Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Laura Barbel Thielke, MS, RN (Texas Christian University)
Description: This publication presents comprehensive patient care standards for the nursing care of the adult and geriatric populations and for women's health. This sixth edition, replacing the previous edition published in 1992, is revised to meet the needs of nurses practicing in today's changing healthcare environment.
Purpose: The purpose is for reference in planning, implementing, and evaluating nursing care provided in a patient-centered, collaborative approach. It is also a resource for developing time-line based, multidisciplinary care plans (often called critical paths or care maps).
Audience: This book is written for nurses performing roles that involve either the provision, administration, or evaluation of patient care in a variety of healthcare settings. It is also useful for student nurses who are learning how to develop a plan of care.
Features: Features of this reference include black-and-white and two-color illustrations and two appendixes. Appendix A provides basic conversion charts used in providing medical-surgical care. Appendix B provides examples of how institutions have combined multidisciplinary care plans and documentation forms to create a single chart form.
Assessment: The utility of this text lies in its extreme practicality and ease of reference. Content is well organized by body system and is subdivided by specific medical conditions and procedures. The information is presented in short phrases and tables that allow for quick and easy reading. Each standard includes collaborative management section, and each chapter includes examples of multidisciplinary care plans to emphasize the collaborative practice approach to planning patient care. This edition contains two new sections for each standard entitled"Patient/Family Teaching" and "Home Care Considerations" and includes standards on domestic violence. It incorporates the most current nursing diagnoses as approved by NANDA in 1994. This book is a valuable resource for nurses committed to providing quality patient care in a patient-centered, collaborative approach.
