Overview

Based on AJN Book of the Year Psychiatric Nursing, Contemporary Practice 3e, this dynamic learning resource guides you through the biological, psychological, and sociocultural aspects of mental illness and its treatment-with content focused exclusively on Canadian practice standards and priorities. Created chapter-by-chapter from the experience of leading authorities in Canadian nursing practice and research, this superior learning text features knowledge-building content tailored to the particular needs and demands of Canadian nursing education.

Look inside and discover...: Research Boxes outline important research conducted by Canadian nurses. CRNE Notes help you build competence and confidence for the CRNE. New chapters reflecting Canadian priorities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Forensic Psychiatric Nursing, Ethical Psychiatric Nursing Practice. More content on spirituality reflects the link between mental health, psychiatric nursing care, and spiritual beliefs.

New features enhance comprehension!: Updated and revised chapters are shorter and more readable. New research-based emphasis focuses on the relevance of mental health nursing research to clinical practice. "In a Life" boxes describe famous people or places and their associations and experiences with mental health issues. Two separate units on the child/adolescent and the elderly outline the special nursing care needs of these populations.
