Maternity & women's health care
Formerly known as Maternity and Gynecologic care, the title of the 6th edition reflects the changing focus of maternity nursing toward a greater emphasis on women's health care. With a focus on the concepts of caring and critical thinking throughout every chapter, this new edition has been thoroughly revised to address today's ever-changing health care environment. It includes expanded content on health promotion, family, home care, critical care, childbirth education, culture, and health care of women throughout the life span. A new full-color design provides content reinforcement and visual stimulation.
