This volume, like the first edition, is an important milestone in the field of gerontological nursing, reflecting the growing number of nurses actively involved in geriatric care and clinical research in hospitals.

Thoroughly revised and updated, the second edition provides the collective thinking of experts who strive to ask and answer such key questions as: Who should receive advanced technological care? When should care stop? and Who determines vitality? The comprehensive coverage includes sound guidelines for nursing assessment and management; basic clinical issues with elderly populations; specialized practice prools and advances; and lively discussion of social and policy issues. Essential reading for students, educators, and practitioners committed to quality care for the hospitalized elderly.
