9780826194046: Gerontology Nursing Case Studies, Second Edition: 100+ Narratives for Learning

Praise for the first edition:

"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

óDoody's Medical Reviews

"[This] 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."

óThe Gerontologist

"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."

óLiz 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

Vivid case examples help guide nurses in developing appropriate interventions that include complementary and alternative health therapies and provide a basis for evaluating outcomes. Exercises interspersed throughout each case study include numerous open-ended and multiple-choice questions to facilitate learning and critical thinking. The text is unique in that some of the presented cases focus on psychosocial issues such as gambling addiction, hoarding behavior, emergency preparedness, and long-distance caregiving. Cases also depict geriatric clients who are living healthy, productive lives to counter myths and negative attitudes about older adults. Scenarios demonstrating ethical dilemmas prepare students to appropriately respond to "gray area" situations. The text is geared for AACN and NLN accreditation and is organized according to the needs of actual clinical settings. With cases that take place in the home and community or within primary, acute, and long-term care facilities, this book will be useful for courses specific to gerontology nursing or across any nursing curriculum.

New to the Second Edition:

  • A completely new section of Aging Issues Affecting the Family
  • New cases addressing health care disparities, aging in place, and prevention of catheter-associated urinary tract infection
  • Additional contemporary case studies
  • The addition of Quality for Safety in Nursing Education (QSEN) initiatives
  • A greater focus on prioritization and delegation of client's needs infused throughout exercises

Book Description Springer Publishing Company. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 300 pages. Designated a Doodys Core Title! 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.

Rowe Professor in Successful Aging Co-Director, Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing, NYU College of Nursing This highly praised text for nursing students, now in its second edition, presents 110 unique, interactive geriatric health case studies depicting a vast range of realistic scenarios-physical, mental, and psychosocial--that may present to nurses who work with aging adults. With exercises that reinforce learning, each case study reflects a holistic approach, encompassing mind, body, and spirit, to the presented problem. The second edition features several new cases and thoroughly updated cases from the first edition that include new health guidelines, new health promotion criteria, web links, references, and additional resources. The second edition also provides additional video clips and animations embedded throughout the text, Quality for Safety in Nursing Education (QSEN) Initiatives, a greater focus on prioritization and delegation, and two entirely new sections: Medications for the Elderly and their Implications and Specialty Nursing and Healthcare Roles. Vivid case examples help to guide nurses in developing appropriate interventions that include complementary and alternative health therapies and provide a basis for evaluating outcomes. Exercises interspersed throughout each case study include numerous open-ended and multiple-choice questions to facilitate learning and creative thinking. Student learners may be asked to provide information, go to the Web to seek current guidelines, give opinions, reflect or share relevant personal experiences, thus facilitating a highly interactive learning experience. The text is geared for AACN and NLN Accreditation and is organized according to the needs of actual clinical settings.
