Overview

This book addresses the nursing management of a patient's psychosocial response to both chronic and acute physical illness, traumatic injury, loss, and grief. Care of the patient's family receives compassionate focus as well. Powerful coverage of varied areas of care provide not only the latest developments in traditional approaches, but also the most current alternative approaches deemed effective in meeting the emotional, spiritual, and physical care of an individual patient. New chapters in this edition address: stress and its effects on the body; the two most common outcomes of ineffective coping: anxiety and depression; clinical specialties, including oncology and hospice, pain management, home care, emergency room, maternal-child, pediatric/adolescent, general medical-surgical, and older adult; the challenges of multicultural nursing; therapeutic touch (TT); holism and its interactive effects on health and illness, including "complementary" therapeutic options.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carol Ren Kneisl, MS, RN, CS (Nursing Transitions, Inc.)
Description: This expanded third edition of this book focuses on psychosocial concepts, assessments, and interventions in the physical illness setting. The previous edition was published in 1989.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide reliable psychosocial assessment, diagnosis, planning, and intervention recommendations to reduce the emotional pain of patients and families and to increase their potential for adaptation to illness. The objectives are met completely and are worthy, because this area is not given enough emphasis in medical-surgical nursing textbooks.
Audience: Written for nurses in intensive care, acute care, and home settings and for nursing students in all settings, it includes home, emergency room, hospital, and hospice settings and a wide variety of clinical conditions (chronic illness, pain, cancer, dying, pregnancy, birth anomalies, etc). Chapters are written by a nice blend of clinicians and academicians from diverse geographical settings. The primary author is well known.
Features: Illustrations are adequate in number and form. The references are adequate but do not include 1994 or 1995 references. The table of contents and index are adequate. Tables and boxes enhance learning and draw attention to important concepts. However, their presence is uneven; several chapters, especially contributed chapters, have no tables or boxes. There is no glossary or appendix.
Assessment: Although some of the contributed chapters are not of the same high quality as those written by the primary author, this book can be valuable in the wide variety of settings in which nurses now practice. This new edition is certainly justified, and I would recommend its purchase by libraries, bookstores, and individuals.
