"Medical-Surgical Nursing," Third Edition, is the best application-based medical-surgical nursing text available today! Students and instructors alike love its organization and clear presentation of patient care, with its consistent format and multiple methodologies for student learners. This textbook is built around a framework of Functional Health Patterns. With a focus on developing decision-making skills, the authors encourage students 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, students quickly understand the rationale of each action. FEATURES INCLUDE: New--Expanded coverage of aging adult/end-of-life care, cultural diversity, and diseases specific to bioterrorism. New Chapters--Nursing Care of Clients with Substance Abuse (Chapter 12) and Nursing Care of Clients with Musculoskeletal Disorders (Chapter 39). New Content--Health promotion, home care with resources, and complementary therapies. New-Medialinks refer students to the CD-ROM or website for additional information.
