Pearson/Prentice Hall, 2008 - Education - 1853 pages
This book is the Single volume of Medical-Surgical Nursing: Critical Thinking in Client Care and is a clear presentation of patient care, with its consistent format and narrative text, boxes, tables, graphics, and photographs. This book is built around functional health patterns, a framework used by many schools of nursing. With a focus on developing decision-making skills, this book encourages readers to think critically, thoughtfully, and realistically through an abundance of case studies and examples. Because nursing care is organized around prioritized diagnoses with interventions and rationales, readers quickly understand the rationale of each action.
