Reflecting the latest practices in the field, Clinical Decision Making: Case Studies in Medical-Surgical Nursing, 2nd Edition bridges the gap between theory and clinical application. Emphasizing holistic nursing care, the cases help readers sharpen critical thinking skills and gain hands-on experience applying what they learn. The more than 40 medical-surgical case histories and related questions are based on real-life client situations. Every case contains an introductory "blueprint" of variables that must be considered while evaluating a particular scenario concerning the client, nursing protocol, and setting of care.
