Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jayalakshmi Jambunathan, PhD, MSN, MA, BSN, BSc (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: This third edition provides current, state-of-the-art, comprehensive coverage of psychiatric nursing using a balanced medical and nursing approach. There is strong emphasis on DSM-IV-TR guidelines, collaborative diagnoses, and related treatments, along with a practical approach for psychiatric nurses to provide quality care. The previous edition was published in 2000.
Purpose: The purpose is primarily to assist students and practicing psychiatric nurses deliver professional nursing care for clients and their families, regardless of time, place or circumstance, amidst emerging treatment complexities. This is a much needed book as psychiatric nurses need to learn to blend their broad base of scientific knowledge and interpersonal skills in order to meet the challenges of biologic and technologic advances in treating mentally ill clients and their families. The authors have succeeded in meeting these objectives through a skilful composition of the fundamental concepts of communication, nursing process, psychobiology, legal, ethical, cultural and spiritual care initially, followed by the specific mental disorders and treatment modalities.
Audience: According to the authors, the book is intended to assist students and practicing psychiatric nurses in providing professional nursing care for clients with mental illness, as well as their families, in a complex and dynamic health care delivery system. Both authors are credible in that they are certified clinical specialists in adult psychiatric mental health nursing, and educators in their field.
Features: "The book is organized into five sections, beginning with the introduction of basic psychiatric concepts, changes, and trends in mental health that shape the professional nursing role, followed by specific mental disorders, related therapeutic treatment modalities, and timely issues and concerns that clients experience in different settings. There are many features that are appealing, including understanding and applying research, case studies, legal case reports, clinical pathways, additional treatment modalities, collaborative diagnoses and review questions. Full-color design throughout the book promotes visual appeal, and helps emphasize key pedagogic features as well as psychiatric concepts through portrayal of graphic illustrations. Inclusion of assessment tools related to various mental disorders might have been helpful for both students and psychiatric nurses to assess progress in clients."
Assessment: The book is simple to read, succinct, and easy to understand, and comparable to other books used for teaching students. Hence its usefulness cannot be understated. The authors have added illustrations and more visual appeal to this edition through color design. Additionally, DSM-IV-TR taxonomy, 2003-2004 NANDA nursing diagnoses, more content on family therapy, online resources, and relevant alternative and complementary therapies related to the various mental disorders, all justify replacing the previous edition.
Eileen Trigoboff
This second edition text (the first was published in 1996) is a comprehensive examination of the field of psychiatric mental health nursing. There is a deliberate and thorough effort made to give shape to the specialty and to make it approachable. This text is primarily intended to help students and practicing psychiatric nurses deliver professional nursing care for clients and their families in a variety of circumstances. The objectives are well met. This text is written for students, new graduates, and seasoned practitioners and has applicability to each segment of this audience. It is written by an excellent panel of contributors. Some of the best features of the book include the clear, useful illustrations and how complex concepts are explained in a rational and easily digested manner. The Nursing Care in the Community boxes give an important outpatient perspective to diagnostic groupings. Research is highlighted as a basis of nursing interventions. Very helpful examples of less commonly known doctrines, terms, functions, and trends are found throughout the text. The tear-out drug cards are a staple in this specialty and continue to be a necessity. Both the student and the expert would appreciate this presentation -- especially the breadth and depth. The organization of the topics and the interesting explanations make this a functional text as a primer for the student and a resource for the expert psychiatric mental health nurse clinician.
