About the Author:

Dr. Theris A. Touhy, DNP, CNS, DPNAP

Review:

"The latest edition of Toward Healthy Aging should be on the shelf of every student and practitioner who cares for older adults, as well as those who teach them. The text is well written, timely, logically organized, and chock full of clearly presented, useful, state-of-the-science information that is easy to digest. Learning objectives, tables, boxes, figures, case studies , research features/questions and comprehensive references add to the pedagogical value of this important text." Kathleen Buckwalter, PhD, RN University of Iowa College of Nursing Iowa City, Iowa

"Building on the excellent foundation of the 1st edition in 1981 by Drs. Ebersole and Hess, this 8th edition edited by Drs. Touhy and Jett effectively communicates the essential geriatric content required for competent practice with older adults. This book also goes beyond the typical health and psychosocial issues of late adulthood by addressing important topics that truly facilitate person-centered care such as the chapters describing the use of herb and suppliants, intimacy and sexuality, relationship, roles and transitions as well as self-care spirituality and transcendence. This high-quality book is a valuable core text for undergraduate nursing students and a superb reference for practicing nurses." Elizabeth Capezuti, PhD, RN, FAAN Dr. John W. Rowe Professor in Successful Aging Co-Director, Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing New York University College of Nursing, New York
