspects of aging from wellness and nursing considerations to psychosocial function and physical function.
Audience: It is written for nursing students, but it could be used by those who have completed their initial schooling in the area of nursing of the older adult.
Features: The book starts with learning objectives, and then adds key terms and illustrations. Icons in each chapter help students focus on risk factors, functional consequences, nursing assessment, and interventions, among others. The chapters end with further resources.
Assessment: This is an excellent manual for nursing students caring for the elderly. It provides the foundation for learning the normal aging process and ways to promote positive life style changes.

    Nursing for elders

    This book is well written and includes vignettes that are great for the "New" nursing student, although I found these little snippets a bit hohum for someone who has reutrned to school after a few decades. Overall, it is a great resource for anyone looking after the massive amount of baby-boomers who are aging into this group cohort.
