Summary
The fully updated Sixth Edition of this respected resource combines a clear, reader-friendly style with a new integrative approach that emphasizes the emotional and spiritual aspects of aging, the self-care and nurturing of the gerontological nurse, and the role of complementary and alternative therapies in elder nursing care. This book changes the focus of materials from a nurse-centered approach, to a focus on elder-centered care, which highlights how to promote the type of high-quality life that older adults desire and need. In color for the first time, Gerontological Nursing includes such features as: Key Concept Boxes, Points to Ponder Boxes, Critical Thinking Exercises, and Sample Care Plans. - Publisher
