Overview

In its full-color, fifth edition, Mary Townsend's Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing: Concepts of Care in Evidence-Based Practice is still the most clearly written text on the subject. The stress/adaptation model remains the conceptual framework for the delivery of nursing care, providing a foundation of psychiatric mental health nursing knowledge to the student. New to this edition is an increased coverage of the biological causes of disease. Selected DSM-IV-TR disorders, such as schizophrenia, anxiety, and mood disorders, will include graphic brain illustrations and boxed information on psychobiological aspects of the disorder and its treatment, including the reasons specific medications can cause certain side effects. Each book will also include a Student CD-ROM with helpful learning and teaching aids, including: an electronic test bank with nearly 300 questions, including rationales for correct and incorrect answers and 50 new alternate format NCLEX[registered]-style questions; more than 400 helpful learning activities; 55+ reproducible psychotropic drug monographs that can be carried to clinicals; client education teaching guides, which can be reproduced by the student as client/family handouts; and many useful assessments, tools, and tables, including levels of anxiety, a medication assessment tool, care plans and critical pathways, and assigning nursing diagnoses to client behaviors.

The content of the text is fine however i purchased the e- version for use on my tablet while in class. Unfortunately, this text can only be used on my lap top. It is not supported by my ipad or dell tablet...... Which for me defeats the purpose of buying the text electronically :(
