9780826108333: Gerontology Nursing Case Studies: 100 Narratives for Learning

This is an excellent teaching guide and resource manual for instructors, gerontological nursing students, and practicing nurses and social workers who wish to learn more about geriatric concerns and care. It will be kept by nursing students long after they graduate as a guide to resources that will be valuable throughout their nursing careers. As a home care nurse working mainly with the geriatric community, I found the resources helpful in my practice. As an instructor, I found the book to be a very useful guide for teaching geriatrics. Score: 90, 4 Stars.-Doody's Medical Reviews The case narrative approach of this book promotes active learning that is more meaningful to students (and practicing nurses) and more likely to increase the transfer of evidence into practice. An excellent resource for faculty (staff educators) to facilitate critical learning skills. Liz Capezuti, PhD, RN, FAAN Dr. John W. Rowe Professor in Successful AgingCo-Director, Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing New York University College of Nursing This is a terrific text that provides nurses and other health care providers [with] good basic information about clinical problems and challenges we face in providing care to older adults. It should be considered required reading in all undergraduate programs. From the foreword byBarbara Resnick, PhD, CRNP, FAAN, FAANPProfessor, University of Maryland School of Nursing Sonya Ziporkin Gershowitz Chair in Gerontology At the heart of this unique volume are 100 case studies of older adults that address nearly every issue-physical, mental, and psychosocial-that may confront health care providers who work with the aging population. These case studies, culled from contributors with several centuries' worth of combined nursing expertise, are designed to guide nursing students in the development of interventions that encompass both complementary and alternative health strategies. Exercises interspersed throughout each case study are designed to foster critical thinking and decision-making skills. These case narratives provide a holistic approach to problem solving in regard to political, ethical, and legal issues; loss and end-of-life issues; elder abuse; depression, addiction and suicide; self-esteem and family relationships; sexuality; age-related health issues; cognitive impairment; cultural diversity as it relates to aging; pain management; and sleep disturbances. The volume also addresses such contemporary psychosocial issues as gambling addiction, hoarding behavior, emergency preparedness, the aging driver, and long-distance caregiving. Key Features: Provides 100 evidence-based case studies Cultivates development of critical thinking and decision-making Features realistic, contemporary scenarios Designed for use across the gerontology nursing curriculum Geared for AACN and NLN Accreditation Organized according to the needs of actual clinical settings

Score: 90, 4 Stars. -Doody's Medical Reviews

""Donna Bowles's "Gerontology Nursing Case Studies" is a unique volume that effectively addresses the lack of gerontology case studies for use with undergraduate nursing students. Case studies are a pedagogically powerful approach to active learning that offer opportunities to apply content to clinical practice.""--The Gerontologist

Book Description Springer Publishing Co Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. [This book] provides a comprehensive understanding of the opportunities for all of us working with vulnerable populations to develop thoughtful, workable programs. The topics presented are not limited to the severely mentally ill, but it is an encyclopedia of resources and creative options for service to veterans, the homeless, the elderly. This book challenges us to think creatively and develop programs and services for the people in our society who are most often overlooked and forgotten. Alan E. Siegel, Ed.D. Chief, Mental Health Service, MIT Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychology, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School [This book is] the perfect primer for anyone seeking to understand the latest trends in psychiatric care for vulnerable people today. Ted Houghton Supportive Housing Network of New York It is rare for a single book to discuss innovative practices that affect such a broad array of vulnerable groups, including children and families, older people and people with severe mental illness. Together, these essays allow readers to identify similarities and differences with regard to the needs of these populations, the conditions that may exacerbate their problems, and the adequacy of the programs and services designed to address their needs. It also may help readers identify lessons from innovations targeted at one group that may be helpful in another policy arena. Michael K. Gusmano, PhD Research Scholar The Hastings Center Vulnerable populations typically present with multiple overlapping issues, such as poverty, substance abuse, mental illness, or other health issues that require varying services and treatments. This book provides students and professionals in health care and service delivery with innovative programs and models to address the needs of these vulnerable populations. This essential text offers new approaches to program design, service delivery, evaluation, and funding. Strategies for introducing these innovations-such as cross-system coordination and blended funding-are described in detail, using real, evidence-based programs from around the country as examples. Experts from across program delivery systems, as well as from academia and government, share their practice experience. Key features: * Addresses innovative services for children and youth with multiple mental health and/or substance abuse needs * Describes health care needs for LGBTQ youth and adults * Examines housing issues for persons with psychiatric disabilities, veterans, and older adults * Offers innovative program approaches for refugees, older adults, and the disabled * Discusses the impact of new media, health literacy, and the consumer/survivor movement on service delivery.
