Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Susan R. Opas, PhD, RNC, CHES (UCLA School of Nursing)
Description: The author has written a companion to her general textbook, Maternal and Child Health Nursing. This pocket guide bears the same cover and is designed to assist the basic student upon entry to patient-care settings or to prepare for examination from the author's textbook or another basic maternal-child text. This book has four sections: maternal outlines of conditions and illnesses and descriptions, assessments, and interventions; and pediatric outlines and conditions and descriptions, assessments, and interventions.
Purpose: The author stated three purposes and objectives for this book: clinical reference, companion to her basic text, and study guide. The book is prepared to assist the student to enter into patient care as each patient diagnosis (condition) lists a brief explanation of the pathophysiology, assessment findings to observe, and basic interventions to accomplish. Use for the other objectives is not clearly delineated.
Audience: The audience for this book is exclusively undergraduate/basic entry level students.
Features: Positive features of the book are the pocket design, alphabetical arrangement of topics, and consistency in using three divided topics: description, assessment findings, and nursing implications.
Assessment: This book is a good basic reference to assist beginning students while learning in the clinical setting. The listed interventions (nursing implications) could be helpful in the preparation of nursing care plans. The author suggests use of this as a study guide. However, I would propose that students would be more inclined to use their lecture notes and assigned readings to prepare for testing. If guided, nursing faculty and students might better use this book as a supplement to education and use it with other assigned, basic maternal-child nursing textbooks.
