Competent Caring: A Clinical Exemplar of a Psychiatric Nurse boxes feature the experiences and personal insights of practicing psychiatric nurses.

Nursing Treatment Plan Summary tables present care plans including patient goals with nursing interventions and rationales. Patient Education Plan and Family Education Plan tables include key information that you need to share with the patient and his or her family to facilitate shorter hospital stays and more outpatient care. Therapeutic Dialogue boxes offer examples of nurse-patient interactions. Clinical examples include selected nursing diagnoses. Focus Points provide a comprehensive, point-by-point review of the important information in each chapter.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Principles and Practice of Psychiatric Nursing, 8th Edition provides comprehensive coverage of psychiatric nursing. Beginning with fundamental coverage of all key psychiatric nursing principles, it goes on to address the complete continuum of care - including mental health promotion and illness prevention, crisis intervention, and psychiatric rehabilitation and recovery. The book then applies psychiatric nursing principles to specific clinical disorders based on adaptive-maladaptive coping responses, the six-step nursing process, and DSM-IV-TR and NANDA diagnoses. Subsequent chapters describe various modalities of treatment (psychopharmacology, somatic therapies, cognitive and behavioral therapies, managing aggressive behavior, and more), hospital-based and community-based care, and treatment of special populations. The Stuart Stress Adaptation Model provides a consistent nursing-oriented framework for understanding health and wellness. Evidence-based algorithms are presented in lieu of the less relevant critical pathways found in other texts. The latest American Nurses Association's Standards of Care prepare students for the realities of evidenced-based care in nursing practice. A vibrant, full-color design enhances and enriches students' understanding of essential concepts. Short vignettes in a patient's and family's own words give readers a different perspective of the caregiving process. Case studies present in-depth clinical scenarios that show each step of the nursing process, demonstrating realistic applications of the nursing process. Critical thinking questions interspersed throughout the text encourage independent clinical reasoning. Numerous boxes and tables throughout the book highlight important issues and current topics related to chapter content in visual, easy-to-digest segments. Citing the Evidence boxes provide summaries of recent clinical research, with new boxes added to the Evolve website each month. Nursing Treatment Plan Summaries present care plans, including patient goals with nursing interventions and rationales, to guide nursing care related to the treatment of major disorders. Patient Education Plans and Family Education Plans include key information nurses need to communicate to the patient and family members. Sample Therapeutic Dialogues for nurse-patient interactions demonstrate the difference between therapeutic and nontherapeutic communication. Clinical chapters have been carefully revised and updated to include the latest research and appropriate nursing and medical diagnoses relevant to each disorder. A strengthened family focus and more in-depth discussion of outpatient care reflect current trends in psychiatric nursing. NIC and NOC are introduced in the nursing process chapter (chapter 12) and incorporated as appropriate into disorders chapters. Chapter Focus Points at the end of each chapter provide a comprehensive review of important information. Key terms are defined in the glossary and listed with page references at the end of the chapter in which they appear. A comprehensive list of behavioral rating scales is offered as an appendix for easy reference. A companion CD-ROM offers animations, interactive exercises, review questions for the NCLEX examination, and an audio glossary for additional study and review. A companion CD-ROM offers animations, interactive exercises, review questions for the NCLEX examination, and an audio glossary for additional study and review.
